Frame Geometry Notes

Toe overlap:  Because the MidDurance sometimes has fenders and big tires, many of the sizes will have some toe overlap.  Make sure you are comfortable with this before ordering.  Questions?  Contact the Beekeepers.

Bike size: Top tube length combined with head tube length are better indicators of bike fit than the classic “seat tube length.”

** Standover clearance:  We measure standover height from the ground to the midpoint of the top tube.

General Geometry Notes

  • All specifications are in centimeters unless otherwise indicated.
  • Specifications based on 30mm tire.
  • "Frame reach" is not a particularly effective measurement for determining correct frame size.  In fact, the term "frame reach" is deceptive, given what it's actually measures.  Top tube length and frame stack are much more helpful for choosing the right bike size.  We include 'frame stack' because people ask about it all the time.  However, be wary of choosing a bike's size based on frame stack.
  • Specification changes occur often because of ongoing component improvements and industry standards.  If you have critical measurements for your cycling enjoyment, let the Beekeepers know before placing your order.

Frame Feature Notes

  • Wheel diameter:  700c/622mm -- these are the same size.
    • Tire, maximum size:  33mm slick, 32mm knobby, 30mm studded
    • Tire, optimal size:  30mm slick
    • Tire, maximum size with fenders:  30mm slick
    • Note:  Tires often vary in claimed measurements versus actual measured size.  Rim width also affects actual tire width.  Therefore, some tires will fit better than others.
  • The Honey chainstay design fits up to 52/36t mid-compact crankset but the bike comes with a 50/34t compact crankset.
  • Fender mounts:  On dropouts, in chainstay bridge and seatstay bridge.
  • Rack mounts:  None.  However, the frame is rack worthy and you can install a rack on this bike.  Read about the MidDurance's rack use limitations on the main page under the Frame Features section.  The frame's warranty is void if you use a rack outside of the specified parameters.
  • Three bottle mounts:  One on seat tube, one on top of the down tube, one under the down tube near the bottom bracket.
  • Decal options:  Blasted or gray reflective
  • Head tube diameter:  1-1/8" steerer on frame with 54.5 cm top tubes and shorter.  1.5" tapered steerer on frames with 55.5 cm top tubes and longer, for fork characteristic optimization.
  • Seat post diameter:  27.2mm
  • Front derailleur clamp diameter:  31.8mm
  • Rear axle spacing:  130mm quick release
  • Brake mount:  Medium-reach caliper brake
  • Cable routing:
    • Rear brake:  Cable stops on the top tube at 7:30 o'clock.
    • Front derailleur:  Cable stop on down tube.  
    • Rear derailleur:  Cable stops on down tube and chainstay.

Fork Features

  • Honey carbon fork, matte black
  • Fits tires up to:  700c/622mm -- these are the same size.
    • Tire, maximum size:  33mm slick, 32mm knobby, 30mm studded
    • Tire, optimal size:  30mm slick
    • Tire, maximum size with fenders:  30mm slick
    • Note:  Tires often vary in claimed measurements versus actual measured size.  Rim width also affects actual tire width.  Therefore, some tires will fit better than others.
  • Fender mounts:  Includes integrated fender mounts.
  • Rack mounts:  None.  This fork is not designed for loaded panniers.  Do not install a rack on this fork.  This would void the fork warranty.
  • Fork steerer:  1-1/8" headset on frames with 54.5 cm top tubes and shorter.  1.5" tapered steerer on frames with 55.5 cm top tubes and longer, for fork characteristic optimization.
  • 1.5" steerer for 44mm headset
  • Brake mount:  Medium-reach caliper
  • Axle type:  100mm quick release
