We cannot guarantee the fit of any specific component set other than the ones we sell with our complete bikes. If you are planning a specific build please contact us to see if we are aware of any issues. Even so, we will be unable to offer refunds based on lack of fit with any third-party components.
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.
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.
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.
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.
First of all the frame is very high quality. It was packaged with so much care that every little piece was wrapped in foam and bubble wrap as well. It arrived fast and I was about to assemble the bike for my girlfriend, but realized the front wheel i had would not fit into the fron fork, since the axle diameter on the wheel I had was larger. I reached out to the customer service and the company agreed to give me a substantial discount on their already exceptionally priced wheelset (sub 1500g to boot). They threw in the tubes and tires for free and shipped just in time so I could finish the bike build for my girlfriend's surprise. She was riding a generic high-tensile steel bike before, and she immediately noticed the change. The bike is light and fast and an overall joy. In our case we also had almost no alternatives since we needed a small bike ( A 42cm version with a 650c wheels). Overall i highly recommend. I now want a WABI frame for myself.
Exactly what I was looking for. Hugs the street great. I got 32mm tires on there no problem. Makes grooving through New York's City Streets a breeze. Bravo
Nice frameset, built up the ride is like nothing else. Super smooth, handles beautifully. Looks good, feels good. This is now my main ride, love the Mineral Gray color too. I do wish it came with fender mounts like the larger frame sizes but otherwise it’s perfect! Thanks Wabi!
Clean, light, and straight...just like you said. Great job!
Great overall except some of my paint chipped already into one month of use
