PHILADELPHIA (BRAIN) — No. 22 Bicycle Company, a Toronto-based handmade titanium frame builder with a factory in upstate New York, announced its first line of stock bikes at the Philly Bike Expo over the weekend.
No. 22 has been offering custom frames since 2014 from its factory in Johnstown, New York, which was established by several former craftsman from Saratoga Frameworks.
Typically, the lead time for a new custom No. 22 frame is 8-10 weeks. The new stock lineup will make bikes available in two weeks.
The stock line includes three models: the Great Divide, the Great Divide Disc and the Drifter, each available in standard frame sizing. Customers can select the frame’s size, finish and other options.
The bikes all feature a No. 22 full carbon fork and aluminum stem, both custom painted by Velocolour, a No. 22 titanium seatpost, custom finished to match each frame, a complete Shimano Ultegra 8000 groupset with mechanical shifting, Reynolds carbon tubeless wheels and Schwalbe tubeless tires.
The frames are available in either a raw titanium finish or with two anodized options. The fork, stem and seatpost are finished to match. Anodizing is done in-house and paint is by Velocolour.
