We’re pleased to welcome the most recent sponsor to join the EV family, Velo Orange. We’ve been big VO fans for a while now, so we’re super excited to have them on-board! Look for their banner in the sidebar at right.
Velo Orange is a great little company that specializes in sourcing and producing hard to find items for the cyclo-tourist, randonneur, and commuter/utility bicyclist. Along with their broad selection of unique components and accessories, they also offer a series of attractive, traditionally proportioned chromoly steel frames. We really like their stuff!
From Velo Orange:
Most cyclists don’t race, yet they ride uncomfortable racing bikes and try to go too fast and so miss much of the world around them. Our emphasis is on a more relaxed and comfortable style of riding, and on refined bikes that are comfortable on a century ride, an inn-to-inn tour, or even on a ramble down your favorite dirt road.
For many years some of the wonderful parts and accessories once produced by small firms in Europe for the cyclo-tourist and randonneur have been unavailable, or outrageously expensive. So I started Velo Orange to find and sell these remaining items, and to produce those that were no longer available.
Please understand that Velo Orange is an unusual business as I started it not for mercenary reasons, but to fill a special need. So I’ll always welcome, and even ask for, any suggestions for new products and ideas for improving our existing offerings
As we evolve, we’ll continue to add new products each week; please keep checking back.I n the meantime, why not put your camera, jacket, and wallet in the handlebar bag and go out for a whole day or weekend in the country? Stop at a nice inn and have lunch, chat with the local farmers, drop by an art studio, winery, or bakery. Or ride out to our showroom in historic Annapolis, Maryland.
