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 and Mineral 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.

    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.

    Unbelievable quality

    I recently purchased the Wabi Classic and I'm very impressed with the quality of this bike. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing (I choose the Midnight Blue) it's ride is nothing short of amazing. I went from a beginner fixed gear bike (which I have ridden almost every day for the past 2 years) to the Wabi Classic. The difference is day and night. The Wabi Classic is so responsive to every little move it feels like and extension of my body. The geometry is perfect. It's quick off the line and smooth as silk and rolls flawlessly. It doesn't feel like I have to "work" to get the bike moving. I upgraded to the Sub 15 wheelset and am so glad I did. Wabi was great to meet my needs as to what I wanted on my bike and their communication was phenomenal. They asked just the right questions and the bike came in a timely fashion. The bike was super easy to put together and because of the quality of craftsmanship it was amazingly simple to make all the adjustments needed to fit my body. This bike is the crème de la crème of fixed gear cycles. Do yourself a favor and own a true piece of craftsmanship. It's a gem. P.S. I am an avid cyclist and have been riding bikes almost daily for the past 13 years. This is as fine a bike as I have every owned.

    Wabi Classic

    Loving it! This is my first steel frameset and it definitely lives up to it's reputation. I can't wait to start putting some serious miles on it but so far riding around town it's been a gem. I will say that I should have gotten a size smaller - I bought the 55 but should have gotten the 53. I assumed that since my road bike is a 54 it would make sense to get the 55 but the geometry is way different so just keep that in mind. Definitely better to go smaller if in doubt - no big deal just need to adjust some of the contact points and it'll be good to go.
