Honey Weather Bike Series Design Details
- Lots of tire and fender clearance: Steel fork designed for lots of tire and fender clearance. The rear end of the Weather is equally designed.
- 25c tires installed—with room for up to 32c tires.
- Fender mounts front and rear. The Weather doesn’t come with fenders but it’s happy with them if you want to add them.
- Long-reach brakes allow for big tires and fenders together.
- Honey components Handlebar, stem, and seat post are all superlight 3D forged—for highest strength and lightest weight aluminum parts possible.
- 12 sizes to fit just about anyone.
- 1 cm top tube length increments enable you to choose between a few frame sizes, to fine-tune your fit and comfort.
- A bit more upright and a slightly shorter reach position than the Honey Race design—because you’re probably wearing more—warmer—clothing and, well, you may not be quite as fit as you are in the peak of the race season. And, this isn’t a race bike; it’s a training bike.
Weather Handling & Performance
- Stability without being sluggish: A longer wheelbase—chainstay and front center length—for more stability in windy, wet, or icy conditions.
- Very predictable rider input and feel: Weather’s thoughtfully executed frame tubing provides precise response to rider input and more surefooted handling in wet, sandy, or icy conditions.
- Frame size-specific tubing: This ensures the best possible handling at the lowest possible frame weight. Each tube is butted in-house for each size of each model. The Weather has a similar stoutness as the Honey Race—similar performance and with a bit more vertical compliance.
- Smooth and tough: Designing the bike for larger tires helps smooth out rough off-season roads.
- Excellent traction: The Honey seat stays and steel fork provide improved traction over any road surface.
