Wabi Special

Special: This is the traditionalist's choice, due to the craftsmanship of the lugged and brazed frame. The road manners are incredible- it feels very connected to the pavement, very secure, especially on rough sections. This bike soaks up road vibration, and is, in my opinion, the best one for long distance riding comfort. A top quality fixed gear, the Special weighs in at 18.6 lbs.

Thanks. The 25mm wide rims + 90psi tires make the ride very smooth. Next upgrade is in the area of the cranks.
