Grovel V2 FAQ's

Q - Can I bring my own groupset and/or build kit (full or partial) to Curve or a Curve dealer to complete my build?

A - Yes. No worries. We or a Curve dealer can help guide you through the process from start to finish.

Q - What happened to the slider dropouts? They were rad!

A - We know! Due to majority rule we decided to replace them with a breezer style dropout. Slider dropouts added considerable weight and cost to the frame and were rendered superfluous due to most Grovel V1 owners whacking gears on their builds. A potential super LTD. release may be an option with enough genuine interest.

Q - What is Trans Black?

A - Transparent Black. This coating is a mix of black paint and clearcoat that becomes see through. You can see the steel grain and welds through the black tint. 

Q - Can I run flat bars on my Grovel V2?

A - Yes. But you will have to up size. If you normally ride a 56 use the 58 frame.
