Budnitz bicycles alpha frame

ALPHA features our featherlight, high performance FlyLite™ cantilever frame geometry in custom extruded and hydroformed aluminum. It’s paired with a carbon fork for quick, precision handling. Custom internal cable routing and 3D Cnc’d rear dropouts. Remarkably lightweight yet supremely sturdy for all conditions a serious rider will encounter logging miles (or kilometres).


Budnitz bicycles alpha 8speed

ALPHA base build comes equipped with a trigger-shifting Shimano Alfine 8-speed internally geared hub with a 307% gear range, upgrade to the Alfine 11 or Rohloff 14 for the benefits of a wider range and no extra weight. The Gates Carbon Drive is silky smooth, virtually silent, and lasts twice as long as a traditional chain. Never derails and eliminates messy grease.
