Open Cycles: A New Take on the 29er

Open Cycle Hard Tail O-1.0 29erOpen Cycle debuts with just one model, the Hardtail O-1.0.

The Sea Otter Classic is a launchpad for all manner of bikes and gear, and one of the most exciting projects unveiled at this year's event is a new company called Open Cycle. A collaboration between Gerard Vroomen, the co-founder of CervĂ©lo bikes, and Andy Kessler, ex-CEO of Swiss bike powerhouse BMC, the venture is compelling on reputation alone. And the company model is just as interesting: Open debuted with just one bike, a high-end 29-inch racer called the Hardtail O-1.0 that comes as a bare frame or in just two premium build options.
