42cm / 650c 2019 Wabi Classic

SIZED FOR THE SMALLER RIDER

It can be tough to find a really high-quality bike for shorter riders - so we designed and built a 42cm frameset based on 650c wheels. Perfect for riders around 5 feet tall, this bike can work well for riders from 4'10 to 5'4.

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 2019 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.

Available in Midnight and Pearl, as well as most any other color you like for the same price (this size only).

      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.

      Awesome bike

      It's light, simple, beautiful, and most importantly lot of fun to ride. Being my first single speed I was worried about certain inclines during my commute, but they were non issues. Love love love this bike.

      The Sweetest Ride Ever

      My overall experience with the team at Wabi Cycles was excellent. They are personal, personable, and responsive ... very responsive online or on phone to help customize or adjust your order. My only negative feedback would be that sometimes, the confirmation e-mails don't necessarily clearly match over-the-phone agreements. None-the-less, these guys are awesome. As far as my Wabi Classic.... I love it! I have been commuting to work on a fixed gear bike for 12 years now and this by far is the best of everything. Quality parts, beautiful frame, smooth as silk!!! I will be a repeat customer. Have already shared it with several co-workers who are very impressed. Keep up the good work Wabi team!!! Keith .

      Slick, reliable

      This bike is the perfect commuter: lightweight, handles well, can take the elements standing up, and beautiful to look at.
