Lone Bicycles Announce New 2021 Parabellum Frame

Lone Bicycles is proud to announce the launch of the 2021 Parabellum frame! An update of the model introduced last year and a small novelty are on track for next year.

First, our Parabellum frame will be proposed in a new matt bluish tint and shiny black stickers kit. The downtube shape is improved to fit with a “fidlock” cage system in order to put a bottle up to 450ml.

Lone Bicycles maintains the unique modularity of its frame thanks to the N.a.s.T. (Nique All System Technology). This innovation allows our frame to be compatible with the 3 main wheel standards from the market (27.5 , 27.5+ or 29) without changing their geometry. (More information available on our website)

Second news for 2021: the birth of a new specific size called «MixED». This is a more aggressive version of our Parabellum located between the L and XL sizes. This geometry has been specially developed for the mullet standard (29 « front wheel and 27.5» rear wheel) but it also suits for a 29» setting. Th MixED size will keep all the other assets of the Parabellum and will be delivered in an exclusive hand-polished then varnished RAW finish.

The MixED frame (with all the accessories including the saddle clamp, axle etc …) is advertised at 3,6 kilos.

For all Parabellum frame size/models it will still be possible to

  • adjust the chainstay length by 20mm
  • choose an internal or external cable routing
  • install a standard or metric rear shock

As most of the companies, Lone Bicycles is not immune to the health crisis and its economic consequences. But we strive hard every day to reply to your requests and deliver in short timing with the expected quality. At the same time, we are pushing our developments and tests in order to offer new innovative products.

As a rider owned small company Lone bicycles do not have the same economic strength as big groups and we are suffering from this difficult context. In this particular and unprecedented period, we must be careful not to take decisions and take actions that could jeopardize the future of our brand. This is why we took the decision to set up a pre-order system.

We recognize the extended delivery time due to strong and unplanned growth of the bike market which led to delay of our frame manufacturer availability in 2020. We apologize for this in advance and thank you for your confidence and support. We, therefore, invite you to pre-order your 2021 Parabellum frame on our site. It will help us continue our common adventure with more great surprises to come. Pre-orders are available on the HxR Components website (delivery on 2021 March / April)

Description

The idea of this unique bike comes from an observation Many consumers are looking for a bike to do everything and the proliferation of ‘’ standards ‘’ complicates the market and its reading. To address these issues, Lone Bicycles offers a revolutionary solution: A unique frame, compatible with the 3 main models of wheels 27,5, 27,5+ or 29 without changing the geometry of the bike.

This magic trick is possible thanks to the brand’s unique N.A.S.T (Nique All System Technology) system. The bike has an eccentric mechanism in the bottom bracket allowing changing its height: a high position (27.5) and a low position (29). Simply loosen two screws to release the system, turn the assembly by hand until it stops and tightens again. The bike is transformed without changing the geometry. It is also possible to adjust the length of the rear bases to 20 mm. Depending on the shock absorber used: standard or metric, the Parabellum develops 153 to 165 mm of travel.

The frame (with all accessories like saddle collar, axle etc …) is announced at 3.6 kilos. For the passage of sheaths, Lone gives you the choice, internal or external. All the development, design and testing are done in France. The frame is handmade with high quality production and specifications in the best factories in Taiwan.
