If you’re looking to get off grid in comfort, the all-new Wilde Dream Engine adventure drop bar bikes come in steel and titanium frame options with enough mounts and tire clearance to take you anywhere.
Designed to tackle the Tour Divide, both framesets come with a Salsa Cutthroat carbon fork with three-point mounts on both legs, which leads the way to plenty more storage on board.
Both bikes comes with a hand-crafted Jen Green headbadge, normally a $120 add-on feature. The steel Dream Engine gets a tapered head tube…
…and the titanium model gets a straight 44mm headtube, which allows for any tapered steerer to fit.
They use Paragon Machine Works cable clamps to run brake and drivetrain lines externally, allowing for 1x and 2x setups. Only the dropper post routing goes inside the frame.
Three bottle cage bolts sit on the top and bottom of the downtube, and the seat tube gets two bolts.
Rear rack and fender mounts are on both, with the Ti frame using shielded thru axle dropouts.
The Ti bike also gets a more intricately matchined chainstay yoke, but both bikes fit massive 29×2.6″ tires. That means longer chainstays than a standard gravel bike, but gives it better stability when fully loaded. They say the overall geometry makes it nimble enough for spirited riding, but it’s focus is on longer, bigger adventures.
The steel frame uses flatter dropouts but adds a second mounting point.
The steel Dream Engine gets wet paint and runs $2,600 with fork, complete bikes available with custom builds upon request.
The Ti Dream Engine gets a Cerakote fade finish and runs $4,900 with fork. Available now.
