For the serious cyclists out there that know exactly what they want we have made it easy to customize a Wabi Classic.
At well under 19 lbs, the Classic is a bike that combines the benefit of lighter weight with the unmatched ride quality of lightweight steel. How is the Classic different from the other steel framed bikes that are out there? The Wabi Classic features a hand built, TIG welded, Reynolds 725 frame (not 4130 cro-moly, or Reynolds 500 or 520), along with a superb component group. All bearings are sealed—a low maintenance relationship is guaranteed. Just keep air in the tires and a little lube on the chain. And ride.
- Reynolds 725 double butted, heat treated tubing, TIG welded joints
- Lightweight, responsive wheels (1725g/set)
- Total bike weight of 18.4 lbs (55cm size)
- Road racing inspired frame design for a fast but comfortable ride
- Eyelets for fenders and racks (not on the 42cm bike)
- 700c wheels and flip-flop hubs (650 wheels on the 42cm bike)
- Can fit up to 32mm wide tires

Color/Graphic Choices - Choose from our three stock colors at no extra charge or go all out custom.

Pricing shown and added in the options are approximate and may vary depending on specific details but we will work closely with you on your design and make sure there are no surprises along the way. If you select a custom design we will be in touch to discuss the details.
Wheelset - Please note that 650C Wheels for the 42cm Classic are not available in the Sub-15
Tires - We have expanded our choices of available in-stock tires giving you more options. For our weight conscious cyclists we suggest checking out the Grand Bois 700x23C Extra Leger's.
Brake Calipers - We are proud to offer Sram caliper upgrades in two models, Red and Force.
Crankarms - 95% of Wabi's are purchased with 170mm arms but we have additional options for you.
Chainring/Cog Size - Most find that for general purpose riding 46/18 is a great ratio for the 700C (49-61cm) frame and 47/16 for the 650C (42cm).
Freewheels - The standard freewheel is great quality and what most riders need, the Deluxe version has 6 pawls (as opposed to the standard 3) and is designed for quicker, more positive engagement under high demand situations.
Bar Tape - The leather upgrade option will get you leather tape for drop or bullhorn bars (+$45) or leather grips (+$25) if you have selected straight bars. Lizard Skin DSP 2.5mm bar tape is available in too many colors to list so pick your color from here and let us know your choice in the comment section at checkout.
Omit Items - Have your own saddle, seatpost or don't want rear brakes? No problem - choose to omit them and save money.
