BIXXIS: Hand Built Italian Road Bikes for the 21st Century

The Fronda is the realization of how BIXXIS imagines a gravel frame: The instinctive desire for adventure and the freedom to live adventures in real life, are combined with Bixxis’ race identity.

The Fronda's geometry is carefully engineered in every detail, and ensures optimal performances on all types of road. The custom shapes of the chainstays and seatstays allow for tires up to 38mm wide as well as a flat mount disk brake system.  Meanwhile the shape of the semi-slope frame enhances esthetics, functionality and style.

Throughout the Fronda displays Bixxis' sense of aesthetics and attention to detail, as exemplified by the brazed logo under the bottom bracket shell. Colors and components are fully customisable.

Chris King InSet 8 Headset

Contemporary bicycle frame designs are incorporating larger diameter headtubes and forks with tapered-steerers to improve the bike’s front end stiffness, and as a result handling accuracy. This move has made particular sense for off-road bikes. We evolved the form and function of our legendary NoThreadset to address the variety of tapered steerers and headtubes on the market today.

Every Chris King headset is built with our heat-treated bearings, and surgical-grade steel races machined simultaneously to ensure they are perfectly matched. As Chris King bearing tracks age and burnish, they actually get smoother, and all headsets are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding riding.

Built for the next generation of tapered road forks the Chris King InSet™ 8 is built to fit contemporary road and cross bikes that utilize 1-1/8” to 1-1/4”tapered steerer tubes and a 44mm headtube. Our InSet™ 8 combines our exclusive Chris King built bearings and our GripLock® retention system for unequalled riding quality.
