The Broam frame is constructed of lightweight, butted and hydroformed aluminum tubing with internally routed cables to keep everything functionally and aesthetically clean.
Up front the carbon fiber fork provides road vibration dampening and the aluminum steerer tube is the current standard: tapered, with a 1.125″ bearing at the top and a 1.5″ bearing at the bottom to maximize lateral stiffness.
All Broam series frames include mounts for rear racks, front and rear fenders, three water bottle cages and a top tube bag. You can carry some gear.
The shifters and derailleurs are 20 speed Shimano Tiagra and the brakes are Tektro Hybrid HYRD cable actuated hydraulic disc brakes, the most powerful cable actuated disc brakes on the market.
The crankset is a FSA Omega with a subcompact 46/30 chainring combination and the cassette range is Shimano 10 speed 11-34.
The resulting 30/34 ratio lowest gear is actually lower than a triple crank touring bike gear. You can climb the steepest hills with the Broam, even loaded with gear.
The remainder of the components are Devox by Felt. The seatpost, stem and handlebars are aluminum. The wheels are tubeless ready and the tires are 700x40 puncture resistant Maxxis Refuse multi-surface.
