New Bike Day: Sage Custom Optimator

Sage Custom Program

Information provided by Sage Titanium Bicycles

The Sage Titanium Optimator is a worthy Cross Country weapon when your weekends are spent lining up in the start chute. A bike designed from the ground up with one singular purpose- to win XC races. This bike is built to go fast. It rips through technical rock gardens and up steep climbs with reckless abandon. It bombs descents as fast as any XCFS bike out there, while a well-balanced geometry allows the Optimator to fly through the air when the race course tries to throw you off your game. This bike is meant to be ridden hard when your goal is the top step of the podium.


You dream it. Sage Titanium builds it, right here in the United States. Our custom frame program offers the smooth, strong and refined ride of titanium, tailored to your exact preferences and specifications. Give us a call, and founder and chief designer, David Rosen, will walk you through the process. He’ll guide you through every step, from initial conception to the refined details and finishing touches. In 10 to 12 weeks, you’ll be pedaling your one-of-a-kind titanium masterpiece down the road.

Customize Your Geometry

Whether it’s fully custom geometry from a professional fitter or just some tweaks to one of our existing models, we’ll build a titanium frame to your exact specifications. Have an idea that you’re not sure will work? Our expert design team will coordinate directly with you to ensure a perfect fit.

Customize Your Frame

Choose from one of Sage Titanium’s tried-and-true road, ’cross or gravel designs, or request a frame tailored to your riding style. We’ll build a snappy cross-country hardtail or turn the PDXCX into a mud-slaying single speed. Perhaps you’d like a sleek track bike with the strength and shine of titanium? We’re happy to build that too. Your dream titanium ride is just a phone call away.

Customize Your Design

Select the finer details to perfect your dream ride. Choose the dropouts, hub spacing, bottom bracket shell, axle type, tube sizes, tube shapes and just about any other design detail. Pick your perfect brake, whether that’s the flash of new flat mount discs or the traditional reliability of cyclocross cantilevers. We’ll adapt the bike to your preferred drivetrain type, optimizing the setup for mechanical, electronic, or both with our patented Cable Clip System (US Patent No. 9,545,975). We can even build a belt-drive, travel bike with S&S couplers. We can make your perfect bike.

Customize Your Finish

From the lusty shine of raw titanium to a one-off paint scheme, your preferred finishing technique caps off every Custom Sage. Industrial finish is standard, but bead-blasted or polished titanium frames are available too. We also offer one-of-a-kind color schemes bringing each unique design to life, one coat at a time.

Note: Custom paint adds two to three weeks to delivery time.
Note: The Sage Custom program is priced for frame only. Within 24 hours of your payment, we will call to discuss the options and pricing for a complete bike.
