REPETE G2: Verne - Gravel Bike (Frameset)
Steel Gravel Bike Frame
The Verne is REPETE's uncompromising gravel offering. The ideal machine for ripping through the rough streets of NYC and getting lost in the woods. This fast, nimble and durable gravel bike is the perfect option for enjoying the Northeast's vast network of hardpack gravel roads.
The Verne, REPETE's all-terrain gravel model is a fast, comfortable, and maneuverable bike for convenient and agile riding on any surface. Clear the boundary between road and trail riding and let the hour journeys turn to day trips. The frame itself is made from high strength Columbus Spirit HSS steel, which gives this bike the most essential characteristics – perfect rigidity, long life, and unique comfort. The technical details determine the nature of our products and their design is based on function. The 44mm head tube and T47 bottom bracket ensure ideal energy transfer.
REPETE developed its stainless steel flat-mount dropouts to accommodate the use of disc brakes and thru axles. The internal cable routing is compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting. The shaped rear stay provides a large variability of tire clearance – up to 700×40c or 650×47c. A more comfortable stack/reach 1.55 geometry makes it possible to spend an entire day in the saddle with ease. The Verne can be selected in two stock paint colors or custom paint, and six frame sizes.
REPETE was founded in 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic by young entrepreneurs Mikoláš Voverka & Robin Fišer. The two cycling enthusiasts were passionate about the Czech riding scene, and were inspired by cycling culture's retro aesthetics of the 70's and 80's. The two riders began refurbishing old steel friends for frames, but knew deep down that they dreamed of creating their own frames and brand. At the time, Fišer was studying at the Czech Technical Institute and began refining his skills as a welder and fabricator.
Through their mission of fabricating their first frame, the pair was supported by other members of the Czech manufacturing community, including Fišer's professors at the Czech Technical Institute and other experienced craftsmen from nearby Czech workshops. The celebrated Czech manufacturing community rallied around their pair early on and volunteered their time to weld and fabricate smaller parts needed to complete the frame.
Midway through the 2010's, the duo traveled to NAHBS with their first frame, a steel road bike dubbed Reborn, which was awarded the prize of Best Road Bike in 2015. Today, REPETE's frames are noted for their precise and smooth welds, timeless paint schemes and luxe ride quality. The bikes are fully manufactured and painted in Prague, Czech Republic, with Voverka & Fišer overseeing the entire process.
