Black Heart Bike Company – Rails On-Road // Rips Off-Road

Company

BlackHeart Bike Company was born out of a feeling of disillusionment with the mainstream cycling industry. Zach Lambert, the founder, got tired of marketers telling him that his bike was never light, stiff, or aero enough. That if people really wanted to ride they needed to spend more money year after year.

The Bike

He spent two years prototyping a single frameset that looks and handles like a road bike on road, but has the capability of a modern gravel bike off-road. Each aspect of the design was carefully considered and intentional.

  • A durable, titanium frame with double-butted tubes and a design that echoes classic steel frames.
  • Fork, chainstay, and seatstay shapes that create a clean silhouette regardless of tire size so the bike looks like a road bike on road.
  • Fits tires up to 700c x 37mm / 650b x 47mm for when adventure calls.
  • No pannier rack bosses and minimal branding to let the design shine.
  • Handbuilt in Taiwan by industry leaders in titanium and carbon fiber manufacturing.
  • A pricepoint that is good value for those considering a titanium allroad frameset.

The result is a single bike that can handle 90% of what the average cyclist rides daily.
