The UG is our Ultra Grav Grav Kitchen Sink 650b Gravel bike built for adventure groading and fast off roadin. This Groadinger is 12 spd ready frame for 1X or 2X and has a choice of Ritchey or Whisky carbon fork for packing up or packing light but never packing in. The UG is made with flat break mounts, external cable routing, Di2 option and custom sizing available. Like our OG it is constructed from beautiful Columbus tubing with stainless fittings. Load up and ride into the sunsets of your mind (yum) or rip it up down the groad less rode. However you roll you're gonna want a UG as your friend in the wilderness.
All of our Groadinger frames are made in small batches in our Leytonstone workshop. We endeavour to make a few more than have been pre-ordered to keep a small stock of frames ready to go to paint, but it doesn't always work that way.
If it's in stock below and you want it, do it, it's yours! Pick your finish, we will paint it and send it and BOOM new bike day has arrived.
If what you want isn't in stock - and let's be honest we are the tiny guys so this is a possibility - have no fear! do not be downhearted! the best things etc etc. Just check the next build date and get in your pre-order. You are patient and will be rewarded.
Beware! some of the more popular sizes will sell out before dates go on the site. Check the social, newsletter or get in touch for the next batch dates and build numbers to ensure you get in on the thing.

OPTIONS, OPTIONS, OPTIONS.
So! We have a few options and if this is the bike for you I hope you will be into them. We offer all of our Groadingers with a carefully selected aftermarket carbon fork (like you might select your honey mangos in June perhaps - if you know you know). Either super stiff or that, plus carrying potential or mudguard eyes etc. Basically we have made a poke at the best option for the frame. The price you see is an all in BUT!! if you are into something else then get in touch and we will see what we can do... your bike, right?
For the UG we have two fork options for your delectation! Either the Whisky RD+ fork which is a monster stiff thru axle fork made for fast 650b riding into the sunset. Or the Ritchey ADV fork with great tyre clearance, mudguard mounts and Ritchey specific IMPPP - which is integrated multiple potential portage points for those who dont know - and believe me when I say that everyone with a PP wants P in their PP especially if they are IMPP.
We also have a package deal - obvs - as J, our mega wheel builder, would love to shoe your steed with some swag wheels. Check out the options for Gravel wheels on the corresponding page or check the world for some great reviews and the super nice people who ride them, they are out there and they are lush.
We can also hook you up with a full build but for now you're going to have to get in touch about that one as we haven't made a thing to show you prices. We work with the highly esteemed Clever Mike bike shop for most stuff. They are great and very capable indeed BUT! we also work with other bike shops and if you want we will have a go at searching out some good recommends in your area as everyone needs a good bike shop - use 'em or loose 'em folks.
The UG is designed for longer days in the groading seat. Great for mixed terrain riding and longer adventures in the great outdoors. At home either on or off the road the UG is built for speed, grav grav mile munching and bivvy/dangle mug realness.
We have deliberated long and hard over the geo numbers - in fact we worked on this with a specialist, Tim from Soigneur Bike Fitting - the result is a gravel bike optimised for longer days in the saddle while not compromising on the ride. We have tried to set up the sizes to cover most people, however, everyone is different.
Have a look at the table below to see which size is best for you, if you think you need custom geo be sure to get in contact with us and we can certainly try to sort something out. Remember! We make everything in small batches or as individual frames. One of our OTP sizes could be great or spending a little extra on custom might be the way to go if you're an overlapper.
Get in touch if you think you might want to go for a custom size and we can give you the low down on what to expect. Or if you're in our neck of the woods you can contact Tim through his website via the link above and ask advice on the best frame size for you.

Custom sizing is available at an extra cost of £250 on pre-orders only for obvious reasons. Please purchase a pre-order frame package and get in touch with bike fit information.*
*then we will get in touch with a payment link for the remainder
Pre-Orders are 50% deposit upfront with the rest payable when your frame is ready to paint. You can change your mind up to the point of painting for standard sizing only with a small cancellation fee of £30 to cover bank charges and admin up to that point - we understand things can change between now and then and we don't want to put you in a spot. Please however don't put us in one and only pre-order if you intend to follow through as the amount we can produce is very limited and building a pre-order frame for you will mean someone else is possibly having to wait until a later build date.
If you need something more specific then please get in touch.
We aim to reply to you within one working day.
