Pictures coming soon!
We're calling this a 2019 model, and here's why. The newest edition of our Wolverine commuter housebuild, which we call the Daily Grinder, gets major upgrades yet costs around $500 less than the best 2017/2018 Wolverine Daily Grinder:
-The new V3 Wolverine frame with redesigned rear dropouts and new colors (red and pearl black), handbuilt with Tange Prestige cromoly
-Alfine 11 internally geared hub with your choice of 50/22 gearing (ideal for high speeds and flatter terrain) or lighter 50/24 gearing (better for climbing). Previous editions used the Alfine 8 hub.
-A Shimano dynamo hub powering Supernova premium lights
-Schwalbe Marathon Racer 700x32 tires, for excellent puncture protection and grip in a fast-rolling, long-lasting compound
-Ergon brand ergonomic grips
-Lighter, stiffer rims
-Full-coverage alloy Velo Orange fenders
-Abus NutFix security bolts for both wheels
-Brooks Cambium All-Weather saddle (C15, C17, or C19)
We're also carrying over the best features from the previous edition:
-Gates belt drive
-Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
-Your choice of flat or semi-sweptback handlebars
-Your choice of a traditional lugged steel fork or Soma's All-Road carbon fork (with a price differential)
-A Tubus Racktime rack
If you'd rather have one of the previous Wolverine colors (pumpkin orange or flat black) on a V2 or V2.1 frame, we can do that if you ask nicely and, more importantly, if we still have your size. Just ask.
