The Great Divide Disc is now available

by Mike Smith May 16, 2015 2 Comments


There's no escaping it: disc brakes on road bikes are here in a very big way. In recent months disc brakes have become our most popular custom option on the Great Divide, and in recognition of this we are now building the Great Divide Disc as a stand-alone model.

Based on the acclaimed Great Divide, the Great Divide Disc is aimed at riders looking for a little more out of their road bike. More stopping power, especially in wet or slippery conditions. More tire clearance now that rim brake calipers are out of the picture. And of course more flexibility to take the road less traveled on your next ride, even if that means leaving the pavement behind.

The Great Divide Disc features the same geometry and ride quality as the Great Divide on which it's based, which means agile handling with a level of comfort and stability perfect for fast, long distance rides. A thoughtfully butted and shaped tubeset helps take the edge off rough surfaces while staying stiff under power.

The Great Divide Disc is offered in the following configurations:

  • Frame only, from $2,699
  • Frameset, from $3,249 including an Enve disc road carbon fork and Chris King headset
  • Complete, from $5,449 equipped with an Ultegra 6800 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes

I just purchased a No. 22 Great Divide Disc. The bike is truly awesome. The frame design and geometry are exquisite. The handling is precise and the bike is extremely responsive, both on flats and on climbs. It is also a work of art. I bought the fully built bike and you can see the quality and craftsmanship in every detail. When I’m not riding it, I find myself wandering to the garage just to look at it. Bryce and team also were attentive throughout the design and build process. If more people knew about these bikes, everyone would be riding one!

I am interested to buy this divide disc frame set (or perhaps full bike). What is the lead time? Can you ship to Saudi Arabia?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

The No. 22 welding team is led by Frank Cenchitz, who personally has over 20 years of welding titanium bike frames. Sam Dries, our young prodigy (and hotshot CX racer) has added nearly three years of training under Frank to his previous welding experience. The knowledge and experience of our weld team is a key element of what makes every No. 22 special. Click through to read more about our welding process.

Why Ride Titanium?

No. 22 Raw Titanium Tubing

Many different materials can be used in the manufacturing of a bicycle, each with their own set of benefits and challenges. Before launching No. 22 Bicycles, we put significant time and energy into considering the type of performance, comfort, durability and aesthetics we wanted to offer to our customers.

With the frame qualities established, we researched which material would best deliver the ride experience we were working towards. In the end we agreed that titanium was the best solution.

In this post we examine some of the attributes of titanium, and how its properties deliver the ride experience every No. 22 frame offers. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but may help point you in the right direction when choosing your next frame.

Starting the season strong: 2017 NAHBS and Toronto show wrap-ups

by Mike Smith March 19, 2017 2 Comments

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.
