Based in Boston, Honey Bikes was a natural fit to partner with Dirty 40 Race Productions to promote the first Rasputitsa Spring Classic in Newport, Vermont.
Named after the Russian word for the mud season when the roads thaw and become nearly impassible, the 47-mile Rasputitsa will traverse some of Vermont’s most coldest and most barren landscapes on April 19.
The commemorative bike is a special edition of the Honey All Roads, a do-it-all machine that can tackle rough roads to singletrack. It’s built from steel with Ultegra Di2 shifting and hydraulic disc braking and can fit tires anywhere from 700×28 to 700×40. Some All Road models have even been equipped with 650bx42 wheels and tires. The paint recalls the red, brow and blue of the Rasputitsa and Dirty 40 races and the Hammer and Cycle logo adds a bit of fun to the dark and brooding theme.
As part of the limited edition package, if you order your own Rasputitsa All Roads you can choose from a free set of painted-to-match fenders, three pairs of Clement tires for all conditions, or an entry to the Rasputitsa and Dirty 40 races.
