New Albion Cycles Drake Frame
An adventure touring frame designed around 650b/27.5" tires. Stable enough medium duty touring and bikepacking, but also offers an enjoyable ride unloaded as well. The bottom bracket height is higher than your average touring bike or road bike, but not as high as a hardtail mountain bike.
