You asked me to make up the best ever value gravel bike that has ever existed and that rides as good as any because it has adventure tuned geo and made in the same factory as well known brands. I don't have the over heads or marketing costs so I don't have to charge crazy prices for my product.
You wanted it in custom colours that made it stand out from the pack in events like Dirty Kanza 200.
Well I did my homework and found a factory that makes OEM frames for some BIG brands. Brands you see in the Tour De France. Brands you see selling frame sets for $4000. Have no mistake this is one of the TOP OEM factories you can use. He liked my business model - minimal margins and volume sales to budget minded cyclists who wanted top shelf quality at a price NOBODY else is willing to sell for. My Pragma Mawson frame comes from the same factory that make frames for Fuji, Merckx, Remot, Thesis, Stevens and Lapierre...
Lets me honest. Carbon bikes sell for WAY WAY too much these days. I can sell them this price because I don't spend a cent on marketing (I don't have to because my youtube channels have over 300 million views total). I don't have any staff. There is no shop front. There is literally no costs YOU have to pay me for. I can sell these volume sales (they have been walking out the door) so I make a small margin there for my time, the factory loves me and you most importantly get an incredible riding frame set for less than the price of 2 sets of over priced kits that ever fat dentist seems to be riding around in these days.
Im not going to sponsor any riders. Im not giving away any free frames to get promotions. I'm just creating the best fucking value carbon gravel bikes the industry has EVER seen and will ever most likely to see.
Please let me know if you can find a better QUALITY carbon gravel bike in CUSTOM colours, including shipping, PROVEN DESIGN and for just $699USD. Yes Im selling these close to the price I get them for.
Im not in this gig to make bank. I just genuinely want to bring great bikes from great factories to the end user who appreciates top shelf quality at a non pretentious price.
Now lets talk about what the Pragma Mawson is. It is a lightweight gravel frame set named after the iconic Mawson trail. Rides very similar to the Salsa Warbird. Maybe it came from the same factory? ;)
The Pragma Mawson has a BSA bottom bracket for user serviceable ease and a 27.2mm seat post so you don't have any aftermarket sourcing issues should you smash up a seat post out on tour sometime.
More info is coming on this bike. Stay tuned. Stock has been replenished so I can sell more.
Thinks to know. I can pretty much do any design you want. If you have an elaborate custom paint job you want then send it to me. It might be an extra 50 -100USD or it might not be. I will check with my factory and get back to you.
Specs: Flat mount disc brakes compatible.
50mm tire clearance (depending on what brand of tire and rim you are using)
Bottle/rack mounts on fork as standard but if you want just a normal fork that can be arranged. Same price for either.
27.2mm seat post comes with each order
Thru axles come with each order. 12x100 up front and 12/142mm rear.
BSA English type BB for durability and ease of removal/installation.
Getting a new bike means you have lots of questions. Email me email@example.com for any questions about my frames any time.
Things to know!
*You may have to pay import tax but it depends on your country. Most of the time you have to pay nothing but just be aware your countries custom may charge you a fee when the frame enters your country. If you have any issues with that or need an invoice just email me. So far nobody has had to pay any import taxes on my frames. Ive shipped to USA, Australia, Germany, Belgium, Israel, Canada, New Zealand, Japan and Brazil
*No paint job is 100% perfect. Out of the 100's of bikes Ive ridden if I have looked at sticker placement or paint finish there is always something I could have nit picked on. I have a pair of $7000AUD Lightweight Meilenstein wheels and they are literally buckled out of the box. That is right, the most expensive hand made wheels on earth are not even true and never can by because they are handmade.
*Please don't leave your bike parked in the sun or the back of a car. Even though the paint is very high quality and UV protected the sun can still damage carbon that is just baking in the sun. This is especially true for Australian conditions where the ozone layer is dangerously low. Australian customers please keep this in mind more. Ive seen a carbon wheel explode the tire off the rim because the owner parked the bike in the sun after a race.
*Please use torque wrenches on all carbon product and don't place carbon bikes in bike stands as the clamp can crack your seat post, top tube or seat tube.
*I don't recommend using ANY carbon bikes in trainers. Doesn't matter what brand it WILL damage your drop outs over time if you are putting out decent watts. Use magnetic resistance rollers instead as they offer better pedalling technique promotion and are more fun to use. Yes they require more skill but if Ruby Issac (google her) can use rollers then so can you! :)
*My frames come with headset and steerer plug. The plug is long enough if you don't use any spacers above your stem BUT if you plan to use spacers above the stem them PLEASE get a longer plug of at least 70-100mm. Colnago, Deda and FSA make these longer plugs and you can source them local or online. NEVER ride a bike with a carbon steerer that has such a shallow steerer plug that it does NOT go past the bottom stem bolt. You are just asking for trouble.
*Alloy steerer it doesn't matter because alloy doesn't crush like carbon does.
*NEVER clamp a carbon bike or carbon seat post in a workstand. I hang my bikes or clamp the seat itself. Carbon is strong but clamping can crush it pretty easily.
