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

What sets the Wabi fixed gear bikes apart from the

The Lightning RE is inspired
by the classic steel road
racing machines, but this is
not a throw back. With
oversized Columbus Spirit
tubing, a carbon fork and
lightweight wheels, the
Lightning RE offers
performance not possible in
steel framed road racing
bikes from the past, and
with a ride quality only high
end steel can offer. And at
less than $2,000 it's an
affordable way to get into a
high performance road bike.
I just added a new bar option to the fixed gear bikes, a
