Wabi bikes are not your everyday bikes that you find at
the local bike shops.
My fixed gear/single speed bikes are road racing bikes
tweaked for fixed/single speed riding, made for riding
long distances quickly and in comfort, and with a
responsiveness that you only get from a high end steel
frame. And I don't mean 4130 cromoly.
What sets the Wabi fixed gear bikes apart from the
others out there is the use of lighter, higher quality
frame tubing (Reynolds 725 and Columbus Spirit, the
lightest steel tube set available), road racing (not track)
design, quality frame builds and light, responsive wheels.
My Lightning RE road racing bike is also a unique offering
in the very high priced, mostly carbon, road bike
market. At under $2000 you get a full Columbus Spirit
frame, carbon fork, and a sub 19lb weight in a steel
What sets Wabi Cycles' business apart is the personalized
customer service. I'm happy to help you with any of
your questions, about my bikes, or even about fixed
gear riding if you haven't tried it.
