8Bar keeps upping their bar with new, specialty bikes that don’t compromise technology or looks for that matter. Their new GRUNEWALD all road utilizes a dropped chainstay, an integrated seat post clamps, internal routing, rack/fender mounts, bottle bosses on the fork, Di2 routing, and if that’s not enough already, clearance for a 27.5 x 2″ tire, all manufactured from UD airplane carbon fiber. There’s much more to these frames, which are available for pre-order now, with an August delivery. Check out more information at 8Bar.
The team at 8 Bar embarked on a ride that would cross the Splügen Pass from Switzerland to Italy on their way to the Red Hook Criterium Milan 2016.
Ucon and 8Bar Bikes got together recently to take the concept of creating a ‘featherlight’ track bike to the next level. Personally, I think this came out great! I really love the paint and the details down to the collaboration caps and straps. The video is a little long, but you get the idea.
