Dual-Wheel Compatibility & Tire Clearance
Different wheel sizes give you the freedom to run whatever size or type of tire you wish. That’s why we made the Broam compatible with both 650b and 700c wheel sizes. The Broam comes standard with 700c hoops, the traditional size for road bikes. They can accommodate up to 45mm-wide tires, giving you the versatility to select your optimal rubber for whatever route you have in mind. If you opt to switch out your stock wheels for a set of 650 alternatives, you can fit tires that are up to 2.1 inches wide.
Sleek Storage & Versatility
Long days in the saddle—and especially multi-day tours through parts unknown— will require extra supplies. The Broam features a mounting location along the top tube for installing a “bento box” storage bag. The Broam also comes with a fender hardware kit in order to mount the majority of rain-combatting options on the market. It also features cleverly hidden rack mounts for both utility and sleek aesthetics. Simple integration means that when it’s time to ditch the baggage and race your buddies along the pavement or gravel, the Broam is ready—like a superhero shedding its street clothes to speed off and save the day.
Disc Brakes & Thru-Axles
Disc brakes are the new standard for drop-handlebar bikes in all riding conditions. They provide more stopping power, greater modulation, and more consistent performance than rim brakes, especially when the weather turns nasty. Complementing the Broam’s disc brakes are 12mm thru-axles, which provide a more secure interface over traditional quick-release skewers, along with better stiffness for quicker acceleration, better handling, and crisper shifting. Maximum control over any terrain, all day long. That’s what the Broam is about.
