As incredibly difficult as cross racing is, cross bikes have to be even tougher. A great cross bike is able withstand not just brutal weather, aggressive racing, and unavoidable spills, but also weekly travel, whether in a car or stuffed into a bike bag in the belly of an airplane. When we say our cross bikes are proven to shake off all of that abuse with ease, we mean it.

The Firefly-equipped Bitchn Grit racing team flies back and forth across the country dozens of times per year. In four years of sponsorship, they have raced their bikes to elite top tens, podiums, and wins (including Dani Arman’s 2019 women’s 30-34 national championship!) over and over again. And in those four years: not a single issue with any of their frames. Just worry-free, ultra-fast racing against the country’s best, mixed in with springs and summers full of gravel riding, demanding training, and not-uncommon mountain bike trail exploring. 

Combine that reliability with our industry leading custom design and manufacturing and you’ll understand why your dream cross racing bike is a Firefly.

I genuinely can’t think of any other bike I’d rather have. The ride quality and fit have been particular improvements from my previous stock bikes and titanium as a material has been a revelation. Since taking delivery in early 2015 it has taken me to France, Italy, Mallorca and lots of riding around Sydney. This year it will be with me for two weeks in the French Alps so plenty of quality roads to give it the kms it deserves.
