BOTM: U.P.P.E.R. C.L.A.S.S. - part 3

Andy Kessler - 24-Mar-2017
Here we go with part 3 of our Bike of the Month. In part 2 we showed you for the first time pictures of a complete assembled U.P.P.E.R. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback to this gallery and the launch in general. 

It has been almost a month since we launched the U.P.P.E.R. during our CrossFondue event. But it feels much longer. We are working hard to keep up with the demand. We can fulfill all existing orders but expect some shortages over the  next couple of weeks. We try to have them back in stock in an acceptable time frame.

We have more BOTMs with the U.P.P.E.R. frame in the pipeline for inspiration over the next couple of months.

Here we go with the details specifications of this black beauty.

Most Campy cranks don't fit. Some do. We'll show some options in one of the upcoming BOTMs, just waiting for some parts from Campy to double-check.

Hope my order made the cut! It's been almost two weeks since I put money down on it.

Nice build. Can I add a SRAM 10-50 Eagle cassette and chainring with road bike shifters. I'm looking for a configuration with up to 500% gear ratio

a couple of quick of quick questions for you. i ma 265 lbs and looking at the UP. Am I too heavy for the carbon frame. want to buy a frameset that lasts forever. Also i hear people say wheels and tires are very important when it comes to supporting the frame, however most have weight limits too. Should I be concerned with those limits as well? used to ride custom steel frameset w no limits. planned riding is primarily road (chip seal) and some gravel / path. no real hard trail riding. Your thoughts please

This is such a gorgeous bike. I love those lines of the seat stays merging at the seat tube. Chapeau!
