Wily Cycles Singletrack Retro frame 29er Hardtail

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $1400.00

Product Description

This frame is all about fun, but it has a serious side that shows when you need it. Riding a ledge at Moab, dropping down a wet and rooty chute back East, quick trip to the local coffee shop; this frame can handle it and still look good.

Strengths:    Great Fit, Great ride quality, Top quality fit and finish

Weaknesses:    NA

Bottom Line:   
When I first ordered this bike from Brad I told him my main goal was a bike, fun to ride for long days in the saddle, boy did he deliver. The finish and paint are incredible; everyone who sees the bike is blown away by its appearance. I’m the only one that truly knows how good a bike it is because its main strength is its incredible ride quality. The bike is perfectly balanced between nimble at slow speeds and stable at high speeds, smooth at the saddle and solid at the peddles. Brad suggested a different fit than I am accustomed too and it has worked perfectly for me. Brad knows 29”r geometry. Customer service is top notch I felt very comfortable and confident doing business with Wily.

Strengths:    Brad Seaman-he worked very hard to get everything right, because of that the frame was exactly what I wanted and rode even better that I could have imagined. This is a great bike, it is just unique enough to stand out, but still works great on every trail I've taken it on.

Weaknesses:    Long wait for frame, mis-sized EBB, but rectified very quickly by Brad

Bottom Line:   
Believe 29" is here to stay and I haven't ridden a better handling single speed ever. Comfortable, fast and stable.

Wily makes an awesome frame-great customer service from Brad.
