We get to do some seriously beautiful bike builds in this store, but this one was exceptional even by our standards.
Open Cycles is a brand that has just been launched in NZ and we were the first ones in the country to build one of there new UP Gravel Road bikes.
This is a fine piece of kit and beauitfully finished with only the best parts from ENVE, SRAM, 3T, Fixik & WTB.
Get out of town on asphalt, hit the gravel roads or switch to singletrack. The geometry gets you there fast; the big tires make you unstoppable.
The frame is available in two versions:
|-||The standard U.P. with 3T Luteus II fork for post-mount disc brakes|
|-||The superlight U.P.P.E.R. with OPEN U-turn fork for flat-mount disc brakes|
Overall, the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. share the same principles of intended use, same tire clearance, same exact shape and geometry. But they differ in layup, weight, fork, disc brake mounts, thru-axles and colour.
