The Rodriguez Outlaw -
Sorry professional racers,
this bicycle has been banned by the UCI. It's considered an unfair advantage to race a bicycle this light!

Outlaw Guy Do you need a carbon fiber frame to get your bike weight down to 14 pounds? Most people think so. There are two types of people. There are people that believe what's written in a magazine, and people that want to see for themselves. While there have been a few magazine articles referencing the Rodriguez Outlaw, we do not advertise in magazines, and no magazine has ever asked to ride one and review it. That's because we don't buy $10,000 advertisements....see how that works? The Rodriguez Outlaw sells itself, and is truly the only sub-14 pound bike for the person who is not swayed by an "article" written in a magazine (usually opposite the ad for that same bicycle). No longer do you have to give up all the advantages of a real steel frame to save weight.

Sizes: All of our bikes are offered in 20 production sizes . If you don't fit one of our production sizes, a custom size frame in any model is just $200 extra.

About the Outlaw Red

It's light, and you'll know it's light! This is our least expensive Outlaw, but it's certainly no slouch. At 16 pounds (or less), this bike is a verified value. This is the weight that we see a lot of the high-end carbon bikes come in at. When I say high end carbon bikes, I mean bikes that sell for well over $8,500.

The Outlaw Red is ready to race!

About the Outlaw Red Lite

It's crazy light, and you'll know it's crazy light! This is our lightest Outlaw, and at 13.5 verified pounds, it's the lightest bike that's ever been in the shop at any price. We've had bikes that sell for twice as much, and side by side, they are all heavier than the Outlaw Red Lite.

The Outlaw Red Lite is ready to fly!

About the Outlaw Record

For the Campagnolo lover (like me) there's the Outlaw Record. While not quite as light as the Outlaw Red Lite, this one is still too light to professionally race. Don't let your buddies lift this one. Just pretend that you're kicking their rumps on a heavy steel bike with old school Campagnolo parts on it.

The Outlaw Record is ready to be your favorite new ride!

Nothin' Up Our Sleeve
The Outlaw uses no 'tricks' to get the bicycle weight down. Every component selected is un-modified and ready to ride. The published weights are true and verified. The bicycles weighed were a medium size equivalent to a 54~55cm frame, and were weighed with (and without) Speedplay ti X1 pedals and a Serfas carbon bottle cage. The frame weight listed includes the bottom bracket shell, head tube and the dropouts (unlike many carbon manufacturers). There are no proprietary components (forks or bottom brackets) that make the frame lighter, but add all the saved weight back when the bike is assembled for riding.

Our Competition thinks We're Crazy
That's because the Rodriguez Outlaw comes with a weight guarantee. I say don't trust, verify. If weight is important to you, and you are spending thousands to have a super light bike, why wouldn't you demand a weight guarantee? Don't trust a brochure, magazine ad or article, salesperson....heck...don't even trust me! Get in writing exactly what your ultra-light bike (or frame) will weigh. If it doesn't hit that weight, get your money back. You'll be amazed at how many builders will not give that guarantee.

My father-in-law always says "Paper doesn't refuse ink", and he's right! Often, these carbon bikes written about actually weigh more than our standard Competition steel bikes even though ours are less expensive. While the magazines churn out articles trying to sell you the newest fad that the big manufacturers want to thrust onto the industry, our customers enjoy riding something that's less expensive, lighter weight, more responsive, more durable, and looks like a bicycle, not an airplane wing.

No Sacrifice!
The Rodriguez Outlaw gives you all the bragging rights of having one of the lightest bikes, as well as the most comfortable and best fitting bike in the pack. The Outlaw rides comfortably like a steel bike because it is a steel bike. You've got to be careful though, one ride and you may be hooked like what happened to Steve about 5-minutes ago.
