Fairdale Spaceship Frame and ENVE Fork KitMechanical or Electronic
Titanium is a great material for high-performance bike frames and last year we had an opportunity to make our own using custom drawn 3/2.5 titanium tube sets. We decided to go for it, and what began as a fun R&D project is now a reality.
In the past we had always talked about some of the higher-end bikes being like “spaceships”, so using that term for the project’s code name was a given to us. When it came time to name the frame officially, the Spaceship moniker had morphed into more of a term of endearment and it stuck.
For the Spaceship, we started with the Goodship’s proven road geometry and modified the tubing shape and sizes for titanium. The frame is paired with an Enve 2.0 carbon fiber fork with the 1-1/4” tapered steerer tube, both for the increased strength, and the smoother transitions from the fork crown to the lower head tube, and upward to the headset cap on top.
The Spaceship is available now in dedicated framesets for either mechanical or electronic (pictured) groupsets.

SPACESHIP x GOODSHIP
If you own, or plan to purchase, one of our Goodship bikes, the mechanical version of the Spaceship is the perfect upgrade. The only other part you'll need is a 30mm press-fit bottom-bracket.
