The bike you ride should take you from your doorstep and back again, whatever the terrain and whatever the weather. OLSEN Bicycles have been developed for off-road adventures anywhere in the world, but are not so specialist that you can’t ride to the school run or the shops.
We have spent 2020 and 21 designing everyday versatile hard-tail bikes that you can take on the toughest rides. We have designed our frames around the type of riding that suits your needs, whether that’s mountain biking, city commuting or a hybrid.
Versatility is key to our range, with our frames fitting as many different tyre sizes as possible to handle your style of riding across whatever terrain you want to ride. If you are in the Alps then our frames can be built up as a long travel hard tail with 150mm Forks. If you like global bikepacking then our bikes can run rigid forks.
We believe in riding in any weather and all weather, so component reliability is of utmost importance. All of our new bikes have derailleur hangers, with a built-in backup should things go wrong in the middle of nowhere. OLSEN frames can be changed to singlespeed, but also accommodate different gear options, such as Gates Carbondrive, Rohloffs Speedhub, Kindernay hub gear and Shimano Alfine 8 or 11 internal hub gears. OLSEN also have frames designed to fit Pinion and Effigear gearboxes.
At OLSEN Bicycles we believe in simplicity, versatility and long distance riding, whether off-road or on-road. We are about touring, roughstuff, and pass-storming. Whether you ride Singlespeed, fixed gear, Derailleur, Belt-drive, internal hub gear or gearbox, Push a Bike, Hike-a-Bike, what ever you choose, with OLSEN bikes you will be ready to go further and explore. Suspension forks and Derailleurs are on long lead times, at the moment, so we are selling all of our bikes as single-speed with carbon forks. Our wheels have Shimano HG-11 freewheel cassettes, this means that you have a rolling chassis ready for a derailleur or internal gear hub upgrade.
