Spot pretty much answered our prayers when they decided to make the Wazee, an all-cromoly urban bike with Carbon Drive, Alfine 11, disc brakes, and Schwalbe tires. Their copy for this bike has a lot of history and geography to it, so we’re going to let Spot do the narrative on this one, pasted in below. But first the basic facts: $2199, available late August, preordering now with 60% down, sizes 49, 52, 55, 57, 60. Geometry and specs. Good with racks (front and rear), fenders, kickstands. Our customizations can include dynamo systems, drop bars or other bars, and many other variations. Now on to the story and the history: Style, Precision and Panache In the spirit of Colin Chapman, the brash auto racing entrepreneur who created the Lotus 38 that won the 1965 Indy 500, we present the Wazee—a city bike that blends modern technology with retro racing aesthetics. The sleek and streamlined steel frame delivers the classic ride characteristics and road-feel that bicyclists prize. And with its Lotus-inspired Chapman green (of course) color scheme, the Wazee handles city streets with precision and panache. Our Wazee is the newest member of the Spot family but its heritage runs deep. Wazee Street is one of Denver’s most storied thoroughfares, the epicenter of LoDo and beating heart of Mile-High commerce and culture. Anchoring the bike is the most innovative drive system available: a CenterTrack belt drive that motors fast and quiet, lap after lap after lap. Colin Chapman would be proud.
