Von Hof Cycles launches US-made women-specific road frame

Published October 31, 2016

HOBOKEN, N.J. (BRAIN) — Von Hof Cycles has unveiled the newest addition to its line of small-batch steel frames, the DIA. The DIA frame will retail for $1,950, with complete builds starting at $3,125.

The DIA features Columbus Spirit tubing, a tapered headtube, oversized downtube for increased stiffness, internal cable routing for electronic groups, and 28mm tire clearance. It's available in 44, 48, 51 and 54 cm sizes, designed for women riders 5-foot-5 and shorter.

"I know from personal experience that there aren't a lot of options available for riders of smaller stature, especially when you get beyond the custom builders," said Diana Parmer, co-founder and co-owner of Von Hof Cycles. "For anyone who's ever struggled to find the perfect fit for their road bike without sacrificing responsiveness, this bike is for you."

Andrew Reimann, general manager at Von Hof, said, "The DIA allows us to offer the same high-quality, forward-thinking features as our current steel road frame. This bike can do it all — it's fun for a full day in the saddle, more than capable in a road race and even fit for adventures on gravel and cobbles."

The frames are handmade in New Paltz, New York, and assembled at Von Hof's retail shop at the Monroe Center in Hoboken, New Jersey. The DIA is available in black and blue or black with orange/yellow graphics, a result of Von Hof's recent collaboration with Franklyn Design Studio.

More information and photos are available online at Von Hof Cycles. Von Hof will display at the upcoming Philly Bike Expo from Nov. 5-6.
