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. It's important
to use high end tubing with high quality lugs, investment
cast being the standard, and most importantly, the
correct building technique. The Wabi Special fixed gear
uses a fully hand brazed frame, built by specifically
trained frame builders in Taiwan. The difference in the
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.
However, the
Special is not just a trip down memory lane.
The goal was to combine the best of old and new, so, for
example, I use the Reynolds 725 oversized thin walled
tubes and 1 1/8" threadless type steerer
tube/headset/stem system to increase the integrity and
efficiency, while optimizing the ride characteristics by
using the tried and true low temperature brazing
technique for joining the frame tubes. For more
details on
this frame, click here.

All bearings on the Special are sealed, so just keep air in
the tires, add a little lube on the chain from time to time,
and ride. Note that the bike is supplied with a fixed cog
only, but the flip- flop style hubs allow a 2nd cog
(freewheel or fixed) to be installed on the opposite side of
the hub.
