Oct 22  |  Opportunity Knocks

We have 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.

We have more pictures of each and you  can get more info if you email: customerservice@vanillabicycles.com
