Thanks to Lindarets, riders in the U.S. will now have a new option when it comes to titanium. Based out of Mallorca, J. Guillem is the work of Jan-Willem Sintnicolaas – the same Jan who founded Van Nicholas Titanium. That gives Jan nearly two decades of designing titanium frames, something that’s apparent when you look at the detail of the J. Guillem frames.
Details like the one piece cast bottom bracket and chain stay yoke that results in a stiff junction with clearance for up to 700c x 40mm or 27.5 x 2.1″ tires on their Atalaya gravel bike. The Atalaya will be the first model imported through Lindarets, with the Orient All Road and Tomir MTB to follow.
Other beautiful details include a cast tapered head tube with integrated cable port, and lo profile flat mount brake tabs in a 3D-Cast 12 x 142mm thru axle dropout. For utility, the frame features removable fender and rack mounts.
Designed and engineered in Mallorca, and built in Asia from seamless aerospace grade 3Al/2.5V titanium, the frame features internal cable routing and a brushed titanium finish.
The Atalaya itself is a gravel bike built with race inspired geometry in four sizes (52, 54, 56, and 58). Currently available as a frame from Lindarets for $2,325, or a frame set with ENVE G-Series Fork & Headset for $2,750. Complete bikes will eventually be available with SRAM Force 1 builds starting at $5,375.
