The Crust Nor’Easter has returned with updated paint and graphics, and it’s now offered with your choice of disc brakes or cantilever brakes. Check it out here…

The Crust Nor’Easter combines the tubeset of their Romanceür with the generous tire clearance of the Evasion. As Crust puts it, the Nor’Easter is, “…perfectly suited for going out for a couple of day jaunt with everything you will need for a whimsical time, but with the cushy tire clearances of an Evasion.” It’s based around a Chromoly steel frame, big 27.5″ tires, and has all the standard mounting points for loading up racks and bags. The disc version is meant to be 1x specific, and the Canti version can be set up 1x or with a square taper double.

While tire clearances and compatibility differ slightly between frame sizes and brake types, most can fit 27.5 x 2.8″ with options to run big 26″ and 29″ tires as well. The disc Nor’Easter uses (and includes) front and rear thru-axles, while the Canti model uses standard quick-release axles. Crust is trying out dimple-less chainstays on the 62cm Disc model to increase strength and reduce flex, resulting in slightly less tire clearance.
