Product Description

For simplicity and to stay true to their focus on frames alone, Open Cycle offers their bikes as framesets only. This means that every Open bike you see being ridden is a fully custom build. There are a lot of fancy builds out there for the U.P.P.E.R., but in our experience we've found that most riders are just looking for performance and reliability within a reasonable budget. We enjoy walking our customers through every step of the part-selection process, but for cyclists who would rather spend time planning their next ride instead of picking out components, we’ve put together a complete OPEN U.P.P.E.R. build that we would be proud to ride. Introducing our OPEN U.P.P.E.R. Ultegra Bike.

Because the U.P.P.E.R. is such a versatile bike that can be ridden on any number of surfaces, we’ve hand selected parts that offer reliable, powerful performance on road, cross, gravel, bike packing, and more. A detailed parts spec is listed below, but for the important stuff, we include a full Shimano Ultegra mechanical or Di2 11 speed group with Shimano hydraulic brakes. The cockpit features lightweight alloy handlebar, stem, and seatpost, from Fizik. For wheels, we’ve gone with two different options, both from Stan’s No Tubes. Stan’s is synonymous with tubeless wheel and tire setups, and their latest offerings combine a great blend of high quality, low-weight, easy setup and minimal maintenance. We’ve selected Stan’s Grail wheels for our 700c setup – they are a proven choice for cyclocross, gravel, or road riding. To accommodate the larger tires on the 650B setup, we’ve selected Stan’s Crest 27.5″ mountain bike wheels. They’re still plenty light, but offer additional durability for rougher trails, and their extra width gives knobbies better bite and a smoother ride. Simply tell us what your favorite tires are and we can get an OPEN U.P.P.E.R. build going before your next epic ride.

The OPEN U.P.P.E.R. Ultegra Complete Bike is available in four sizes, Small – X-Large (see geometry chart for details). It is available in the color Matte Black. Whether you’re heading to Salt Lake City, or prefer we ship your Open U.P.P.E.R. bike to you, we’ll do a full, professional bike build, dialing in shifting and braking, truing wheels, etc. If you’re unsure about sizing, give us a call or email us at info@contenderbicycles.com to talk through geometry and fit. And although this is a “stock bike,” we are more than happy to discuss variations of this builds.
