After six years on the original, it’s time for Twin Six to update the Standard Rando. While the original was more than up to the task and provided a versatile frame for a number of builds, Standard Rando 2.0 brings the bike up to speed with modern fitments, new dropouts, more mounts, and a few other updates.
Both forks include a set of three pack mounts on each leg, fender mounts, flat mount disc brakes, and 12 x 100 thru axles. The steel fork also adds front rack mounts to the mix. Note that the frame can now handle tapered steerers thanks to the addition of a 44mm headtube. Twin Six continues with their wishbone seat stay design and a unicrown steel fork to match.
Speaking of mounts, 55mm frames and larger include three main water bottle mounts plus a mount underneath the downtube.
Color matched fenders are an option, as are classic black. With the fenders mounted, you’ll have clearance for 700c x 35mm or 650b x 47mm tires.
Without fenders, the frame will clear 700c x 43mm or 650b x 48mm tires for a number of different build options.
T6 Middle Finger Dropouts
At the back of the bike, the new T6 Middle Finger dropout system includes flat mount brakes and a 12 x 142mm thru axle and replaceable derailleur hanger.
Cable routing is full length and externally run with bolt-on downtube clips to keep the housing in check.
The bottom bracket remains a 46 x 68mm PF30.
The Standard Rando 2.0 will be offered in six sizes from 47cm to 59cm.
Available as a frameset or complete build and in Saffron or Extra Black, the framesets start at $700 – though for the next few days, they’re $100 off if you pre-order a frame. Until Friday the 15th, framesets will start at $600 and will ship in early June.
Complete builds will be offered in the form of their House Build in both Saffron and Extra Black. These start at $1,950 with the option for select upgrades. However, just like the framesets, Twin Six is offering a discount for pre-orders until Friday. This time, it’s $150 off for the complete build, bringing the starting price to $1,800. Complete builds will start to ship in mid-June.
