This bike is our 2022 Chris King show bike showcasing the new Midnight color that Chris King launched that year. This bike features our “galaxy” paint scheme and was hand painted in multiple color layers of cerakote. The frame is cerakoted from the head tube to about halfway back on the frame where it transitions to a blue anodize and blasted titanium finish to give the bike its unique look. This is a one of a kind piece of artwork that will not be duplicated.

The geometry on this bike is our new “Aggressive Geometry” where we prioritize toe clearance with a longer top tube and a shorter stem. The effect generates a quick handling bike when the corners get tight, but a bike that can also remain stable at high speeds on rough descents due to the longer wheelbase of the bike.

This bike HAS NEVER BEEN RIDDEN! It has been hand carried to a few shows but we have never mounted pedals on it and it has not even been rolled to the end of the shop. You can see the original photo gallery of the bike HERE

The geometry is based on a 56cm Storm King geometry but slightly modified with a taller headtube and a longer top tube. It will fit riders from 5’9 to 6’0. We can adjust the stem length if necessary for your fit.

This is not another gravel bike. The Sage Titanium Storm King is a catalyst to new adventures. It’s a drop-bar beast designed to fuel your exploration, taking you deeper while getting increasingly more remote with every pedal stroke. The Storm King is not only designed for the bike packer who tackles multi-day adventures like the Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder, but also for the gravel racer who looks to conquer events like the Unbound or Grinduro. Storm King is a rock-gobbling animal with a geometry to keep the rider more comfortable on technical terrain.

Named after the ribbon of singletrack outside of Bend, Oregon, Storm King is ready to get shreddy on tires sizes up to 700x50mm. Utilizing a curved seat tube to decrease the length of the chainstays while maintaining maximum tire clearance, the Storm King is able to snap to acceleration with minimal effort. The Storm King touts three bottle cages, front and rear fender mounts, and bosses for either bolt-on food bags or bolt-on frame bags. All that, plus internal cable routing for the rear brake and dropper post for an ultra-clean look.

All of our demo/ show bikes carry our limited lifetime warranty so you can rest easy at night knowing your frame is covered should something happen to it. Complete bikes are tuned up prior to shipping. This includes new chain, bar tape, and brake pads as necessary. Complete bikes ship out within 7 business days after your order has been confirmed.

3/2.5 Titanium

At Sage, 3/2.5 titanium is the magic material. The smooth riding alloy blends stiffness, durability and weight for the ultimate frame tubing. Titanium has a superior strength-to-weight ratio compared with steel and aluminum, and the fatigue tolerance far surpasses the other materials. Don’t fret long rain rides or brackish water crossings—3/2.5 titanium resists rust and corrosion better than any other metal tubing.

Custom Cerakote and Anodize Finish

The finish on this bike is truly unique. This is one of the last bikes we created that was a combination of both Cerakote and Anodize finishes. The “Galaxy” themed bike starts out with a Cerakote finish on the front of the frame and the fork before transitioning to an anodized finish at the mid point of the bike before ending in a bead blasted titanium finish for the back end of the bike. The artwork on the front of the bike was done by freehand and really brings together the concept of the “Midnight” color and the Galaxy theme.

Full Internal Routing Options

Internally routed dropper and rear brake line, while the rear derailleur cable is externally routed for easy maintenance.

Oversized 44-Millimeter Head Tube

Borrowed from the mountain bike realm, the oversized 44-millimeter head tube affords phenomenal front-end stiffness and precision on the road. Press-in headset cups provide a secure interface between frame and cockpit, and the large diameter opening accepts a wide range of steerer tubes, from 1⅛-inch straight to 1⅛–1½-inch tapered and every combination between.

T47 Bottom Bracket

Classic and classy yet updated for the modern era, the T47 bottom bracket reigns supreme over press-fit alternatives. The strong interface between bottom bracket cups and the frame eliminates creaks and maintains alignment that won’t slip or wobble over time. Additionally, installation, removal and service of the design are simply superior. No punching or pressing required. Just thread it, grease it, shred it. Repeat.

Dropper Post Ready

The lines between mountain bikes and gravel bikes continue to blur with the inclusion of dropper posts on a drop bar bike. The ability to get the saddle out of the way when the going gets steep and technical cannot be understated. Pop the seat back up when it is time to lay the power down on the pedals and away you go.
