“Colorado-based boutique bicycle manufacturer, Alchemy Bicycles, has pushed all their chips in the dirt at this year’s Sea Otter Classic, in Monterey, California. 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. Customers can now expand their versatility in the dirt with the all-new Alchemy Rogue, a gravel bike, and the Argos, a new titanium hardtail mountain bike.”

Rogue – Gravel Bike

The Alchemy Rogue is a natural expansion of Alchemy’s handmade in Colorado gravel bike lineup and the perfect complement to the Ronin. The Rogue brings more terrain capability with a slack head tube angle, wider tire clearance, and updated geometry. It is the first US-made gravel bike to include the SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger (UDH), giving the bike more range and reliability. In addition, the frame is built with the award-winning Alchemy Factory Carbon that has been revered for over a decade.”

Updated Paint Schemes & 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.
