BOTM: ASSOS-U.P.P.E.R. Limited Edition - part 3

Andy Kessler - 26-Apr-2017
And here we go with part 3 of the ASSOS-U.P.P.P.E.R. BOTM, our first limited edition of the new U.P.P.E.R. I have built  this bike for our showroom in Basel where OPEN fans can testride all our bikes by prior appointment. I am still waiting for the new Shimano-Durace groupset and meanwhile assembled it with a  mechanical Ultegra groupset. For the rest I have used all the fine parts that would mach the grey frameset.

As mentioned in my last post we are getting close to be sold out with the 40 frames we produced. Size Medium only one left and also other sizes move quickly now.

For those of you that missed the chance to get one of those limited frames, by the end of May we should have "Ready To Paint" framesets of the UPPER in stock also. Those frames and forks are ready for local custom painting.

Some examples of great paint jobs you can find in our showcase. If you are interest contact one of our official OPEN dealers.
