Gleam

Gleam

Classic Meets Modern

The svelte chromoly frame on the Gleam boasts a high-shine finish, internal cable routing, and aero fairings. Other classic details, like a 1” threaded quill stem, Panaracer tires, and Dura-Ace downtube shifters round out the Japanese design heritage. With a distinctive downward sloping top tube, it delivers a speed-optimized riding position, and with 650c wheels, it’s aesthetically balanced even in small frame sizes.

  • 650c wheels for beautiful and comfortable geometry at smaller frame sizes
  • Smooth welded fin brazing, with exacting attention to detail
  • Steel is real; chromoly frame with a hi-shine black finish
  • Lugged straight fork, with an elegant pointed taper
  • Retro-classic Shimano Dura-Ace downtube shifters
  • Downward sloping top tube for aerodynamics
