All of our STANDARD component groups are complete as intended by the Drivetrain company, we don’t make any substitutions to lower the apparent cost of the bike.
Standard in all of our builds are components that we’ve carefully selected to provide the best user experience while not going overboard on extravagances that don’t necessarily add to the performance.
While we maintain our personal preferences and recommendations when choosing
component packages, we also realize that you may have developed your own
personal preferences for bike builds that we’ve not previously offered. If you do not see what you are hoping for here, ask us and we will do our best to accommodate your desire.
Zipp Speed SL Carbon Seat Post and SL Contour Carbon handlebars save weight and provide important added vibration damping especially when paired with Zipp's SC SL stem. Nothing completes a great assembly better than great handlebar tape, and the best tape for fit, feel and finish is fi'zi:k.
From our favorite wheel company, the Ardennes LT Plus wheels are everything you want in a reliable wheel set- great acceleration, cornering, stability under heavy cross-winds and hard braking, the perfect width for 25-32 tires, and they just ride great… and considering all of this…they are pretty light too and tubeless compatible.
Tires and tubes
We exclusively use super premium, top tier tires with high thread count with a standard width of 25mm that optimize your paved rides while handling pretty much any surface coupled with premium, light weight inner tubes. Due to changing availability, the brand and model will vary- Schwalbe. Vredestein, and Continental.
Saddle and Pedals?
There is nothing worse than an ill-fitting pair of shoes… except perhaps an ill-fitting saddle. Price has nothing to do with it. You do. There is no such thing as the perfect saddle for everyone, so we’ve taken the step of separating the saddle purchase from the bike because why make you buy something that may not have the right fit? If you already have a saddle that you love, we recommend that you stay with that brand and model. If you don’t, we offer a limited range of saddles from the two brands that have been found to have the best fit with most cyclists- fi'zi:k and Specialized.
