2017 Alchemy Eros
The Alchemy Eros is designed to tackle steep mountain slopes, extreme climbs, gritty dirt roads, and long-distance rides. The Eros is an over-achiever, ideal for cyclists who love to forge their own paths.
Alchemy manages all this magic with the Eros due to its state-of-the-art construction, which relies on titanium welds that meet the guidelines set by the American Welding Society. This means all the welds are flush with the joints, with no undercutting, nor any concave or convex welds. The top and down tubes are slightly tapered, creating an attractive sleekness and a stunningly smooth ride.
Alchemy designed the Eros to be vertically compliant while maintaining lateral rigidity. It makes the ride forgiving on the body while propelling you forward with conviction at every pedal stroke. The seatstays and chainstays have S-bends where they meet at the drop outs to improve compliance over rougher roads.
The Eros is offered in five distinct sizes and can also be made with completely custom geometry. You have the choice of either a PF30 or English threaded bottom bracket depending on how you want to build up the frame. The tapered head tube and Enve fork help maintain front end stability and the frame can be designed for either mechanical or electronic drivetrains.
For all that power, the Eros strikes a graceful, strong silhouette. It's the Renaissance bike, ready to conquer back roads, byways, steep climbs, and crazy mountainous descents.
