The Colossal is our Adventure by Bike™ motto lived out through paved and mixed surface road riding. It’s the bike that inspires confidence to achieve that long ride you’ve always wanted to take on, to connect a huge series of roads together to make a really cool loop, or to do a multi-day road bikepacking adventure that truly allows you to escape. For model year 2015 we’ve made some great updates that make the Colossal an even more capable all-roads machine.
The 2015 Colossal has increased tire clearance, capable of handling 700c x 30mm tires or 700c x 28mm tires with fenders. That’s right…I said fenders (more on that in a moment). These larger tires really add tremendous mixed surface riding potential; more rubber on rougher, less predictable surfaces.
While increasing tire clearance, there are other changes to the rear ends of the 2015 Colossal bike.
Our CroMoly Colossal 2 frame continues to use a hooded-style 10 x 135mm quick-release dropout, but we’ve also added our new threaded hidden fender mounts to it.
We’ve also worked with our manufacturer to design our own carbon layup to achieve the vertical and lateral deflection/compliance we wanted for the Colossal Carbon Fork. This is important because it has let us create a fork with the ride quality that we feel is appropriate for both the titanium and steel Colossal frames.
To complete our front end updates, our Colossal Carbon Fork uses at 15 x 100mm DT Swiss thru-axle. Combining all these features (1-1/8 to 1-1/4” tapered steerer, Salsa carbon layup, and thru-axle) results in a fantastic fork with the perfect Colossal ride quality.
