The Wabi Difference
Wabi stands apart from other fixed gear/single speed bikes in several important ways, making our bikes a better value and better ride over time.
Wabi frames are road-designed rather than track-designed (upright angles, short wheelbase), which means comfort, efficiency and predictable handling. Combined with high quality tubing, our road frame design is agile and fast. Most fixed gear bikes will never see a velodrome, so we build for road riding.
We use a much higher quality grade of steel as our basic standard: Reynolds 725 double butted tubing. This means we use less of it, and you get a stronger, lighter, more responsive frame - our Special, Classic and Lightning SE models come in under 18.5 lbs in a 55cm size frame.
At 1750 g/set, ours may be the lightest set of wheels to come standard on any fixed gear under $2,000. While it’s popular to use deep V rim design or aerospokes for tricks and short rides, we opt for the wheel that will go the distance.
Customizable Component Specs
We’re serious when we say that Wabi bikes are designed with the rider in mind. Achieve the absolute best fit for your needs: Choose stem type and extension, plus bar type and width. We’ll even cut the steerer tube for you to get a specific bar height. You can also spec different crank lengths, chainring sizes, and rear cog sizes. Get the drivetrain you want: freewheel, fixed cog, or both. To see more options, check out our Components.
