The WI.DE. complete bike is back!

Gerard Vroomen - 10-Sep-2020
Last Fall we did a batch of WI.DE. bikes with Force/Eagle AXS drivetrain and they sold out quickly. So by popular demand, it's back this month.

The basics remain the same:
  • The drivetrain is a Force/Eagle AXS combo. Light, reliable, 12-speed, electronic, what's not to like? The maximum range with a 10-50 cassette is perfect for all the crazy trails you can take the WIDE onto, and the Force parts are very close to their Red siblings and a fair chunk less expensive. Some of you may know that I actually prefer a slightly tighter range (SRAM 11-50 or the ROTOR 11-46 cassette). But since you will replace the cassette eventually anyway (and if you love the WIDE as much as we do, you'll rake up the miles quickly), you can always adjust down the line.
  • For the wheels, We went with DT Swiss again but more importantly, we will now offer both 700c (29") and 650b (27.5") options.
  • Stem, handlebar and seatpost all come from Easton. Nice parts, reasonably priced and not unimportant, the grey graphics match the frame perfectly. Standard road drop, just the way Andy likes it (and you know, he gets to choose).
  • Then maybe the most important part: tires! Lots of options here, but now that Schwalbe has good availability of the new range of Schwalbe G-One Allround tires, it was a pretty easy choice for us. The 700c wheels get the 700x45c version, while the 650b gets the 27.5x2.25" treads.
So here are the two versions. 700c (29"):



And 650b (27.5"):



Some more info from Andy:

 

We like it and hope you do too. If you're interested, don't wait too long as last year we had to disappoint quite a few people. If you order now, the bike will ship within two weeks.

When it comes to choose colour matching decals for the finishing kit, why not go the whole hog and spec it with wonderful Ultradynamico Rosé or Cava in the grey race version? No need to worry, the sidewalls are tan-coloured, of course ;P

No, we leave the steerer long. We recommend 40mm max total spacers on any of our bikes. The steerer can take more, but odds are you're on the wrong size if you need more.

hi Deus, the completely assembled WIDE is only available in grey. Right now it ships around 10 days after you order given how slowly logistics still operate in some parts of the world (but it really depends on where it ships to so could be quicker or a bit slower).

Yes, you can request but then we have to say sorry, can't do. But of course, you'll ride this bike so much that you'll soon wear out the tires and then you can put tan ones on there!

No? On what rim do you mount a 29" tire if not a 622mm one? Or put the other way around, starting at which tire width do you call it 29" instead of 28"? Remember, a 700Cx23 measures 26.3" actually, about the same as an 26"x2.1".

With regards to your size, it depends a bit on the distribution of that 5'4". My wife is 5'4" and rides the S, but there are also some with that height on the XS. Just send me a message with the contact form on the left and some info on what bike you currently ride (model, size, stem length, spacers under the stem) and we'll take it from there.

Hey Gerard, this is the exact question for my wife as well. We are looking to purchase either a Wi.de or an U.P. (small or x-small). What do you recommend? Using the same questions as you have above, my wife is 5'4" and currently rides a 52cm Trek Madone (v1), she has 38cm handlebars, her stem length is 90mm and her spacers are 1.5cm and a head tube length of 150cm so a total length of 165cm with the spacer. Does it make sense to go with a XS or S? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,
just compared the video and the close up pictures with the Spec Sheet and found out that on the Pictures and in the Video there is a 42 Chainring (40 on the Sheet) and the Eagle 1299 Rainbow Casette inkl Chain vs the 1275 in the Sheet.
So how does the Bike deliver?

Hi Gerard,
Just to be sure: As I understand you offer a complete built WI.DE and a ‘build it yourself kit’ of the WI. DE and UP(PER) with pre selected part. Or am I misstaken and are all option complete builts?
Because on the website you can choose different configurations of the WI.DE and UP.(PER). Next step is to choose between option for transportation like send the frame to a dealer and the parts to your home adress, or all to your home adress.

I have the original Open U.P kitted with Sram Red 2x12 (50-34) and (11-36) with Quarq power crank that I purchased from Heath at the 11 Inc in their bright blue swatch. I have used it as a single quiver bike option for a while but find myself using it more as a gravel bike more than anything as I use my Bianchi Otlre XR4 on the road. The gravel roads near my country home have grades that range from 6 to 24% and are undulating, and there are single track trails that cut off of these gravel roads which are often not climbable with my OPEN. I am finding the 2x system (although I have plenty of power in 34-36 to climb anything) to be tedious as the front derailleur moves slightly and rubs against my crank when the going gets rough. I am looking to go to a 1x system and debating between a new Open UP or the Open WIDE. I was leaning toward the WIDE with 650B. What is the CDN$ price?I was wondering if the complete build bike could come with a 42T or 44T (although I understand the 44T may be too close to the frame) quarq power crank. Also wondering if the bar could be changed to a 3T Superghiaia? Or do I build up an OPEN UP again? I would like to hear your thoughts.

Hi John, sorry for the delay. For the Canadian pricing, you're guaranteed best off to go via an OPEN retailer given the duties and shipping. I think you're in the GTZ, so Heath at the 11 Inc would be a good place to go and they can also customize the spec for you (although I know the Superghiaia will have a very long lead-time right now).
