The FABIKE frame
has been developed to be the best compromise between race bike and track bike
Plus, it introduces the possibility to choose from a much wider range
of tire sizes than any previous race or track bike.
Compact: delivering great
Comfortable: allowing long
in and out of the city.
Robust and with
pedals: ensuring greater safety
during urban and off-road rides.
The FABIKE frame will be available with internal cable routing, a BB30
bottom bracket and a semi-integrated seat post.
It will come in
five sizes: XS S M L XL
below the frame geometry and fork comparison.
FABIKE frame will be produced with a monocoque technology using a mix of Toray T800 and T1000 carbon fiber, ensuring stiffness and
extremely light weight at the same time.
reference, the frame in size M will weight 1.10 Kg/2.4 pounds,
while the weight of the frameset (frame, fork, headset and seatclamp)
will be 1.55 Kg/3.4 pounds.
GROUND BRAKING DROPOUTS
The dropouts are the core of the FABIKE frame.
They have been designed in a way never seen before. This great innovation means that you will be able to change the dropout spacing from 120 mm to 130 mm (both with or without derailleur hanger) in order to mount different kinds of hubs onto the frame.
But, this is not all. The FABIKE dropouts have vertical insertion. This means that you will be able to mount the rear wheel
as easily as on a road frame without the need for a chain tensioner, as the two dropouts will be able to slide horizontally obtaining optimal chain tensioning. Additionally, the sliding factor is regulated by a high-precision micro-adjustment
integrated inside the frame.
This is of course the best solution if you want to use the bike as a single speed/fixed gear bicycle, but it does not prevent you from equipping it with a cassette and derailleur if you wish to have more gears.
The dropouts will be produced using CNC machinery, out of 7075 aluminum alloy (ergal) and titanium locking bolts.
In order to create the most functional, coherent, comfortable and
adjustable bike possible, we have designed several components that will be
found exclusively on the FABIKE.
The crankset has
been designed for a single chainring that will be fitted for both a road and a
The main features are: BB30 technology, adjustable chain ring chainline 42 mm/43.5 mm, cranks
lengths available in 165 mm, 170 mm and 175 mm. Chain ring 46T. Anodized black
with customizable locking bolts color: red, yellow, green, blue, violet.
FABIKE crankset will be made out of 7075 aluminium alloy (ergal) and will
set the scales down at only 650 gr/1.43 pounds chain ring, spindle and bolts included.
The FABIKE hub
has been designed to be an innovative fixed/free wheel flip-flop hub. The
improvement lays in the fact that the freewheel side features an internal
freewheel. It means that both on the fixed and the freewheel side you will be
able to use the same cog with a Shimano spline. This will save you a lot of weight
and will allow for a greater handiness.
Available with white shell and
customizable locking bolts color: red, yellow, green, blue, violet.
will be made out of the 7075 aluminium alloy (ergal) and will weight only 280
wheelset are available both in fixed/single speed and 10 speed cassette
version. They feature special rims, specificly designed to be comfortably
fitted with range of tires from the regular 700x23 road tyre to the 700x35
city/cyclocross tyre, and ensure the maximum vibration absorbing and comfort.
They will have 24 radial spokes in the front wheel, 32 spokes with two crosses
in rear wheel. Available only in clincher version, black rims and personalizable nipples
and skewer/bolts color: red, yellow, green, blue, violet.
The two wheels in
fixed/single speed version will weight 1480 gr/3.26 pounds, the 10 speed cassette version will weight 1440 gr/3.17 pounds.
The FABIKE brake
levers have been designed to the extreme minimalist fashion, ergonomic and able to be
fitted with any kind of cable head.
They will be produced out of the 6110
aluminium alloy and will weight only 35 gr/1.2 onces per lever.
bullhorn handlebar is the best solution for an urban cyclist. Its ergonomical
design combines compactness, comfort and the possibility to optimally fit the brake levers (thank to the 15/17 cm width central part) and an aero gear shifter thank to the internal cable routing.
The handlebar will be
made using high quality carbon fiber composites. There will be two available sizes: 420 mm
and 440 mm. Weight will be about 180 gr/6.3 onces.
saddle is a high performance saddle with carbon fiber rail and micreotex cover.
Its minimalist design is available only in white. It weights just 170 gr/6 onces.
brakes are optimally designed to fit with the FABIKE fork and chainstay. In
fact, they have a longer reach (58-73 mm front, 42-59 mm rear) than the normal road brakes, so you can be sure
they will be able to work properly on the rims.
They will be placed behind the fork and under the bottom bracket area.
The FABIKE brakes are made out of aluminium alloy 6110 and they are available only in anodized black. They weight 320 gr/11.3 onces per pair.
The FABIKE stem
is a super light-weight stem made out of aluminium alloy 7075 (regal).
Available only in white color, 84° angle and 90 mm or 100 mm leangth. The weight is starting from 100
seatpost has been designed as a semi-integrated seatpost that perfectly fits on
the vertical tube of the FABIKE frame. It is made of high quality carbon fibers
and black anodized aluminium alloy.
It has the diameter of 31.6 mm and measures 150
mm in leangth. The weight is about 120 gr/4.2 onces.
In case you wish to use the FABIKE frame not with a BB30 crankset but with a 24 mm spindle crankset you can use the bottom bracket adaptors. Available only in black. The weight is about 80 gr/2.8 onces.
