Wabi Special Frameset, Imperfects

Our lugged frame features a timeless aesthetic that can go more retro or modern depending on how you design it. This limited selection of framesets are 'Imperfects,' meaning they have very minor tubing or paint imperfections from the factory and are being sold at a discount of 10%. These can also be built into a full build with the same frame $ discount applied to the whole build. We recommend buying the frame and then contacting us about a quote on the full build.

Imperfections are typically have 1-2 very small indentations (smaller than a pea and about 1mm deep) in the top tube, seat tube or down tube and/or a minor paint issue (swirling, thickening). These issues would be hard to find if not pointed out (and very difficult to photograph), but are marked as 'Imperfects'. They do not impact the performance or warranty of the frames and, as noted, are not noticeable to the casual observer. S

Frame: Hand-built using seamless heat treated, double butted oversized Reynolds 725 chromoly steel main tubes with forged track style rear drops. Braze ons for two bottle cages, on the down tube and seat tube. Beautiful hand brazed lugged construction.
