We recently visited the co-founders of gravel bike startup Thesis in San Francisco, California. Randall Jacobs and Alice Liu invited me to their downtown workshop to check out their new any-road machine and take it for a test ride. What became very clear early on is how their values, experience and interests have led them to build Thesis, a truly unique kind of bike company.
This week Thesis announces the opening of sales for their all new graphene-infused carbon wheelsets. Available in both Ultra-Wide Carbon 650B and Aero Wide Carbon 700C, the company claims to have brought a high end wheelset to serious gravel enthusiasts for a fraction of the price verses the competition.
Earlier this week Thesis Bike opened US pre-sales to the general public for their OB1, a high-end carbon gravel bike that claims to be the “one bike for every road”. Taking a direct-to-consumer approach, Thesis has worked directly with factories to deliver a highly attractive build starting at just $2999.
THESIS is a high-end direct-to-consumer bicycle company based in San Francisco, California. In 2018, the company is launching the OB1 “one bike for every road”. THESIS skips the middlemen and works directly with the industry’s top factories to create a customizable high-end carbon bicycle with carbon wheels starting at $2999.
