New Titanium Framebuilder

Hi BikeForums,

I'm a longtime lurker, and a new member. Just wanted to give people a heads-up about No. 22 Bicycle Company, a just-launched titanium framebuilder. We've been testing and refining our lineup relentlessly, and we're finally ready to launch with the following titanium frames:

The Gran Fondo: A long-distance sportive-style road bike, perfect for long, fast events. This frame was put through its paces this summer on an 8,000km (5,000mi) ride across Canada.


The 29er: A modern 29er with super snappy handling and that amazing titanium ride quality.


The Fixed: Super-clean lines and classic track geometry, subtly tweaked for urban riding.


All of our frames are priced super-aggressively at CAD $1,399. Custom geometries are also available!

Check our our website for more details.

Our pricing is in Canadian dollars. Sorry about the confusion—I've edited the post.

Nice frames.

I was hoping you were offering an xs size sportive frame. Alas, no one offers a ti stock size road frame that small : (

Best of luck with your new company!

Thanks for the good luck wishes! You're right that we don't offer an XS size of our Gran Fondo from our regular inventory, but it's something that we've been considering for some time. We could definitely build you a Gran Fondo frame in your size at a heavily reduced price from our normal custom rate, with an eye to adding that size to the Gran Fondo range down the road.

Happy to discuss if you're interested! Feel free to get in touch by PM or e-mail at mike@22bicycles.com.

Thanks!

Mike

Thanks for the warm reception everybody! I just wanted to let you know that we're having a winter sale from now until December 25, with 10% off all of our in-stock frames and forks. The result is an awesome deal for a well-built, great-riding frame: only $1259 for a frame, or $1619 with an Enve 2.0 carbon fork. We're already starting to get light on sizes, so order soon to make sure you get yours at these prices!

Thanks again, and happy holidays!
