I loved the LOW frames the first time I saw them and still do to this day. I see visual similarities with the CAAD10 frame design but with more of a sloping top tube. The fat tubes make it look aggressive.

Nice bike! But why is it in the Custom Bikes forum?

Nice, looks great. I really like to newly re-branded WCS stuff as well. I feel like I could just leave the graphics on the parts instead of removing them. Clean and understated, which i’m a fan of. Congrats on a rad bike!

Is the BB actually threaded or are you running an adapter?

Thanks!

I suppose I could have put it in the stock forum instead, but seeing as all LOW// frames are made to order (although without full custom tubing options) with "reg" and "tall" geo options for all sizes and semi-custom paint (logo designs are set, but color permutations are up to the buyer) I thought the "custom" forum was a better place for it.

Saw this bike in the latest Bicycling magazine. Looks even better in your pics than in the magazine. Love aluminum bikes for racing, that's why I've held onto my Spooky Skeletor all these years.

Really glad to see a new US-based entrant out there doing custom or even semi custom aluminum frames. Awesome stuff, and to the OP: your bike rocks.

Got a fit and had to make some minor adjustments to the cockpit:



Been racing it for a few weeks now and I can't rave enough about the stoke it brings me!

Sorry I missed this earlier: Yes, it is actually a threaded BB-- no need for an adapter.

17lbs as pictured. Could probably easily get down to 16 with carbon bars and light wheels.

Ride is pretty perfect. It is very planted, but still plenty quick to respond. I find it to be a steadier ride than my TCR and much stiffer. Big bumps are harsh but road chatter is surprisingly subdued considering the crazy stiffness and material.

Straight line speed? You mean like on a descent? Same as all of my bikes-- 50mph is about the fastest I can go on my local roads. Nothing steep or straight enough to go any faster than that.
