Low// Bicycles SS Crit
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.
SS Crit: first in it's class. As the ever increasing popularity of single speed, fixed gear criteriums continue to skyrocket and the competition continues to stiffen, the guys at Low Bicycles felt that the difference between racing on a banked velodrome and racing on a crowded, less predictable closed circuit criterium with flat turns was big enough to justify a purpose-built frame, distinguishable from a track bicycle.
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?
