Wabi Urban Classic, 52cm, Midnight Blue

 

The Wabi Urban Classic is built for those looking for a more versatile ride for daily commutes, year-round riding or short cargo hauls. The Urban uses our versatile Thunder frameset, which supports a wider range of tire sizes (28mm to 50mm), more fender/rack options and has a longer wheelbase for increased stability--while still keeping under 20 lbs. We've optimized the build for urban riding with your choice of 46t/18t or 46t/19t gearing; Panaracer Pasela Urban tires and all-weather Brooks Cambium bar tape. Racks and fenders are extra.

Currently available in very limited sizes and colors. The Urban Classic will be "re-booted" in a couple of months with Matte Black and Turquoise as the new colors as well as some new build options.

      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.
