As I see you have two similar bikes yet with different geo, I was curious, is it possible to modify the riding position on the Wolvie from relaxed to more aggressive?

I'm planning to build an all-rounder and I was curious what are Wolverine's limits when it comes to making it a road(-ish) bike...

The wolverine handles well without any luggage as the trail isn't the lowest so you can definitely use it as a road bike as well. You can even fit someting like Jack Brown Blue 33mm like I have in the orlowski for a sweet and supple ride with fenders if you so wish.

I'd say the biggest problem might be the aesthetics of narrow road tyres with that tyre clearance but that's subjective ofc. :D

I'd say go for it since you can have many options with wolverine if you wish to change from one to another - value that many cheap-ish frames can offer. Just make sure you don't cut the steerer too short for touring etc.

What's the ad-hoc light bracket made from? Looks a bit like a p-clip.

Yep, it's some sort of a pipe clamp

have since replaced it with a nitto bracket that attaches to the strut and is fantastic.

I see so many Wolverines with spacer towers, it's great to finally see someone use the VO stem with it! Question, why the Soma when you already have the Orlowski, they look pretty similarly built right now.

that's a good question and one that many others have asked aswell since they both have gears, drop bars and other similar features.

orlo has changed from those photos a bit and i mainly use it in and between cities as a commuter and errand whatnot bike. i have a porteur rack on it now and with ile rack back i can carry a lot of stuff at the front.

the riding position is much more aggressive than of wolverine's and the gearing is also much different as the 44/11-28 is much more suitet to the fast city riding whereas wolverines main point is to offer gearing for slower, loaded riding with possibility to go off road as well. the riding position is much more relaxed than orlo's and it feel more like a granny commuter bike. however with my relatively long legs i always will have saddle to bar drop apparently and even with a tall stack stem(will switch from VO to another soon) it seems.

what wolverine also offers is different type of attachment points in the frame and the fork which is also a factor in separating these two bikes functions from one another.

So mainly use them for different things and will try to advance them both in their own directions even further.
