Blue Train

Triple butted steel Drop Bar gravel and touring bike.
Locomotive Cycles Blue Train 650b

Steam steel series

The Blue Train’s 4130 steel tubing series was designed specifically for this model. The individual tubes are thinned both internally and externally, oriented with a 40/30 elliptical structure in the bottom bracket area to increase resistance to twisting. Different diameters and thicknesses for each single size helps to obtain an equal response in both small and large size frames. The special yoke behind the very stiff bottom bracket maximizes the space available for large tires.

Adopt 2 wheel standards to choose your game.

Gravel Bike but with versatility: you can choose whether to use 700C or 650b wheels to have the best of both worlds of Gravel. For a smooth journey you can mount cyclocross-style wheels and have a smoothness comparable to a racing bike. For a bumpy trip with a lot of off-roading, you can use wider wheels with a greater volume of air, but at the same time a slightly smaller diameter for a lower center of gravity that allows you to tackle more technical and bumpy routes with greater safety.

Blue Train, 2 sets, gravel and travel

We also offer a Locomotive Blue Train build, which is the Gravel 700c vision of the Locomotive brand. The bike has variable bottom bracket geometry like the other frames and a fork with variable rake settings and flat-mount caliper mounts. The bike is painted with a metallic finish that changes tone according to the light between dark green and intense blue.

The frame uses triple butted STEAM® Locomotive tube set, with toptube that has external butting on the head tube end and an elliptical downtube oriented transversely on the bottom bracket side.

The frame is available in two configurations: Blue Train C and Blue Train S.

  •     Blue Train C models have a carbon fork with double rake adjustment between 47 and 52mm, and they will be equipped with the eccentric system for adjusting the geometry at the bottom bracket like the Westlander and Scotsman. This is the ideal model for pure gravel, weekend rides, and medium and long distance events, with 700C or 650b knobby tires. It’s also available as a singlespeed for a mud-proof locomotive.
  •     Blue Train S will have a proprietary steel fork intended for bike packing use. The bottom bracket geometry adjustment system will be available as an option. It is the travel version that you can equip with any type of bag for adventures lasting a week or a few months.

The first production batch is available in 4 sizes: 52, 54, 56, 58. Sizes 50 and 60 will be added later.

Breezer style dropouts

Blue Train adopts both replaceable dropouts and thanks to the front eccentric it is possible to adjust the height of the bottom bracket and the length of the carriage. The brake mounts are in ‘Flat Mount’ standard. There are circular attachments above the dropout, designed for mounting a mudguard and luggage rack at the same time. The welding system of the dropouts, inspired by ‘Breezer’, significantly increases the rigidity of the dropout and seat stay assembly. Although it does not have the versatility and modularity of the other models, the Blue Train offers several rare features in the world of gravel and bikepacking, and it fits well with the Locomotive philosophy.
