All City BigBlock vs. Wabi Special (mainly frames)
So I finally got my big job i wanted, and can finally afford to start a very nice quality build. Orrr just buy a full bike.
So my budget has relaxed a bit, and id like to keep it under $1000.
In my research I first fixated on the Big Block.
And now i'm leaning towards Wabi.
I have not seen both in person nor have I rode them.
I currently ride a 10sp I built myself, with a cheap nashbar alu frame, zeuss carbon fork, 105 gearing and high end wheels. chines shifters (that are actually amazing! and cheap)
Ive had a Kilo TT in the past, but at the time due to financial constraints had to sell it. Wanted to get back on a fixed gear ever since.
So i want to build another.
BigBlock or Wabi? I'd even be more interested in the Wabi classic for the savings. And if i wanted a lugged fork like the Special has, i could always get one. Or even get a full carbon one.
I like how the Wabi's steel materials are higher quality thatn All City's, and is lighter. But maybe its marketing, maybe not, i for some reason feel the Big Block is built better, adn is stronger? I dont know..
So i ask the people who have experience with both.
Which one is the better buy?
