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, very 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.

    Overall a great light bike that I have been enjoying a lot.

    So far it has been a pleasant experience. I do have a few issues with the condition and quality of a few components that came with the bike such as the chain ring (non-concentric) and a creaking crank (which I have since fixed). However, aside from these issues, my experience with Wabi has been wonderful. I will follow up with shipping and returns about the chain ring.

    Awesome bike!

    The bike arrived packed nicely and no dents or marks on the frame. Pretty quick shipping from the states to NZ as well all things considered. So far it has been an absolute pleasure to ride and I am thoroughly enjoying riding it fixed. Bottom line I would buy this bike again!

    Absolutely loving this bike!

    I've put ~100 miles on my Wabi so far and I love it. I can't believe how light weight this bike is, acceleration and coasting downhill are both really quick. For upgrades, I went with the Sub 15 wheels, Gatorskin 28c tires, and the Brooks B17 saddle and they've all been very worthwhile upgrades. The bike aside, Wabi customer service was awesome. They forgot something in my order and refunded the same day no questions asked.

    Took an exceptionally long time, love the bike though

    There were several delays and it took weeks longer than it was supposed to go receive the bike. That said, customer service was good and I love my bike.
