After years of searching, Alchemy has finally found a fabrication partner that can help us bring the LYCOS to you at a lower cost than our handmade-in-Colorado models, all with our same world-class standards and award winning layups. All LYCOS builds use top-shelf components to give you the best possible ride, now at a lower price than we've ever offered.
We have spent over a decade and countless hours perfecting our carbon layups. We engineer our frames to be stronger, lighter, and reliable. Our team of fabricators ensures our carbon bike frames are designed to be integrated with our suspension systems providing better kinematics compared to other mountain bikes. Whether it is our 5+ of NAHBs award winning carbon layups or our lifetime warranty on frames, you can rest assured your Alchemy carbon frame is built to stand the test of time.
The LYCOS was born out a desire for adventure, where speed was a necessity. At it's core, the Lycos is an off-road explorer designed to tackle any and all gravel terrain. But thanks to our unique carbon layup, you'll gain that compliance and comfort vertically without sacrificing stiffness front-to-back so you can still fly on smooth surfaces.
