Introducing: Litespeed Arenberg

Litespeed, a bike maker that specializes in titanium framed, US-made bikes, has just announced the rerelease of the Arenberg, a classic model from the company’s line. This new bike is upgraded for the 2020s with a new frame, styling, and features.

From the release:

While wallet-friendly, the Arenberg cuts zero corners. Engineered with a slightly less-aggressive riding position than other models in the Litespeed line, 3AL/2.5V titanium tubesets are handcrafted by our expert fabricators in Chattanooga, Tenn. With uniquely updated chainstay design, clean internal cable routing* and disc brake power, you’re free to fly. Take on pitchy climbs, carve swooping descents with brilliant handling, and go for the town sprint.

With its toughness and modern tire clearance to 35mm, the Arenberg simply flies on smooth roads, broken pave with neglected chip seal, and can handle groomed dirt roads with comfortable ease. With a wide range of complimentary features like color logo or bright brushed finishes, as well as optional TiDize color anodizing upgrades—you can add a bit of personalized style to your ride.

The bike features multiple hardware offerings including Shimano 105 11 and Ultegra Di2 12 speed kits. You can also request a specifc frame geometry as each model is handmade on ordering.

At $2,950 you’re paying quite a bit for a nice bike but, as we’re all aware, you get what you pay for. The product itself looks to be solid and very rideable and Litespeed is a brand with history and distinction. Well worth a look if you’re in the market.
