0 Comment

 

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.

Little Wing Update

One-piece titanium dropouts now offer a full 1" of adjustment.

We have been hard at work for the past few months updating and improving the Little Wing, and are excited to announce that production has commenced.

First, what's not changing on the Little Wing: the bike's core elements that made the original Little Wing such a success are all intact. The revised Little Wing keeps the stiff yet comfortable ride quality, track specific geometry and striking design of the original.

What's Happening at No. 22
1 Comment

As those who have been following us recently know, this has been a year of big change at No. 22 Bicycle Company. Between opening our new manufacturing facility, updating our current bikes, developing new models and growing our dealer network, we’ve managed to pack quite a bit into the last few months. The following are the highlights of these changes.

Our New Framebuilding Facility


Our new production home in Johnstown, NY.

As we announced in the spring, we have opened a new manufacturing facility in upstate New York. Occupying space in a former textile mill, we have taken advantage of this fresh start in titanium framebuilding and have assembled the perfect mix of new and old equipment. Mitering takes place on a row of dedicated US-made Bridgeport vertical mills, each cutting as precisely as they have for the last 50 years. At the other end of the spectrum, our HAAS CNC lathe butts tubing with perfect precision, allowing us to remove exactly the right amount of material from our tubing to make sure every frame rides exactly as intended.

We're gearing up to send two riders to the Brooklyn Red Hook Crit this weekend aboard a pair of Little Wing frames. Toronto rider Andrew Romashyna (pictured below in a great shot by Steve Carty) will be aboard a slightly tweaked version of the build that he first sampled earlier this winter. NYC native Wilis Johnson will also be stomping aboard a Little Wing frame, and he put together a time lapse (above) of his frame coming together.

We're lucky to have two awesome guys aboard our bikes for this event. Keep an eye out for them this weekend!

A Cycling Renaissance

While in architecture school back in 2005, I took a philosophy elective entitled 20th Century Theories of the End of Art. That same year, Armstrong won his fifth Tour de France. The thread that connected these seemingly disparate events in my mind was one of the assigned course readings, Art & Fear, by French Cultural Theorist, Paul Virilio. Virilio's essays in this work focus on the idea that the 'go for it' embracement of technology in Western culture and its correlations to speed and power leads to a cultural hubris and drains the collective humanity out of us. Art & Fear illustrates this with examples of vulgar hybridizations of man and technology from the macabre chemicalization of corpses in the Body Worlds exhibits of Gunther von Hagens to Austria's Sterlac, who uses mechanical prosthetics in his aim to fuse man and machine. Chemicals and machines—that brings us back to Armstrong.
