No.22 Titanium Little Wing Track Frame
Some bike porn for you today about No.22, a young brand working with Titanium. First thing you’ll notice is the raw look. As the trademark classic look of titanium frames, the cold yet bold gradient of grey is quintessential to No.22 frames among others like Litespeed.
Sporting a beautiful full carbon fork (drilled or undrilled) with a Chris King headset inset 8, the frameset is priced at 2,500$USD. Made of 3AI-2.5V aerospace grade titanium, this frames is at the highest end of the technology we have.
Handmade in the USA and boosting a bespoke ENVE septets topmast clamp hardware, this frameset is eye-catching yet modest.
With sleek houded 1-inch long dropouts, the rear-end is all about track.
There’s no compromise for the road here, as the water jet cut brake bridge shows. Description on the website speaks of a Neil Young song : “All her friends call her Little Wing, but she flies rings around them all…”, we can but agree that this grandiose piece of machinery will be a beast on the velodrome.
Lightweight, the 54cm size weights in at 1780g, including seatpost and hardware. If you want to put your hands on one, Bikes on Wheels in Toronto is a dealer.
