          Great Ride

          I don't know a lot about geometry or frame construction, but this bike just feels more comfortable and "softer" than the Bianchi Pista that I retired. A 40k ride is easy on it and feels really good and light on hills. Jeremy & Curt we're always quick to get back to me with all my questions and provided amazing support through the whole process. Really happy with my Wabi. Thank you.

          First significant ride

          I did my first longer (22 mi.) ride on my Wabi Road fixie. Pros: Very comfortable, smooth ride, responsive handling. All of the things I like about good steel bikes. Great out-of-saddle climbing with the close-coupled rear triangle, especially for a steel frame. Component quality seems very good overall. Other: The wheels needed just a small bit of truing out of the box. Overall: I love it! much better than a converted road or track bike for fixed-gear riding. Highly recommended.

          Awesome Bike

          The entire purchase process was so easy. I emailed and spoke with Curt on the phone prior to the purchase of the bike to go over specific details that I wanted. It is so cool that the bike is customizable so you can have the exact specs you want from the start and not have to upgrade later. Curt kept me appraised throughout the purchase process; parts ordering, painting and finally the shipment. He was super helpful and seems like a really nice guy. The bike arrived packaged very nicely and well protected. Overall It was easy to assemble. Since it is winter now and the weather is bad here, I have been using the bike on my Inside Ride E-Motion rollers and it works great. I have 3 bikes; Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er, Specialized Sequoia Elite and Wabi Road fixie. The Wabi has become my new favorite.

          Best deal on a high end steel fixed gear... PERIOD!!

          Earlier this year, I bought a Wabi classic to add to my fleet. I already own a Wabi special, but went on a effort intense search which lasted about a week to buy yet another steel fixed gear for my urban, and suburban commuting mode of transport. I can honestly say, that there is not a single sub $1,500 fixed gear on the market that I have not researched during my search, and nothing at all came anywhere close to the quality of the Wabi classic. When I pulled it out of the box, it looked more like a piece of fine art, than a utilitarian mode of transport, and that was just the beginning. The comfort level of the ride, the handling, the stopping ( yup, gotta do that sometimes) are truly second to none. I have a campy record crank, and Dura ace cog that I was going to install, but the quality of the Wabi drive train was good enough that these items have been relegated to the closet. My advise to anyone looking for a high end steel fixed gear (and yes, I do mean "HIGH END"), look no further. You will not find a machine this nice anywhere for less than the cost of a custom built frame, and whatever parts you may throw on it. Wabi is the antidote to the big cycle conglomerates, with their ridiculous price tags. Thanks again guys. Your Wabi special has found a loving forever home.
