Wabi Cycles has updated its steel fixie called The Classic for 2011. Weighing in at 19lbs, this steel bike combines the advantages of being classic and having a lighter weight. This is achieved through an outstanding component group, great updates, and the hand built tig-welded Reynolds 725 frame.

Along with the frame comes road-inspired geometry. At the drop outs, rack and fender mounts were discreetly placed on the inside of the fork blades and seat stays. Moreover, the bike has a new lighter stem and was modified to accept fatter tires, up to 32mm wide.
