Order and Build Notes
  • We are looking at about a 1-2 week turnaround right now.
  • Component colors are limited - especially silver - so Sable Greens can have silver or black components, but Cloud Gray can only have black components. Also, we only have black top mount brakes.
  • While we had to raise prices given high costs, we have reduced prices on many upgrades.
  • 60cm builds will require additional assembly (fork installation) due to having to use a smaller box due to high Fedex oversize charges. It will require an additional 10-15 minutes of assembly.
  • Custom colors start at $250 extra ($1,245) depending on the color chosen. Some colors or treatments may cost more and require additional billing after purchase. 
  • We no longer ship builds outside of the US and Canada - just framesets and components.
  • 42cm frames are not available with this release. They won't be available until the fall of 2022.
Description

BUILT FOR THE LONG ROAD, READY FOR THE STREETS

If you’re a road cyclist looking to make the leap to single speed or fixed gear—whether for training, an added challenge, or to try something new—the Wabi Classic is made for you. With frame geometry that’s relaxed but not slouchy, it’s perfect for long distance head-up riding while remaining aggressive enough to tuck in and give those pedals hell.

If mashing down city streets is more your style, the Wabi Classic's short wheelbase gives you a nimble ride for dodging taxis or bunny-hopping any rip-rap that gets in your way.

IN STEEL WE TRUST

At about 19 pounds, the Wabi Classic is one of the lightest all-steel fixed gear bikes around. And it’s all thanks to Reynolds 725 Chromoly steel. As a double-butted tubing, Reynolds 725 has thinner walls throughout its length while its critical connection points are thicker to allow for stronger welds. It’s also heat-treated for greater durability and rigidity than the more-common 4130 Chromoly steel used in lower-end framesets. TIG welded by hand, this frame is as strong as it is sleek.

ROCK SOLID COMPONENTS

At the tail-end, you’ll find true track-style horizontal rear dropouts that can handle the extra torque generated when backpedaling to slow your roll. Rock-solid components from major makers including Tektro, Tange, and Andel complete the package.

Adding to the buttery feel of the Wabi Classic, a hand-brazed tapered Chromoly steel fork leads the way, soaking up bumps and chatters like a champ. Shipped with a sealed bearing Tange Seiki Technoglide headset installed and ready to rock, expect crisp steering and handling out of the box.

PICK YOUR BUILD

Every Wabi is assembled to order, so you can have drop bars, riser bars, bullhorns, compact drops, all at no extra charge. Tell us what gearing you want, upgrade your wheels or tires, or let us know about anything else you've seen on a Wabi (or another bike) and we'll build your bike the way you want it.

The Classic will be available in Sable Green, a dark glossy green, and Cloud Gray, a light/medium gray. For custom colors, see our topic on how to choose a color. Note that custom colors take 2-3 weeks additional time.

  • Reynolds 725 double butted, heat treated tubing, TIG welded joints
  • Lightweight 700c responsive wheels - only 1725g/set.
  • Total bike weight of about 19 lbs (55cm size)
  • Road racing inspired frame design for a fast but comfortable ride
  • Eyelets at front and rear dropouts for fenders and racks 
  • Flip-flop hubs - run freewheel, fixed or both
  • 46t/18t freewheel (default on drive side) and fixed cog
  • 28mm Kenda tires (fits up to 32mm wide tires)

    Less is more

    Riding the Wabi Classic is a breath of fresh air. I was a roadie for 10 years and racked up many miles but needed more and got tired of the hassle of keeping the complicated bicycle tuned. I checked up on single speed bikes and was sold. Lately, my comfort zone is the harder gear ratio anyway so shifting became less of an issue. The ratio on the stock Wabi is a little soft but I can change ratio in the future if need be. The Classic out of the box is gorgeous.

    Comfy, lightweight, and fast.

    I've been saving up for the Wabi Classic for about a year and it was well worth the wait. I assumed some of the hype around this vehicle was overstated, but it definitely delivered in terms of weight, handling, and overall feel. Looking forward to the many miles ahead. Also, the customer service was top tier. Victor promptly responded to questions that I had as well as trouble shooting some of my incorrectly inputted measurements pertaining to my bike fit.
