    I'm definitely not a bike expert but on their website and when I called they recommended the Narrow for road bikes and MTB with handlebars below seat level and the standard for Trekking and touring...

    For my wabi I got the B17 Narrow. The B17 standard seems to be best suited for handlebars that are level or above the seat so I ruled it out for any FG bike since most have handlebars below the seat.

    I had to wait about a month as well for my Special. The wait will definitely be worth it. The Special is an amazing ride I know you'll love it.

    I've only heard positive things about the scandium lightning and from what I understand, that bike is what put wabicycles on the map. If you have an opportunity to grab one I'd definitely go for it....

    Definitely a good idea! This is my first fixed gear and I've noticed little nuances about not having a freewheel that make it more 'difficult' to ride. Difficult in the sense that it isn't second...

    interesting... maybe rust wasn't as big of an issue as I thought at least when the frame is concerned. I'm still curious about the whole lug vs TIG issue. Maybe modern technology and steel tubes...

    So my basic question is do modern bikes last like their predecessors? I've been debating hard on which wabi cycle to get: Classic or special. They both use Reynolds 725, the difference of course...
