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.
Ordered this in January. Had problems with the headset installation and adjustment replaced it. I set this up for touring the Ohio to Erie Trail and rode it round trip. I built a Nexus 3 speed drive train and it works quick and flawless. I also ride with urban style flat bars and a rear rack. I use Panaracer 38 mm gravel tires and there is room to spare. Nice and lite clean and simple nimble and stable. I would recommend this frame set.
Ordered a frame from Germany. I've recieved the package about 30 days after placing the order and it arrived undamaged. Nice frame.
