3T Exploro LTD
In Cervelo’s heyday, Gerard Vroomen (co-founder) brought aerodynamics to the forefront of road cycling. Years later, Gerard is back at work (this time with 3T and OPEN) making bikes and riders faster. While true aero road bikes remain some of the most stunning examples of design to hit the road, more and more roadies are looking for additional adventure – be that rough roads normally avoided, dirt and gravel road races such as the Dirty Kanza, or challenging local singletrack otherwise limited to mountain bikes. Vroomen’s latest creation offers unprecedented wheel/tire versatility for a wide range of road conditions, in an aerodynamic frameset destined for the fastest rides. We offer this unique frameset in the form of the 3T Exploro Team Ultegra Di2 Complete Bike, ready to be built to your specifications. Following loosely in the footsteps of the OPEN Unbeaten Path U.P., the 3T Exploro features Gravel Plus technology, allowing one frameset to handle (and handle well) 700x28c road tires on Saturday, cross tires on Sunday, and big 650bx2.1? mountain bike or gravel plus tires for after-work laps on the trail. Where the Exploro differs from the Unbeaten Path is its on-road manners, where the 3T really excels. In their words, the Exploro is a mountain bike for roadies. It carves corners, handles out-of-saddle sprints, and offers unmistakable aero profiles for saving those much-needed watts. For those who want a great road bike to do group rides, gran fondos, etc, but also want to break off onto dirt and gravel, the 3T is about as good as it gets. Similar to our Open U.P. Unbeaten Path Ultegra Complete Bike, our 3T Exploro Team Ultegra Di2 Complete Bike offers a beautifully curated mix of components for those who would rather spend their days and nights riding, training, or anything-not-hand-picking parts for their dream bike. To match the sleak, aero profiles of the 3T Exploro, we’ve selected an electronic Shimano Ultegra Di2 group to handle shifting and braking (hydraulic Shimano brakes). Already a staple for cyclocross riders everywhere, we’ve chosen HED Ardennes Plus wheels, which work great for 700x28c road tires, up to 700x40c cross tires, and anything in between. Our 3T Exploro Team Ultegra Di2 Complete Bike is offered in one colorway – gloss White with Red accents. Whether you’re heading to Salt Lake City, or prefer we ship your new 3T Exploro bike to you, we’ll do a full, professional bike build, dialing in shifting and braking, truing wheels, etc. And although this is a “stock bike,” we are more than happy to discuss variations of this build (note actual bike may vary slightly from images. Please refer to tech specs listed below). If you’re unsure about sizing, give us a call during shop hours at 801.364.0344, or email us at info@contenderbicycles.com to talk through geometry and fit.

3T Exploro Team Gravel Bike Frameset
$2,999.99
With aero frame construction becoming common and the gravel category a more legitimate category, it was only a matter of time that this mash-up of speed and dirt became a reality. Italian accessory company 3T went all in with both aerodynamics and dirt to create the Exploro Aero Team frame. The white Team version has a frame weight of 1150g and comes in 3T team white with red logos. 3T did some real testing in the wind tunnel. At speeds around 20 miles an hour there was a seven watt savings. On asphalt sections when you’re rolling at 30 miles per hour 3T claims it will save you 24 watts versus a round tube frame. If you’re lining up at the Belgian Waffle Ride, the Dirty Kanza 200, or that epic all-day gravel adventure, those watts saved are a bonus.

All-City Macho Man Frameset
$650.00
All-City's Macho Man has been many things to many people — back alley bandit, CX shredder, all-round road runner — and now it's back for more fun, more comfort, more style, and in more sizes than ever. You get all the features that made Macho Man great in the first place, like a 612 Select chromoly frame and fork, disc brakes, double bottle cage mounts, plus hidden fender and rear rack mounts, but with size-specific wheel sizing to accommodate smaller frame geo's and flat-bar, laid-back comfort for cruising all day. Take it across town for happy hour, make it your full-time commuter, or prove your mettle in the next Bandit Cross event. This Macho Man's built for you.
All-City Gorilla Monsoon Frameset
$850.00

Call it a dirt road rambler, a monstercross masher, or an all-road adventurer — with the ability to carry all your gear to the ends of civilization and back there's only one thing left to do. Go. Like a storm across the land, let no obstacle stop you and the Gorilla Monsoon.
All-City Gorilla Monsoon Frameset
$850.00
Taking their love of riding drop bar bikes off-road to its logical conclusion, All-City presents you with the Gorilla Monsoon. A sweet beast whose only limits are your imagination and will power. They've taken the capabilities of their famed cross bikes and built a Monster. All-City's most densely featured bike ever, fully hitting everything on their checklist for a steed that can take you far into the unknown in comfort, style, and elegance. Want to do mixed pavement and single track rides? Put in long days off-road? Do some fire road touring? Camping? Ride across the continent? No problem. Peep the features: Front and rear thru-axles, front and rear rack and fender mounts, compatibility with Surly-8 and 24-Pack racks, stealth dropper post routing, 27.5 x 2.4” tire clearance (650b x 48 with fenders), signature All-City dropouts, E.D. coating for rust prevention, and three water bottle mounts. The Gorilla is made from All-City's 612 Select tubing and features a lovely bi-plane crown steel fork. They believe that nothing soaks up bumps or is as durable as a high quality steel fork. For on and off-road touring duties, it is the jam. Some of you will want to throw 650b x 47c’s in it and that’s cool. The resulting slightly lower BB gives the bike excellent manners when riding with a load and is fully endorsed by us. If you want to run a 700c tire the max is a 42mm tire which will raise your BB by 8mm. 700c x 38 keeps the BB about the same. As for building it up, there are three cable mounts on the downtube, giving you the option of adding a front derailleur or a dropper post. Here’s the max ring sizes for each setup: 1X = 38T, 2X = 28/42, 3X = 26/36/48.

Disc brakes, one gear, and tons of fun: the Nature Boy Disc is All-City's singlespeed cross machine.

All-City Macho Man Disc
$1,599.00
If your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad, the Macho Man Disc is your new best friend. It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of disc brakes to an incredibly durable 612 Select chromoly cyclocross frame and fork, as well as the ability to fit smaller riders with 650B wheel options on select frame sizes. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers, and commuters. All-City spec'd the Macho Man Disc with proven components that don't shy away from a little mud. The streamlined SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain gets you through the mud, over the barriers, and down the road on your daily commute. Sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in 700 x 33mm Clement MXP tires (650b x 41mm Surly Knard for the smaller folks) make short work of on and off-road rides and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide reliable speed control in all types of weather.

The frame is available in three versions: - The Classic U.P. with 3T Luteus II fork and post-mount disc brakes - The New U.P. with OPEN U-Turn fork and flat-mount disc brakes - The superlight U.P.P.E.R. with OPEN U-turn fork and flat-mount disc brakes Every U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. shares the same shape, geometry, intended use and most importantly: tire clearance. But they differ in layup, weight, fork, disc brake mounts, thru-axles and colour.
Open U.P.P.E.R. Frameset
$4,499.99
We custom build OPEN bikes to your specs. Call (651-644-2354) for full build pricing. For simplicity and to stay true to their focus on frames alone, Open Cycle offers their bikes as framesets only. This means that every Open bike you see being ridden is a fully custom build. There are a lot of fancy builds out there for the U.P.P.E.R., but in our experience we’ve found that most riders are just looking for performance and reliability within a reasonable budget. We enjoy walking our customers through every step of the part-selection process, but for cyclists who would rather spend time planning their next ride instead of picking out components, we’ve put together a complete OPEN U.P.P.E.R. build that we would be proud to ride. Introducing our OPEN U.P.P.E.R. Ultegra Bike. Because the U.P.P.E.R. is such a versatile bike that can be ridden on any number of surfaces, we’ve hand selected parts that offer reliable, powerful performance on road, cross, gravel, bike packing, and more. A detailed parts spec is listed below, but for the important stuff, we include a full Shimano Ultegra mechanical or Di2 11 speed group with Shimano hydraulic brakes. The cockpit features lightweight alloy handlebar, stem, and seatpost, from Fizik. For wheels, we’ve gone with two different options, both from Stan’s No Tubes. Stan’s is synonymous with tubeless wheel and tire setups, and their latest offerings combine a great blend of high quality, low-weight, easy setup and minimal maintenance. We’ve selected Stan’s Grail wheels for our 700c setup – they are a proven choice for cyclocross, gravel, or road riding. To accommodate the larger tires on the 650B setup, we’ve selected Stan’s Arch 27.5? mountain bike wheels. They’re still plenty light, but offer additional durability for rougher trails, and their extra width gives knobbies better bite and a smoother ride. Simply tell us what your favorite tires are and we can get an OPEN U.P.P.E.R. build going before your next epic ride. The OPEN U.P.P.E.R. Ultegra Complete Bike is available in four sizes, Small – X-Large (see geometry chart for details). It is available in the color Matte Black. Whether you’re heading to Salt Lake City, or prefer we ship your Open U.P.P.E.R. bike to you, we’ll do a full, professional bike build, dialing in shifting and braking, truing wheels, etc. If you’re unsure about sizing, give us a call or email us at info@contenderbicycles.com to talk through geometry and fit. And although this is a “stock bike,” we are more than happy to discuss variations of this builds.

Ritchey SwissCross Disc CrMo Frameset
$1,099.95
Many Ritchey-sponsored mountain bike champions were also cyclocross champions—Thomas Frischknecht, Henrik Djernis and Ruthie Matthes, to name a few. And though they were paid to race Ritchey mountain bikes, they often wanted a Ritchey cyclocross bike to race in the winter. This ultimately resulted in another iconic Ritchey model—the Swiss Cross. The Swiss Cross Disc blends this Cyclocross racing heritage with up-to-date geometry and tubing. And as always, the sweet, perfectly balanced ride that Ritchey is known for. We started with the same forged-and-machined integrated head tube design found on the P-29er—80 grams lighter than a standard 1-1/8" head tube and just as strong—a design which also provides much-needed shouldering room at the head tube. Tubing is an all-new triple-butted, heat treated steel designed to Tom's specifications for a classically lightweight, compliant, yet tough-as-nails frame. Geometry has been updated to reflect what 'cross riders want: race-ready handling and responsiveness that's still versatile enough to serve as a capable all-around rough road/trail bike. Tire clearance? Plenty. The Swiss Cross Disc is designed with 'cross racing in mind, after all. But with two bottle cage mounts, the Swiss Cross is perfect for long mixed rides in the off-season. - Handmade to Tom Ritchey's exacting standards - Updated modern sloping top tube Cyclocross geometry - Heat treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II CrMo steel tubing throughout - Forged and machined head tube with integrated cups for use with drop-in headsets – lighter and stronger than a standard head tube - Straight carbon steer tube with optimized layup for stiffness under braking forces without excessive harshness - Ritchey WCS Carbon disc cross fork, painted to match - Full-length housing stops for use with cable or hydraulic brakes - Front: 140/160mm rotor compatible; Rear: 160mm rotor compatibility - Post mount - Ritchey socket dropout - 135mm rear spacing - Room for tires up to 38c tires - Ritchey WCS headset included - 28.6 front derailleur clamp (Caution: Front derailleur clamp MAX torque of 2.5Nm) - Weight: 1960g / 4.32 lbs (55cm, frame only)

Manufactured from Surly's favored chromoly tubing, paired with a lugged chromoly fork, the frame is responsive, nimble, and showcases steel's inherent ability to damp road buzz. 650b wheels are a great 'tweener size for on and off-road adventures.

Surly Straggler 650b Frameset
$600.00
650b what? In the old days when randonneuring bikes ruled on long rides over mixed surfaces, the 650b tire size was perfectly suited for moving fast under control. Surly took this concept and applied it to the Straggler, a disc brake-equipped any-road type of bike bred from their revered Cross Check. The slightly smaller wheels accommodate smaller frame sizes and plump tire widths, creating options where few exist in this realm of riding. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.
Surly Straggler 650b Frameset
$600.00
We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real stuff was back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.
Surly Straggler 700c Frameset
$600.00
To brake or to disc brake? The debate isn't getting any colder and Surly decided it's best to let you choose. Straggler is bred from Surly's revered rim-brake Cross Check and comes out a lot the same, but also a little different with disc brakes being the obvious change. Frame geometry is pretty close, and you get all the attachment provisions for racks, fenders, and bottle cages that make these bikes something more utilitarian than a standard 'cross racer. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.

Surly Straggler Frameset
$600.00
So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that we added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked us to make a disc version of our highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though. The most obvious difference of course is that the Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too.

Surly Travelers Check Frameset
$1,099.00
Surly's Travelers Check is all about versatility. It can be built up as a singlespeed or a geared bike on 700c wheels, has room for fenders and fat tires and has bosses for racks. And that's not even the best part! The entire bike breaks down to fit in a standard, airline-approved suitcase thanks to the S&S couplers! The 4130 chromoly tubing provides a smooth and stable ride and the comfy, stable geometry takes everything you can give it on the road or off the beaten path.
