If you’re familiar with WebbWorks out of Traveler’s Rest, SC, you know them for their custom builds with bamboo tubes and carbon fiber lugs. While the next evolution of their frames still include the carbon lugs, those bamboo tubes have been replaced with carbon tubes as well, to create their first full carbon build.
And when WebbWorks calls it full carbon, they mean almost entirely carbon thanks to their use of 3D printing. Rather than use off the shelf parts for their dropouts, brake mounts, and more, WebbWorks is 3D printing individual molds for the carbon pieces out of alumide. This full carbon project has been in the works for about 18 months, and it finally made its public debut at the Philly Bike Expo.
This bike is the very first full carbon build WebbWorks has ever done, so Phil Webb mentioned that they’re still working on the tube characteristics and finalizing the build process. Each frame will be full custom and they can build whatever you want, though this bike was a gravel build with a PF30 bottom bracket, internal cable routing, and flat mount disc brakes.
Expect the full custom frame with a carbon fork to sell for around $4,600.
And since bicycles run in the family, WebbWorks was sharing booth space with Spare ride essentials which is run by Phil’s son. The simple packs have a clean aesthetic and are made with an X-Pac or Dyneema material outer and water resistant treated nylon interior and YKK zippers. Offered in either Seatpack (small and large) or Jersey packs, the Seatpacks include an extra wide webbing strap to hold them in place on your saddle. The Jersey pack is designed without straps and meant to stash in your jersey pocket or inside another bag.
Pricing starts at $26 for the Jersey Pack, $36 for the small Seatpack and $40 for the large Seatpack.
