BOTM: THINK BIG - RIDE SMALL - PART 2

Andy Kessler - 20-Dec-2019
Hope you enjoyed the video of our BOTM.

What I really like about OPEN is the fact that you get in contact with a lot of amazing people. Andrea and Jan in this video are only two of many- very many that I have met in the last 7 years. 

Most of the OPEN's out there are still based on a frame-set that then gets custom build into a very unique bike. For me it is often a source of inspiration to see what the end result is.

For the first time I will share 2 different galleries with detail shots of a size XS WI.DE.

Here comes  Andrea's "27.5" more kind of a trail bike setup and then next time a "29" gravel-allroad version based on the same frame.

 

Comments & Questions

Hey Open!
Should we expect to see in the future a new frameset by Open, called WI.DE.R?
A frame that can be a choice for those wo dont want to go wide 27.5, but wider 700c?
All the best!

we do have that option already on the WI.DE.. You can use up to 46mm on a 700 C wheel set. I think that should be enough no ?

No!
In my choice of 700C or 29er tires i consider tires up to 29x2.1 (Thunder Burt for example) ~ 700x51mm.
Currently using Furious Fred 29x2.00 kinda ~700x47mm
Do you have some link where i can spot a WI.DE. with 700x46mm installed, please!

Might as well be riding a MTB at anything bigger than 45m

Who makes the stem, bars and bar tape in these pics. It's really cool looking.
