We've now made it much easier to customize a Wabi Lightning SE. If you want any help at all in spec'ing out your Wabi, please contact us.
Under 18 lbs, the Lightning SE is a bike that changes the steel fixed gear game. At 17.5 lbs, the SE is the lightest production steel framed fixed gear available. It's the perfect combination of characteristics—light and fast but with that great ride of super light steel.

Wheelset - The Standard is our light 32/32 spoke wheelset, Sub-15's are superlight at less than 1500 grams/set!
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).
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.
