The N-2 takes design elements from the N-1 and pushes the great british weather concept further. A low chainstay and Salsa Alternator dropouts take the N-2 into areas of Singlespeed, Sturmey Archer, Alfine, Kindernay and Rohloff hubs before even thinking about derailleurs. The N-2 has also been designed around 2 tyre sizes. Both 29 x 2.4" and 27.5 x 3.0" (plus sized) tyres without affecting the handling. This design uses the benefits of carbon monocoque construction, sharing the same geometry as the N-1. There is also a Pinion option and the dropouts are split to accommodate Gates Carbon Drive belts.

With more tyre clearance this frame fits FAT 26'x4.0" and 27.5'x3.8" tyres. Each Olsen Frame can be changed by you the customer.  The "base geometry" design is a culmination of all the years designing and modifying geometries.  This frameset has a long reach and long chainstays for a stable ride.  Suiting both 26++ & 27.5++ wheels and tyres on 55-90mm rims.   This frameset comes with the Pinion C-Line Gearbox and 104BCD spiders with 39T:39T sprockets and a 120T carbondrive belt.
All Pinion cables are run internally for the complete uncluttered look, and easier to clean.
