Seattle artist and tattooist Kyler Martz has been working with fellow local framebuilder Maxwell Kullaway of 333fab on a new project, Max’s first stock-sized production bike: the ‘AirLandSea’ Cascadian Rambler, and it looks a whole tank-full-of fun.

If you’ve never heard of the Cascadia movement, now would be a good time to read up about it, because it would place the AirLandSea Rambler in greater context. Kyler’s artwork makes a strong cultural statement about the movement’s importance.

Max’s AirLandSea project does, too: it’s the summary of everything that’s good about exploring nature on a bicycle, and it’s well-designed to make the most of everything that’s available to the modern cycling explorer.

Ecological and political philosophizing aside, let’s get down to the raw steel: Max has engineered a production run of frames created specifically for traversing the “rough tarmac, gravel, dirt roads, and trails typical of the Pacific North West”.

The frame is designed with the ability to switch between a low-trail, steel, touring style fork for front-loaded touring, and all-road/gravel racing with the simple switch of the fork to a carbon model.

The fork can fit a fender with 27.5″/650b x 2.25″ tires, and is spec’d for a 1x drivetrain, although a 2x drivetrain is also possible. There’s also a matching Swift Industries Ozette bag available in Buffalo Plaid.

The Ozette will work especially well with the proprietary 333fab decaleur, which Max makes and is fully adjustable for different reach requirements. The perfect combination for overnight and short-range camping.

The AirLandSea project is a worthwhile investment and, with a 3-color fade paint scheme and Kyler Martz artwork, it’ll be a fun one, too. Head to the 333fab website for more information.
