Well, that was quick—we're happy to say that this bike found a new home within 24h of being posted. Thanks to all of those interested.
We're selling our brand new Broken Arrow demo bike. Built to be photographed for the Broken Arrow's launch, this bike was never ridden, and is in like-new condition. The only exception is some very minor scuffing on the wheels from being jostled in shipping.
Based on the $5,499 CX1 build of the Broken Arrow, this bike has an upgraded wheelset with Reynolds Assault Disc carbon tubulars. The tires are Clement MXPs, still unglued.
Our regular price for this build is $6,349. For this weeks-old demo, we are asking $5,499.

Trade shows are a logistical challenge at the best of times, and this year the Toronto International Bicycle Show and the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) were separated by four days and nearly 2,000 miles. The whole No. 22 team was scrambling: from late nights anodizing tube samples, last-minute catalogue production, nerve-wracking customs clearances and coordination with our suppliers to make sure not just the bikes, but all of their parts, were there on time. Throw in a blizzard at home and the result has been one of our more ambitious show schedules to date.
So, was it worth it? Absolutely.
We are occasionally asked why we offer a ten year warranty, in contrast to the so-called "lifetime" warranties that are advertised by other titanium builders.
We are tremendously proud of the craftsmanship of our frames, and we have built our brand around offering what we believe are the best made titanium frames currently available. We strive to be open and honest with every element that goes into our bikes, and our warranty is no exception.
It's not every day that we get to announce a new model, which made our launch of the Aurora at the recent Philly Bike Expo even more special. Blending the sublime handling of our Great Divide Disc with the smooth ride quality and increased stiffness under power of the Reactor, the Aurora has been one of the most anticipated bikes we've ever released.
Up front, the Aurora uses a tapered head tube with an integrated headset, shrink-wrapped around the thru-axle tapered steerer carbon road fork. Taking a page from the Reactor's playbook, the Aurora features a CNC-engraved head tube "badge", saving a few grams over our conventional solid titanium badges.
