DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK
We started Bassi Bikes in 2009 to be able to ride and build the fixed-gear track bikes of our dreams, and we wound up producing three editions of Montreal’s beloved Roma-Tokyo frame over the years. Twelve years later, we still love singlespeed bikes and we miss that first frame of ours.
Now, meet the Bloomfield: a track frame ready for how we ride in our cities. The same simple, elegant lines and fun, zippy ride as the Roma, with affordance for everything we love to have on our bikes these days. Call it a chimera of a track bike and a commuter: it’s even compatible with two different wheel sizes!
- Straight fork and agile geometry
- Forged horizontal dropouts in 120mm spacing, for real track hubs
- Front and rear rim brake mounts
- Hidden eyelets for racks and fenders
- Bottle cage eyelets
- Use 650B x 45mm wheels with long-reach brakes for comfort and chill steering
- Use 700C x 28mm wheels with mid-reach brakes for speed and quick steering
- 1" threaded fork for use with threaded headsets and quill stems
We look forward to seeing your Bloomfields with track drops and slicks one day and big tracklocross tires and racks the next!
