The Payoff is like a hipster with a Macbook — trendy, up to date but with retro styling. To start with, the bike has a single-ring drivetrain with no provision for anything as uncool and cluttering as a front mech. Onza uses its own brand narrow-wide 32t chainring, too. The frame itself is made from good-old-fashioned 4130 cro-mo steel, but it’s been electroplated to prevent corrosion.
