  • Way back in 2012 a bike on Bike Rumor caught my eye.  I had a read and look around their website and thought they were a little before their time in this daft market but they certainly had a good idea.  In 2015 I saw another article about their new U.P frame and fork and once I'd clicked through and had a read I was certainly sitting up and paying attention.

    I myself have moved into the realms of investing in one bike to do everything.  When customers ask me "what do you ride?" I can't say hand on heart "I'm a roadie" or "I'm a cross rider" or "mountain biking is my thing" as I do all of them to some degree.  As such over the last year my bikes have chopped and changed to reflect this.  I have a hardtail, I have a cross bike and I have a full suspension bike, but in all honesty it's only my cross bike that sees the light of day.  When I commute I put 28mm road wheels in it, when I signed up for the 3 Peaks Cyclocross I put 33mm cross wheels in it, and the only thing I miss is the option of a MTB wheelset for more comfortable thrashing around like my hardtail and a more relaxed geometry like a gravel bike for rides that aren't so short and intense.

    Enter the Open U.P into my life and all my issues are fixed!  This frameset provides 4 options in one for those of you like me - looking for the ultimate in versatility.  Someone clever did some maths and discovered that there's actually difference between 28mm road tyres, 32mm cross tyres, 40mm gravel tyres and 650b 2.1 tyres is very little when you look at the mm's measurement.  With some adaptive frame design Open have created this bike to fit all the above wheel / tyre sizes.

    With short chainstays this bike feels rapid regardless of what wheelsize you put in it and there's still plenty of clearance for those of you unlucky enough to encounter mud on your trails.  The geometry is relaxed like a Sportive or gravel bike rather than racey or twitchy like a pure race bred cross bike, so we've found most poeple at home straight away on these bikes.

    Available at present as a frame only we can build them up into your dream build but there are limitations currently in the market evolving around the BB / Chainset with it using a 386EVO (FSA's new standard) so contacting us is the best option at present regarding building up a frame.

    So if versatility really is the name of the game then the Open UP is what you've waited so long for.
