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.

Open U.P.
The 3 members of the U.P. (Unbeaten Path) family all combine a road riding position with clearance for mountain bike tires. Get out of town on asphalt, hit the gravel roads or switch to singletrack. Your position gets you there fast; the big tires make you unstoppable. 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.
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.
Surly Cross Check Frameset
$500.00
Surly's Cross Check is one of the most versatile framesets going and ready to be built into a commute-conquering, backroad-exploring, 'cross-riding machine. Finely crafted of TIG-welded chromoly tubing with a lugged chromoly fork and all the braze-ons to run racks, fenders, and bags, this frameset handles like a champ and smooths rough roads with vibration damping and compliance. From commuting to work, to exploring your local trail network, to lining up for the next cyclocross race, the Cross Check is ready for it all.
Surly Cross-Check Frameset
$500.00
There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check comes mighty close. It's a cyclocross bike by design, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it has only one purpose. This jack-of-all-trades will do just as well getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. At home on the road, on trails, and on gravel, the Cross-Check'll fit pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed, or a fixed-gear. The Cross-Check’s frame is engineered to supply a comfortable but lively ride. The tubing is CroMoly steel, high quality, custom-drawn, and built to our specifications. It's designed to work with components of popular sizes, meaning you can find both new and old parts to hang on this frame. It will accommodate a wide range of crank types and chainring sizes. It's got accommodations for racks and fenders (front and rear) and, because of its ample tire clearance, you can outfit it to suit where and how you will use it. There's a reason the Cross-Check has remained popular after all these years. The frame is comfy, tough as nails, and super versatile. Surly continues to hear from people for whom the Cross-Check has long been their go-to bike simply because it performs so astonishingly well on any surface.
Surly Straggler 650b Frameset
$575.00 - $600.00
See that fire road? How about that gravel grinder you've always thought about doing? Surly's Straggler is just the steed you need to explore all the backroads and sideroads. 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. It also has clearance for 42mm tires, a full set of rack and fender eyelets, and custom rear dropouts that let you ride the bike singlespeed or geared. Plus, disc brake mounting tabs ensure that you'll have tons of all-weather, all-terrain stopping power.
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. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains.

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. Disc brakes are the obvious change though, and the Straggler sports Hayes CX Experts with 160mm rotors front and rear. The athletic character continues with a SRAM Apex 2x10 drivetrain, giving you a useful gear range for any type of riding you can dream up, and continues with 32-hole alloy Alex XD-E Lite rims wrapped in Surly's own super-versatile 700c x 41 Knard rubber. A Salsa Cowbell handlebar is great for riding on mixed terrain, too, giving you a bit more control when it's loose while retaining comfortable positioning for cranking into the wind.

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. - Fender eyelets at the dropouts, front and rear rack bosses and dual water bottle mounts, downtube shifter mounts - 100% Surly proprietary 4130 chromoly tubing. TIG-welded, double-butted main triangle - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts with adjusters give you singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability to help you fit the tires and fenders you want to run with that drivetrain you want to run. - Frame is ED Coated for increased life expectancy
Cannondale CAADX 105 SE

With the same geometry and fit as its big brother, SuperX, the CAADX delivers awesome traction, stability, and handling. It’s also a perfect pit bike for new SuperX owners. OutFront Steering Geometry offers drama-free stability on technical courses and potholed streets but maintains quick-handling agility everywhere else. SmartForm C2 Alloy Construction and CAAD12-inspired tube shapes keep it light and easy to shoulder, while SAVE micro-suspension helps you track smoothly through the rough stuff. Subtle rack mounts, a removable seat stay fender mount and hidden fork fender mounts expand its usability without affecting its racy looks. A tough, reliable 2x11 Shimano 105 drivetrain gives you solid shifting, while the Tektro cable-actuated disc brakes keep you in control whether you're on a muddy 'cross course, a wet commute, or loose gravel roads. The all-terrain WTB ST i19 wheels and 37mm tubeless-ready Riddler tires are just as versatile are ready-for-adventure.
