Although the Velo Orange Neutrino is an urban commuter bike at heart, it has received some adventure-worthy updates over the years that have led Neutrino fans on some pretty epic rides. Despite its 20″ wheels, the Neutrino is plastered with all kinds of different mounting options, has sliding quick-release dropouts, and has clearance for 2.3″ tires (with fenders!). All of that, plus a burly 4130 double-butted chromoly steel frame and fork and three sizes to fit most people out there.
Velo Orange just announced a restock of the Neutrino, which now also includes internal dropper post routing for riders looking to get rad on the way to work or on their next local overnighter. Like on many of their other offerings, a small tube is brazed into the downtube, allowing for easy housing installation. Plus, those not running a dropper post can use this routing for a clean rear brake setup. The latest Neutrino comes in a Pistachio paint job with a reflective silver decal, which we think looks pretty great.
