DENVER, CO, October 7, 2021 — Colorado-based boutique bicycle manufacturer, Alchemy Bicycles, has pushed all their chips in the dirt at this year’s Sea Otter Classic, in Monterey, CA. Built from the success of their current lineup of mountain bikes and gravel bikes, including the Arktos and Ronin, Alchemy has driven even further into the dirt arena with the launch of two new bikes and a flip chip suspension system modification for the 2022 Arktos.
For 2022, Alchemy has a flip-chip update to the Arktos. Flip chip available on Arktos 120, Arktos 135, and Arktos 150 & MX models. The chip modifies the head angle and seat angle by 0.75 degree in the high position.
2022 Arktos Launch with Flip Chip
Alchemy’s 2022 Arktos features an all-new flip chip modification that now offers the ability to transform the Arktos from a capable, playful down-country bike with a steeper, more maneuverable geometry to a wickedly fast enduro machine. In addition, the flip chip modification makes it incredibly easy to convert the Arktos from a 29” bike to a mixed-wheel arrangement, further expanding the Arktos’ already impressive versatility.
It’s easy to change by just removing the shock bolt and adjusting the chip position.
Adjust geometry with High/Low position (MX only compatible in High) Groups ranging from GX Eagle, XT and X01 Eagle, with custom options available by request Pricing and Availability: Available starting 10/31/21 Builds ranging from $5,499 to $7,499 Updated Paint Schemes and In-House Cerakote
Alchemy, known for their custom in-house finishes and paint jobs, is pleased to expand their finishing capabilities even further. They now offer two new finishes that will also remain in-house: a chromatic harlequin paint scheme and a variety of Cerakote colors.
Cerakote, a thin polymer/ceramic coating, is drastically more durable than liquid paint and an ideal addition to Alchemy’s lineup. Applied at approximately 1/6 the thickness of standard paint, Cerakote is much lighter in weight. While other finishes can scratch and rub off over time, Cerakote will not diminish in any way, making it a perfect compliment to Alchemy’s built-to-last ideology.
