Colorado-based Alchemy brought both cyclocross and gravel bikes to NAHBS in North Carolina this year. Last year, we saw their 'cross offerings at the show, and this year, they not only brought their latest bikes, they decked out their 'cross bike with the new CX1 groupset from SRAM. The titanium bike has custom dropouts, and a custom ISP with seat clamp with S bend stays bent in-house. The bike features full internal routing by using a internal titanium rod to guide the housing. The paint is a custom paint scheme designed and painted in-house.

They also showcased a new gravel grinder bike, the stealthy-looking carbon fiber Aithon, complete with Helios disc wheels and a carbon fork made in-house. The bike is expected to be available by May.
