8bar FHAIN V2 – Rookie Edition
Suitable for fixed-gear racing and single-speed commute.
The 8bar FHAIN v2 is one of our most precious fixed-gear frame models. It offers you high quality for a reasonable price. Thanks to its geometry it feels just as comfortable to ride in city traffic as to race through tight turns on the race track. Now it’s available as a limited Rookie Edition, a sick but slick varnish that will stand out wherever you’ll take your ride.
(The 8bar rookies is an amateur racing team that we started in 2015. If you never heard about the 8bar Rookies before or don’t like to race by yourself, check out the 8bar Rookies now and become part of a world-wide community.)
The 8bar FHAIN v2 frameset is made of high quality double butted 6061 aluminium makes the frame is stiff and durable at the same time. The 53mm bottom bracket drop gives you enough pedal clearance when cornering. While the aero carbon fork will help you to take your lines as direct was you wish.

As usual you are able to build up your complete FHAIN with the 8bar Design-Your-Bike configurator. Here is a suggested configuration with the brand-new 8bar GIGA group that will provide you with the perfect race set-up. With a total weight of 7,2kg the 8bar Rookie Edition is a light, stiff and uncompromising ride perfect for racing.
But as it’s suitable for a front and a rear brake as well, you can also riding it as a fixed-gear bike in the city without getting into trouble with the local law enforcement.
