New Milwaukee Road Bike!

We have had more and more requests for our Milwaukee Orange One with geared drop outs that it was time to follow through for our customers.

We worked with Waterford Precision Cycles to create a frame that would ride as well as our original Orange One. When we starting talking about it, I came to the conclusion that there was only one right answer...don't change a thing! Same True Temper Verus tubing, frame geometry and sizing; but with the cable stops, Tom Ritchey dropouts and 130mm rear spacing, all for around $600. As with all of our frame purchases; you'll receive 20% off all build parts to get it rolling

There's plenty of room for 28c tires and you'll still have space left over (pic) for 35mm fenders. If you went with the optional cantilever bosses for cycloX, a big 32c nobby will fit just fine (even a narrow 35c).

Keep and eye out right here for more info coming soon!

Wow, I can't wait to see more info on this one...The color on frame in the pics is great. Is that going to be standard?

Thanks! We have had a lot of good responses with this color; so there is a high probability that "atomic orange" will be the base color.

Do you have any more close up photos of the bikes. I'm interested in seeing how the black decals look up close with the atomic orange color. The frame and geometry was well thought out. This is a frame that most people should be riding. Not racing. Not touring. Just a good around bike.
