Quiver Road Frameset - Retired

4   |  
  • *The original Quiver has been retired now that we've launched our new Quiver models. The new Quiver 2016 Quiver Disc and Quiver Canti are in stock and available to order now.

    What's in your Quiver? This question is typically asked to the rider that has a bike for every mood. Fixed, geared, commuter, road, MTB, fat bike... While the idea of owning a bike for every day of the week sounds great, it costs a TON of money to buy and maintain that many bikes.

    When we sat down to develop our first commuter and road frame we wanted to build an ultra versatile platform that could meet the needs of many different urban riders and ideally, could be modified over time based on your individual preferences or even seasonally. With that in mind, we put together a list of the things that we'd love to see in such a versatile frame and went to work on designing what we eventually called, the Quiver.

    The Quiver frame is an ultra flexible steel road and commuter platform that looks just as at home on a country gravel road as it does commuting through town. What makes the Quiver unique is that we designed it with horizontal dropouts, removable derailleur hanger and removable cable stops and 132.5 rear spacing. This means that the Quiver looks just as good built up as an ultra clean single speed as it does as a 2x10 steel road bike. Whether you are looking for a single speed, internally geared or prefer to run a cassette, the Quiver has you covered.

    Being based here in Milwaukee we've had plenty of experience riding in an urban environment with road conditions that seem to change moods daily. With that in mind, we built the Quiver so that it could fit up to a 47c tire giving it plenty of room for wide commuter tires, studded winter tires or even knobby cyclocross tires. Winter has a way of wreaking havoc on steel frames which is why we also added an ED coat on the inside and outside of the frame which acts as a rust inhibitor for those salty midwest roads. Finally, by using 132.5mm rear spacing the Quiver is capable of using any rear hub with spacing between 130mm and 135mm making it compatible with anything from an internal 8 speed to a wider bike cassette.

    The Quiver is a great frameset for building up a bike that truly suits your individual needs. Made out of straight gauge 4130 chromoly steel and priced at only $299.00 for frame and fork, the Quiver is durable, reliable and most importantly affordable!

    Q: The Quiver has horizontal dropouts, but can it fit a derailuer?
    A: Yes, we designed a slide in hanger to mount a derailuer to the rear of the frame. The Quiver also has cable guides for both front and rear derailuers. You can build it up as a single speed, with internal gear hub, as a 1x or 2x.

    Q: Are the cable stops removeable on the Quiver?
    A: Yes. All the cable stops are removeable using a hex wrench. You can run the frame as a single speed and remove all the derailuer cable stops for a clean look.

    Q: What does the Quiver frameset weigh?
    A: The Quiver frameset weighs a combined 7lbs. If you're looking to use a different fork the frame is 5lbs and the fork is 2lbs.

Best modular frame hands down.

This frame is the pinacle of versatility. I wanted to find a bike that could replace my van dessel, country road bob and this frame definitely exceeded my expectations.

Great looking frame

I built a single speed commuter using this frame with some bull-horn handle-bars. The bike is great zipping through traffic and seems really sturdy. My favourite steed at the moment. Shipping only took a week to get here (to New Zealand), so no complaints! Customer service also prompt and helpful - would buy again.

Handles great, tons of tire clearance

I was looking for a steel gravel frameset that could be run as a singlespeed or geared 1x10. Either set-up is easy to do, and there's enough room in the horizontal drops to let you run different cogs without having to change the length of the chain. The biggest things for me are the ability to run huge tires (up to essentially a 29x1.8) and stability through the long wheelbase. Gravel descents aren't somewhere you want the bike to get squirrely, and the Quiver stays planted. Overall, the steel feels very forgiving, but also keeps the bike stiff enough for sprints. Usually, lower-cost steel is either really flexible or extremely stiff and uncomfortable, but they seem to have reached a good compromise. Only cons I can think of: using a 30.0mm seatpost clamp makes it difficult to find replacements, should you ever want to (a 31.8mm would have been better), and seeing as it can be used as a long-distance adventure bike with racks, a third set of bottle cage bosses under the downtube would have been handy, especially since you don't see them on many bikes. You can always clamp some on, but including them would have been nice. I'd also like to see a full carbon fork upgrade available for anyone wanting to shave weight off the front end. I can't comment on shipping, because I ordered mine during the port strikes/riots, so it got held up for awhile. However, emails were always answered very quickly, so I got that cleared up.

Solid and Functional

I purchased the Quiver frame set late in 2013. It arrived quickly and well packaged. I built it up as a light touring/commuting bike and it's been great. It made it down the Oregon Coast and into the Redwoods in 2014 without a problem. Nimble, but felt fine loaded down as well. The "Silver" paint job turned out to be much bluer than I expected, which I like. My only complaints are relatively small. The frame shows more nicks and marks than my other bike. I don't know if this is due to the paint job durability being poor or because it has a dark undercoat that shows through where the frame has been worn. I also find the removable derailleur hanger a pain to re-install after removing the rear wheel. The tension of the derailleur makes is difficult to line up with the dropouts, and the fact that the quick release spindle needs to be removed as well makes for a messy and sometimes frustrating process. That being said, I'm happy with the bike overall, happy with its durability and would recommend the Quiver to anyone looking for a solid versatile (and affordable!) frame.
