Frostbike: Whisky gets deeper with new 50mm Rim, Adds Seatposts to the Mix
When Whisky Parts Co. isn’t working on cool thru axle carbon forks that companies like Foundry and All City can throw on the front of their bikes, they’re busy expanding their line of carbon components. Newest to the group are their 50mm No. 7 carbon rims and all new carbon seatposts.
Pour a 50mm deep glass of Whisky after the break…
First came the 30mm No. 7 carbon rims, and now they are joined by their 50mm cousins. Built from high modulus carbon fiber, the rims are built to be tough – do your worst whether it’s gravel, cross, or just monster trucking around, these rims can take it. Offered in 28h drillings, the rims are 25mm wide and clock in at 494g. Meant for clinchers and disc only, each rim will retail for $379.
Frostbike also marks Whisky’s entry into the seatpost market with their new carbon post with a bonded aluminum head.
Posts will be available in either a 0mm or 25mm offset head each with its own micro adjust system. Initally posts will only be available in 27.2 and 31.6mm diameters and in 350mm lengths for a retail of $95.
Bottle cages on a Whisky carbon fork? Yes, but only with a little help from Craig Calfee. Matt told us that they have been sending some forks out to have braze ons installed, and that Calfee has a new process that doesn’t drill into the carbon structure of the fork. Will Whisky offer this is the future? Who knows, but if you want it done now, you know who to send it to.
