Low// Bicycles MKII CX Frameset
Low Bicycles is a small manufacturer of high quality, handmade aluminium bicycle racing frames. Established in 2010 by Andrew Low, all of our frames are manufactured by hand in San Francisco, California, U.S.A.
The low mkii cx, their first production cyclocross frame, has been painstakingly thought out, designed and race tested over a two year period. For this project Andrew took the tube design one step further to maximize this frame’s performance; hand- tweaking the shape, tuning the thickness and butting of each tube to get just the right amount of flex and stiffness in just the right places. At the end of this process, we are confident we have produced one of the finest aluminum cyclocross frames on the market - hand built or mass produced. Developed directly from our mkI CX prototype, the mkII CX features several functional improvements and now comes standard with Disk brakes for that extra needed stopping power, and fully internal shifter and brake cables for reliable performance and a clean, streamlined look. Tire clearance was also improved, making the mkii cx increadibly versatile, allowing the frame to double up as a very capable gravel grinder.
Instead of following the cliché of making a more forgiving and stable bike for the road, they went the other direction, and made this frame even stiffer and twitchier than your average track bike to respond to the specific needs of racing a fixed gear bicycle in a criterium race. The result is one of the most aggressive racing bikes they built to date, ready to dominate in the particularly wild and wooly environment of today's single speed crits. To sum it all up, a stiffer frame with higher bottom bracket shell and strong special oversized aluminium tubings, what more can you ask for?
