Super Stoked 2019: Gideon’s 333 Fab AirLandSea Kyler Martz Cascadian Rambler

I was amazed at the number of 333 Fab bikes rolling at this year’s Super Stoke Weekend. One of which was this limited edition, Kyler Martz-designed, Now You’re Finished-painted, AirLandSea all-road/light tourer, piloted by Gideon Tsang from Austin. Morgan Taylor reviewed one for the site last year. Max from 333 Fab designed these bikes as a “Cascadian Rambler,” meant to take on all day or multi-day dirt road rides throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

These bikes are made in a limited production run, with various sizing to ensure the rider can get their custom fit dialed in. You can choose from one of seven sizes, with the ability to fit riders ranging from 5’ – 6’5”. The sizing doesn’t stop at the geometry alone, Each individual size has its own specific tubeset with engineered tube diameters to ensure a proper ride quality. How they build up the frames is up to them! I particularly took to Gideon’s build spec, as it’d be close to how I’d build one of these up myself.

The paint is so distracting to photograph, with hidden easter eggs abound, of which I feel like I probably only documented 75% of the Kyler Martz designs. All of which are overlaid on top of a beautiful jade green to aqua fade.

Gid’s build is a 1x with SRAM Force, a soon-to-be-released Dark Realm Label bar bag, White Industry cranks, Klamper brakes, a SON hub, Super Nova light, and 27.5 x 47mm wheels, rolling on WTB Venture tires, a beefier version of their popular Byway. Highly recommended! The bike has such a comfortable look and I’m sure rode like a dream through the San Rafael Valley last weekend.

Max is also battling Stage 3 cancer right now and could use your help. Head to his GoFundMe for more information.

  • Lovely!

  • Love this one. That paint job and Kyler Martz design makes this bike look so great. 333Fab bikes are always solid, and underappreciated. Gideon always has great taste!

  • Adam Leddin

    Just keep face-palming myself with how good this frame and build is.

  • Dr J

    The best thing about this 333Fab frame are those tiny, cool logos here and there. Gideon’s build is spot on – nothing to add, I guess.

  • Ryanisinallofus

    How do I get that front bag?

    • I think they’re posting them for sale soonish.

    • I wasn’t sure if it was public knowledge yet. I’ll add it into the article.

  • Great bike and a great build.

  • This was one review bike I was very, very sad to send back! Great build, Gideon!

  • Sattelfest

    sad in a way that the gorilla monsoon has come in the way…

    • How so?

      • Sattelfest

        I mean, I just read about the 333 in early summer 2017 and thought: wow! ticking all the boxes, with the lugged fork, the frame geometry, the love to detail. Just a perfect bike and of course out of reach for me. And then, just a half year later, the monsoon comes in with nearly the same kind of aesthetics, but as an affordable stock bike. Nothing wrong in that. Good for us. But the magic has gone all of a sudden. I mean, its like Ultraromance can be measured, can be bought, can be tied to earth…(-; that is a world gone topsy turvy…

        • Well, the 333 Fab is made by Max in Seattle and the All City is made overseas and weighs a lot more. They might be similar on paper, but different in reality.

          • DODGERDISCIPLE

            I love my All-City Gorilla but it’s a heavier rig. The 333 I am sure is lighter as tube grade is superior.

  • PabloP

    This is interesting because Bicycle Quarterly did not give it such a glowing review. https://www.bikequarterly.com/biketest/

    • AdamBike99

      That is because Jan, who is BQ, seems to compare every bicycle to a mid century Rene Herse machine… That, and everyone is entitled to their own opinion! 8~}

    • Opinions are like websites. Everyone has one! Jan looks at things through a different lens. It’s not bad or wrong, but a bit different than other’s opinions from time to time.

    • campagnocchi

      I mean I love Jan but he is stuck in his ways, for better or worse. Just because this bike did not work for him, does not mean its a bad bike, on the contrary I am going to bet that it is a fantastic bike. I would love have one and would ride the shit out of it. And to add to that, its a pretty ass bike.

  • DODGERDISCIPLE

    Max is a true artisan. This is by far my favorite Triple 3 I have seen. Just wow! That fork is to die for. Just mind-blowing. Max will kick the shit out cancer too. Go Max Go!
