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.

BOMBPROOF EVERYTHING

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.

For Fall 2019, the Classic is available in Midnight Blue, a dark metallic blue, and Mineral Gray, light warm gray. You can also choose your component colors as black (with black chain) or silver (with gold chain). If you want a color modification, let us know in the checkout comments.

    Steel

    We use Reynolds 725 and Columbus Spirit. These higher quality grades of steel allows us to use less of it, so you get a lighter, more responsive frame.

    E.D Coating

    Our steel frames are E.D. coated to act as a rust preventative and a primer. This high-performance rust inhibitor is applied inside the frame and out.

    design

    Wabi frames are road-designed with upright angles, and short wheelbases, which creates comfort, efficiency, and predictable handling. Our road frame design gives you an agile and fast ride.

    Details

    We love the detail of our frames. You'll find cast-brazed dropouts, machined head tubes, brazed seatpost collars, bottle cage eyelets, and brazed forks.

    The Most Fun I've Ever Had On A Bike

    I've had this bike for about two months and have put a respectable amount of miles on it for someone who purely rides for pleasure. I can honestly say this is the most fun I've ever had on a bicycle. The ride quality and craftsmanship are truly top notch. It is a pure joy to ride this bike and I also find myself admiring it throughout the day because it just looks so classy and clean. In addition, the customer service I received during the buying process was impeccable. I often forget what it feels like to have a merchant want me to be happy instead of just wanting my money. I look forward to riding this bike for years to come and am proud to say I own a Wabi.

    Loving my new Wabi bike

    This bike rides like a dream - it is incredibly smooth and sturdy. I have developed a newfound love for riding with this bike. My mid-range to long-distance rides are a breeze, and my commutes and errands are a daily delight. You definitely get what you pay for.

    Excellent bike; great service

    Put about 100 miles on my new Wabi Special. Damon was a great help handling an exchange and some special requests. The bike has handled incredibly well. Like so many have said, the bike just feels “buttery smooth” with the handling. Quick up hill, grippy downhill. Everything’s just about perfect. I paired the bike with a brooks cambium all weather (pretty solid saddle) and some nylon pedals with mini screw grips, which are perfect for a bike like this.
