Black Magic Paint and Open WI.DE. Limited Edition Complete Bike

Limited edition runs of high-end bikes might not be for everyone’s wallet but I think we can all agree that the skill and talent go into bikes like this are worthy of our time. Enter the Black Magic Paint and Open WI.DE., a limited run of complete bikes finished in a truly unique paint job and built with SRAM eTap and ENVE.

Each one of these limited edition complete bikes will feature an exclusive finish designed by BMP using some of their most popular finish options. The main color of the bike is a color-shifting blue to purple pearl which changes depending on the vantage point and lighting, constantly changing and shifting, blending in nicely with the rainbow finish of the SRAM Eagle XX1 AXS cassette and chain. Beneath the beautiful shifting blue and purple lies sections of exposed uni-directional carbon fiber. Finally, chrome foil accents highlight the frame and fork to tie in perfectly with the SRAM Red eTap AXS components chrome foil and unidirectional carbon.

To top it off BMP and OPEN have produced custom decals for the wheels to match the design elements of the frame and Red eTap AXS components. The result is a complete bike where all of the components are not only purposely selected to be the best available for gravel riding, but one with seamless aesthetics.

Handlebar, stem, and seatpost may also be painted blue/purple to match the frame for a seamless look to the cockpit.

Premier Bicycle Werks Painted Jordan’s OPEN U.P. RTP All Road

The way I ride road bikes has evolved with the way the bikes are being built. As I have moved away from pack racing over the past 10 years, I have desired more variety in my daily rides. Most of my rides involve sections of steep LA county fire roads or linking hilly neighborhood climbs together by zigging and zagging through hidden dirt paths.

With bigger clearance for a 27.5 x 2.4″ tire, fender mounts, double dropped chainstays, an updated geometry, and more, the new OPEN WI.DE is the rowdiest bike in their lineup. Check out this video as Gerard Vroomen and Andy Kessler take on the ripping trails around Basel, Switzerland.

OPEN and Yeti

“I have crossed paths a couple of times with YETI Cycles owner Chris Conroy. We both worked at Scott a while ago (ok almost 25 years…). Back then Scott was the owner of the Yeti- and Schwinn brand. YETI was just the coolest brand out there with a couple of legendary riders and great bikes.” Check out more at OPEN!

OPEN Introduces the U.P.P.E.R.

The OPEN UP is one of the most unique bikes on the market and now, it has a sibling. OPEN introduced the U.P.P.E.R. this week, a sportier, racier frame with flat mount disc, a different layup, which makes it lighter and a stealthier color. Yes, the U.P.P.E.R. is the meaner, leaner version of the UP but is not replacing its predecessor. It also features a new fork, the U-Turn. Find out more at OPEN!
