Classic Tech Specs

Wabi Classic component listing (see below for more tech info on frames):cls-component3.png

The Classic features traditional butted steel frame tubing using heat treated, oversized* Reynolds 725 chrome molybdenum steel. Each frame is hand tig welded, and all aspects of the alignment are checked before any frame leaves the factory. The fork features butted cro-moly steel blades, brazed to an investment cast crown. Fork tips and rear drops are precision investment cast steel, and the seat post clamp is an integrated brazed type.

There are two critical aspects of frame design: cockpit design (rider fit, where the rider connects to the bike and where these points are in relation to each other) and steering/handling. We design the frames here, in-house, to ensure the desired characteristics. The seat tube angle, top tube length, and stem height and length are the key elements to consider for correct rider fit. Then, for handling, stability, and agility are both considered—too stable and the steering is heavy; too quick and the bike is twitchy and more difficult to control, especially at slower speeds. Richard, our founder, designed the Classic using traditional road racing geometry with tweaks for fixed gear riding.

Samples are built for stress testing on a machine. Wabi frames are built to the most rigid standard, the EN—the current European standard. This is your assurance of the quality and structural integrity of each Wabi Cycles frame.

The Classic is not just another steel frame—the quality of tubing, design, and manufacturing combine to create the traditional ride that the best steel frames are known for. We believe the Wabi Classic will amaze you, both with its beautiful workmanship and its plush ride.

 

*Traditional steel frames use 25.4mm diameter TT, 28.6mm ST and DT. Oversized uses 28.6 TT and 31.75 DT. ST remains the same.
