2019 Wabi Special Pro

LUGGED FRAME WABI WITH UPGRADES

For many cyclists, the ultimate bicycle starts with a high quality steel frame, using low temperature brazing and lugs to join the tubes. Lugged steel bike frames offer a road feel unlike any other design, but not all lugged steel frames are created equal. 

The Wabi Special Pro includes selected upgrades like the beautiful and functional Sugino RD2 crankset in silver, to match the rest of the silver components. Also included are tan sidewall Panaracer ProTite tires in keeping with the retro feel of this gorgeous bike.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

The Wabi Special uses a fully hand-brazed frame, built by specially trained frame builders in Taiwan. The difference in the Wabi Special is that these builders are trained by one of the top hand-built frame builders from Japan. The workmanship (clean joints, mitering of the tubes, drop outs seamlessly integrated into the stays) is outstanding, and the resulting ride is buttery-smooth, with amazing stability.

ALL NEW COLORS

For the first time ever, the Wabi Special is available in a brilliant new blue and a classic green. 

  • Reynolds 725 double butted, heat treated tubing

      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.

      5 Star Bike, 4 Star Service.

      The bike itself is incredible. I have purchased 4 in as many years. One from Richard the original owner of the company with no issues but with 2 of the 3 from Matt and Curt I had issues with one bike being delivered with one wheel seriously out of true and the other slightly less so and my last bike being delivered with 2 deep chips/scratches in paint down to bare metal. Disappointing to say the least. I understand things happen and get overlooked before being shipped out or sometimes damage can occur during shipping but while I admit they will offer to correct things the price you pay is passive aggressive sarcasm to your concerns. Both Matt and Curt have been guilty of this on the phone and in email reply’s. Seems an odd way to respond if your going to fix the issue anyway, why make excuses and insert sarcasm if your going to do the right thing in the end anyway. I took the time to submit pictures of the damage for verification, it would have been nice to simply receive an apology and a resolution not excuses/sarcasm and a resolution with an attitude. Will I purchase another Wabi from them? I don’t know but make no mistake about it the bikes are awesome and if you have an issue they will stand behind the bike.
