New Bixxis Fronda frameset

The new Bixxis Fronda gravel frame embodies our idea of gravel: an instinct for adventure and the freedom to live offroad, are combined with Bixxis’ race identity. The geometry is studied in every detail, and ensures high performance on all types of road. The customised shapes of the exclusive Bixxis X-Stay chainstays and seatstays allow the use of both tires up to 38mm and a flat mount disk brake system, while the shape of the semi-sloping frame adds consistency, functionality and style.

The Fronda stands out for its aesthetic attention to detail, such as the brazed logo located under the bottom bracket shell. Colors and components are fully customizable.

Frame features:
Material: Steel
Tube sets: Columbus Spirit with custom chainstays
Construction method: TIG welded
Geometry: Custom made (sloping or traditional)
BB Shell: Italian threaded 70mm
Seatpost diameter: 29.4 mm
Front Derailleur style: clamp-on, 32 mm

Retail for the Fronda frame with Enve All-Road carbon fork is $3000. We will have a complete Fronda to view at NAHBS in August.

Velo pal, please don't get me wrong, I like you a lot...

It's like Popeyes chicken saying we are rollin' out a new chicken sandwich but sorry, we can't tell you anything until it becomes public. Here I am thinking to my self, I have been showing up faithfully every Tuesday for the last 6 years at the window to get fried chicken at popeyes. The least I would expect in return for my loyalty is a chance to sample their new recipe...

How could you come to Paceline, which we all know is THE place where all bike connoisseurs gather together, and tell us you gonna bring a new model to the bike show and not give us a glimpse or some pictures?

Where's the chicken sandwich??!

I'm glad it's a chicken sandwich. I don't like tuna. As long as it's not a chicken salad sandwich. Not a fan of those either.

The plan was to announce a new frame at NAHBS. We are working on an announcement in the next week since NAHBS has been postponed. So stay tuned for the New Bixxis ******.

Yes. It was gravel. And steel. And disc. BUT, since it's custom, if you wanted a traditional road geometry for 35's to ride on the road, this will do it.

Yes. I will be at NAHBS in August for Bixxis and Grandis. There may be two other frame companies there are well I handle. Just finalizing things now and rearranging booth spaces.

I really like panel designs, and I love orange bikes. So this is super hot for me. I like that the metallic silver graphics look like bare metal.

The colors are actually Kenworth Truck colors by Axalta (formerly DuPont Paint).
Here are the colors:
Mocha Frost Effect / 750137 EB (panels color)
Dark Brown Effect / L0223 EB (main frame color)
Orange / L0894 EB (inside stays & rings)
Jet Black / RAL 9005 (panels graphics)

The Mocha Frost and Dark Brown both have metallic added to it. The first three colors all had to be converted to RAL colors. So they were custom mixed by our painter.
