FAQ

What does All Road mean? Know more about clearance.
The new F/AR or F/ All-Road works ideally with 32-35 mm, 700c tires for fast rolling on tarmac or well-kept dirt roads. For more grip and protection, you can also mount 35mm low-knob treads like the Panaracer GravelKing Semi-Slick or even a whopping 38 mm slick; this configuration will allow you to ride rocky trails with more comfort and stability.
What about studded tire compatibility for winter riding?
F/AR is also great for commuting on icy roads with up to 33mm studded tires like the Suomi Routa when using fenders and 35 without fenders.
Can I use a 650b x 50mm tire?
No, the F/AR is not compatible with tires wider than 38mm. The F/Gravel is compatible with tires up to 47mm.

Does it automatically come with the 3x Roswheel bags that we see in the pictures? Is it included in the price or do you have to purchase that separately?

You will be able to select these items when you configure your bike but they are free. To qualify for this offer, you need to place your pre-order now and pay the deposit.

I live outside norway. If I ever have an issue with the bike, how does your customer service work? Would I have to ship it to you in Oslo?
Any minor service or maintenance would have to be handled by your local bike shop. This is considered normal maintenance and not included in the price of your bike. They can also process warranty claims on third party components like Shimano and Fulcrum. Should you encounter a failure of a bigger component like frame or fork, and it is deemed to be a valid warranty claim, we would ship you the new component and reimburse you for the costs of repairing the bike at your bike shop of choice. This, fortunately, is extremely rare and one of the reasons why we only sell great bikes.

Can I order the bags alone?
Yes! The new FARA x Roswheel bags will be available for purchase separately from the F/AR.

Will the Fara Cycling bags fit on any type of bike without Fidlock mounts?
Yes! The bags sets include adapters which will allow you to mount our bags on any frame, given they physically fit into the frame. This option will be available on the website shortly.

Warranty?
All Fara Cycling framesets are backed by a 5-year limited warranty.* Please read the Terms and Conditions for more information.

Is my deposit refundable?

Deposit is 100% refundable should you decide to cancel your purchase within 4 weeks following estimated date of delivery. Please read the Terms and Conditions for more information.

When do I choose my frame colour and size?
During the month of June, 2021 you will be given access to finalize the configuration of your F/AR. At this time you will finalize the colour, sizing and full component specification. The balance of payment will also be due at this time. If you are choosing a Frameset Only option you will need to indicate it at this time.

What is the Signature Series design?
The Pre-Order option gives you access to a limited edition Signature Series design. The transparent black paint has been specially developed for the F/AR. It shows the beautiful uni-direction carbon weave and also hides a little surprise that can only be seen in the dark ;-)

Is the preorder limited?
