The One Bike To Rule Them All
A study in refined ruggedness—this is one bike to rule them all. Named for the road that brought pioneers over the Cascade Mountains on the final leg of the Oregon Trail, the Barlow is built for epic adventures. It draws on the aggressive geometry and precise handling of our award-winning Skyline road bike, while also maintaining the comfort and toughness of an off-road machine. Some might label this design “adventure rider,” “gravel racer,” or “endurance road,” but Sage Titanium’s versatile frame transcends those conventional categories. No, the Barlow relishes the rigors of the dirt while begging for the speed of the road. It loads up for a tour and can handle the long haul. It does not compromise, and it flashes with the class of titanium. It does it all.
A machined-titanium yoke enhances the drive-side chainstay and defines the Barlow’s versatility. The design clears 53/39 chain rings and a 40-millimeter tire while preserving normal crank arm spacing. It’s not constrained to smaller gearing, like a cyclocross bike. It’s not limited by narrow rubber, like a road bike. It’s suited for any adventure at any speed. Additionally, the combination of an oversized head tube and bi-ovalized down tube provides a stable platform for snappy acceleration and precise, confident handling, on or off the road.
The refinement trickles down to the finer details on the Barlow. It’s packed with stealth, technical minutia that make substantial impacts. Sage Titanium’s patented Cable Clip System (US Patent No. 9,545,975) streamlines mechanical cable or electronic wire routing for an attention to detail that reconciles aesthetics and functionality. Integrated fender/rack mounts and three water bottle cage mounts facilitate any extended wanderings away from civilization. Whether adventure takes you through a rotating pace line or over rugged mountain passes, the Barlow begs to ride it all in style.
