four two bicycles available if you’re just the right size. Fortunately these run the full range so there’s something for everyone. If you’ve been wanting a Vanilla MTB this might be your best chance to get one. Or let us help you come up with a new paint scheme for your new road racer. Hard to find a race-specific cross bike small enough in the shops? We might have just the right thing for you! Maybe a pair of cross machines for the right racing couple even with that 2013 Surprise Me!
A little back story: In 2002 Sacha had been building bikes for three years and things were really starting to ramp up. A couple of friends were racing Vanilla’s in national 24-hour solo MTB races and totally destroying. The Gentle Lovers team had all cat’d up to A’s for cross and 1/2’s on the road and were all riding Vanilla’s. People were finally starting to take them seriously in spite of their every effort to the contrary. It was good times all around.
