Slowtwitch 12 Days of Xmas, A2 Bikes

Between Friday, November 29th and Monday, December 16th we will highlight a new product each week day as part of our Slowtwitch 12 Days of Xmas Gift Guide.

On the eighth day of Xmas we present A2 Bikes.

A2 (pronounced A-Squared) Bikes is a tri-specific bike company with a direct to consumer model and a mission to bring a performance-driven bike frame to market for a price competitors can’t come anywhere close to.

Unwilling to believe that bikes, like the ones he saw on the floors of his local shop, had to cost so much, A2 Bikes Founder AJ Alley used contacts he had from his previous business in Taiwan to introduce him to factories there.

It quickly became obvious to him he could offer a high quality performance frame that didn’t have to cost as much as what was currently on offer on the market.

The Speed Phreak is a solid, full carbon entry level bike that can be ridden with the baseline set of components or individually upgraded to your desire, like Kennett Peterson, a Kona-qualified pro triathlete and cyclist with numerous fastest splits and wins to his name aboard the Speed Phreak.

So if you’re looking for a frame to build a bike from the ground up with your own components or wanting to crack into the sport without breaking the bank, the A2 Bikes Speed Phreak could be up your alley.
