You did it. You finally found your dream bike. It has all the features you'd want, and it seems perfect for how you envision riding it. The only issue? Color. Maybe you're lukewarm on how it looks, and there's one nagging part that prevents you from truly loving the bike. Perhaps your friend already has a bike that color, and you'd never want to been seen matching someone else. Luckily for you, OPEN has a solution: the New OPEN U.P. Unbeaten Path Gravel Frameset (Ready to Paint). RTP, or "Ready to Paint", is the blank canvas of a bicycle that you deserve to build your dream bike.
As one of the premier gravel bikes available on the market, the U.P. easily swallows a 700 x 40c tire, or a 27.5 x 2.1" mountain bike tire. The U.P. can be used with more conventional 28mm road tires or cyclocross rubber up to 40mm wide - never before has a bike had this ability. The U.P. doesn't stop there; designed originally as a fat tire road bike, the U.P. features geometry that is uncompromised from its road bike roots, with smooth handling, peppy acceleration, and typical road bike fit. All you have to do is decide where you will ride it next, install the appropriate wheels and tires, then let the OPEN Cycles U.P. take you there.
Why choose the OPEN U.P. (Ready to Paint) frameset? Because you want to create a bike that is truly an extension of your style and taste, perhaps with the same desirability of the most beautiful one-off bikes around. We offer an inside line to custom paint, in any way you'd like it. Everything is done with a wet paint, even down to the 3T logo on the downtube. Custom paint for a single color and contrasting logo color starts at $350, in satin or matte colorways. Some examples can be seen HERE. With a wide array of paints in both gloss and matte, the color of your next U.P. is only limited to your imagination.
