Returning to Minneapolis from my solo bike trip in Scotland, the last thing on my mind was riding bikes. Turns out pushing your fat bike through rivers, bogs and pouring rain for three weeks makes you want to never look at a bike again. I needed a break and I had planned on recovering by a lake for the rest of the summer. That is until I received an email that my new gravel adventure bike was ready in Bloomington, Minnesota.
Otso’s Warakin is their titanium all road and gravel bike with versatility in mind. This bike can be built to suit your needs from bikepacking to gravel racing and has the ability to tackle any road, all with a light and lively feel thanks to the 3Al/2.5V B338 grade 9 titanium. It’s durable, lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and timeless. Keep this bike for decades to come.
Wolf Tooth’s frame company Otso has carved a niche in the market by offering functional bikes with plenty of versatility built in. That ideology is embodied in their newest frame, the Waheela all road. While marketed as a ‘gravel race’ bike, there’s nothing keeping this bike from being a quiver killer, even for those who don’t race. Bikepack on it, use it as your road bike, and much more. With a tuning chip, massive tire clearance, 1x or 2x compatibility, there’s not much the Waheela can’t tackle. See more information at Otso and more photos below.
