CURRENT LEAD TIME: 4-6 Weeks for framesets or complete builds

Fine tuned handling to be equally at home on quiet meandering ribbons of crushed gravel or the chunkiest washed out Jeep trails. Progressive yet comfortable angles so you can cruise all day or get on the rivet when there’s a need for speed. The Sauce is the perfect companion for all your spicy gravel adventures

8 stock sizes for the smallest and largest humans and everything in between. Want an even more precisely fitted bike? Custom stack, reach, and head tube length for just $200.

Adjustable dropouts are standard for a tuneable chainstay length. Slide them back for stability on the long and loaded days or confidence in the deepest chunder. Slam ‘em forward for fast rides and saucy singletrack. When things get really wild and you lose that dangly bit on the back, you can pick the best gear to finish out the ride instead of calling search and rescue. For those of us who prefer to ditch the danglers all together, no tensioners or eccentricities needed. We're happy to talk single speed gear ratios, lets go down that wormhole.

Flexible external/internal cable management for the cleanest looks with 2x mechanical shifting, droppers post, wireless shifting or single speed systems with no unused ports to keep more water and crud out of your frame.

Two bottles inside the main triangle on every size, and a 3 pack on the underside of the downtube are included standard. Add as many bottle and cargo cage mounts as you like, $30 per pair. Loading your bike and getting out there is incredible. Frame bag templates are free, we have a few local makers that can have full or half bags ready when your bike is, with a variety of options to put together a matching set. The Jack's Sacks Frame Sack is our favorite, we'll include a bolt-on version with all the mount points for $250

Want to get out in the world? We offer travel couplers for the Sauce using the Ritchey Break-Away System. Add couplers to the frame for $500, and we can include Ritchey's custom suitcase for $300. 

We powdercoat our steel frames for eco-friendly and affordable durability. The Rose Chrome stock color is included in the price. If you’d like a custom color or fancier paint, let’s talk about it! Different color powder coats options start at $100 and wet paint options start at $400

A frame with seatclamp, dropout inserts, and axle is $1799 and made to order, expect a 3-4 week turnaround.

Got some parts but need some others. We're happy to work with what you've got. Framekits, Wheelsets, Drivetrains, and Cockpits are all available a-la-carte.

Complete Bikes are available in every variety you can imagine. We have an in-house pro bike shop that can make your wildest custom builds a reality. Complete bikes start at $3599, and require a deposit of $2000 to get in the queue. Lead time varies depending on build options, but we aim for 4-6 weeks.
