Review: Rawland Ulv
In this video we hop on one of the most hotly anticipated bikes of 2017 – the Rawland Ulv. The Ulv is a genre busting bike that combines randonneuring, light touring and bikepacking all in one bike! We went to the announcement party of the Ulv almost a year ago and they have literally just landed at Velocult in Portland. They are a small production run, but we were lucky enough to throw a leg over one for a few hours to give you guys our ride impressions. Check out the video or if you’d rather read, here’s our executive summary.
-Surprisingly lively ride for a bike that looks like a tank
-Low trail geometry makes riding with a front load stable even on rough terrain
-Dual wheel size, allows you to tailor your tires and wheel size for the terrain
-Eyelets for a rear rack, Anything Cage, traditional low rider and rando/porteur racks
-No toe overlap even in smallest frame size (54)
-650+ tires can be a slog on extended pavement riding
-No front derailleur mount
-Very limited supply of frames
