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.

Excellent Overall Value

I have enjoyed the bicycle for several years. I have learned to ride fixed gear and appreciate the drivetrain efficiency . I now can actually feel the drag of the free hub on my other road bike. The frame is of exceptional quality. I did not have to sacrifice stiffness on the larger size. It is very light, responsive to acceleration and rides with the smoothness typical of a traditional steel frame. After several thousand miles I experienced some drivetrain noise. I recommend upgrading the bottom bracket and crank set as this cured the problem. I installed the SRAM external bearing BB with their Onmium crankset. . I am 6' 2", 210lbs. My only other upgrade was replacing the tires with Continental Grand Prix 4000s II. The base wheels have held up very well. Given my size and weight, I opted not to go with the more expensive lighter set upgrade.

Fun fun fun

Got about 100 miles on so far and think the lightning is great. I’m getting used to riding this style of bike still so I don't have much foundation to talk about ride quality or anything thing like that. I can say that it is meeting my expectations and is fun to ride.
