Mosaic Bespoke Bicycles is lowering the barrier to getting on a handcrafted titanium road bike. The new RT-2 small batch frame program will see them producing stock sizes of their core ti road bike, and offering it as a frameset or a in a single complete bike spec, bringing down both pricing and wait times.

The small batch frame concept aims to deliver the same high quality, made-in-Colorado titanium frames even quicker to buyers looking for a premium road bike, just at a lower price. Now with a lead time of three weeks (vs. six weeks for a full custom bike), Mosaic can deliver an RT-2 road frame welded from 3/2.5 straight gauge and paired to an ENVE Road 2.0 fork.
Mosaic builds the road bikes from size specific tubing, and offers a wide nine-size range from 48-62cm, still delivering an appropriate fit for the vast majority of riders. Between the years building custom frames and working with their retail partners, Mosaic says they’ve dialed in snappy handling, endurance geometry, and developed a performance spec that’s hard to argue with.
The small batch RT-2 frames feature a straight 44mm headtube to use an InSet headset to work with the 1.25-1.125″ tapered steer of the Enve fork. The rim brake frame sticks with a trusted 68mm threaded bottom bracket, a 27.2mm seatpost, traditional external cable routing, and will clear a 28mm road tire.
Pricing & Availability
The frameset alone retails for $3,600 with frame, Chris King headset & ENVE fork.
Complete bikes in the small batch program are available in a single build with a new Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset, Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels, and 25mm Mavic tires. The complete RT-2 small batch build rounded out with a Fizik Cyrano R5 bar, stem & seatpost, and an Antares Versus saddle retails for $5,850.
Both stock framesets and the complete build are available now through Mosaic dealers with a three-week lead time. Still want custom? Check out some of their new options from NAHBS here.
