We met up with Dan Dittmer of Wolf Tooth Components and Otso Cycles at the 2018 Sedona Mountain Bike Festival for a key feature walkthrough of their new Otso Warakin Gravel Bike. The Warakin, named after a wolf-like creature of Native American mythology, has some very impressive features and is highly customizable.
Dan describes in detail their patent pending Tuning Chip system that provides 20 mm of chainstay length adjustment and subtle changes to the bottom bracket drop and head tube angle. The Warakin is a unique TIG welded stainless steel gravel bike that has has the benefits of corrosion resistance similar to titanium, with the ride qualities you would expect from a chrome-moly frame.
Key Features we love
- Brushed finish stainless steel with bead-blasted logos
- Numerous braze-ons to accommodate up to 3 water bottles, fenders, racks, frame bags, and more
- Fox AX Gravel Fork lockout with the front shifter (found on this custom build)
