Ocean Air Cycles Rambler - Sport Touring Bicycle Revitalized [Kickstarter]



The Rambler is our flagship sport touring bicycle model, coming in three colors, with a special 4th color 'Founders Orange' for this program- all made in the USA. A true sport touring bicycle rooted in traditional French style, with modern design and hand-made in Portland, OR.  A road bike by definition, but not a “racing” bike. The lightweight steel frame is responsive yet provides the stability and handling that delivers comfort mile after mile, whether you are on a cruise to the post office or back to back weekend century rides, the Rambler can be your go-fast bike and still carry home the groceries.

Is the Rambler the right bike for you?

Have you been looking to get a bike that bridges transportation and sport?  Transportation does not  have to be a mini van, you can still have a sporty ride with clean styling, great handling and a carry modest load.  You like bikes that have a traditional look and styling, possibly a preference for traditional french styling from the 40′s and 50′s, with your daily load up front on a rack where you can keep an eye on it and easily get to it without climbing off the bike. Then the Rambler is the right bike for you.
With years of personal research and design study I have addressed these issues with the Rambler, a bike steeped in the lineage of the traditional French touring bikes.  Using modern production techniques and partnering with a U.S. fabrication team to deliver the look and function you want, with a few bells and whistles thrown in.  
The ride will be light and sporty, yet stable with loads for your commute, day rides or the occasional quick load of groceries up front.  It goes without saying there will be provisions for full coverage fenders to keep you and the bike clean for year round riding.  This is the bike you will want for rambles through the countryside, distance rides and randonees, and still be your daily steed.
The basic Rambler package consists of the hand made 4130 steel frame and fork with Paul Racer Brakes mounted on brazed on bosses.  You have choice of color: Sunflower, U.S. Blue, Rexford Red, and a limited run of Founder's Orange for this Kickstarter Program.
