Vaaru Cycles was at the London Bike Show
Yes, this is the very bike we reviewed, fact fans – although I’m pretty sure it was slightly cleaner than that when we sent it back. It’s a piece of Ti trail bike loveliness which costs £1,699 (frame only) – Vaaru also do full builds.
But there was a bunch of other stuff of interest to mountain bikers on the Vaaru stand: This brand-spanking new Ti stem looked extremely pretty. It’s cast in 3Al 2.5V Titanium, and it’s available in 90, 100 and 110mm lengths. Roadies can also get their hands on a 120mm in they want, too. It costs a Ti-tastic £260.
There’s a Ti seatpost, which is available at the moment in 31.6 and 27.2 sizes right now (30.9 will be available to order) for £169.99, and the thing that made us most excited in the Vaaru stand was……this prototype cast Ti fork, to complete the none-more-Ti look of your Ti stemmed, seatposted and framed machine. There will be some minor changes to the finished version. This one comes with a QR axle; the plan is for a 15mm bolt-thru axle instead, and the brake mounts will be slightly refined. Estimated price is around the £500 mark, and the weight will be sub 800g.
Vaaru bikes is available to buy at our Chichester store and will be available at the Hargroves Cycles QE Cycle Fest 2016 where you will be able to test out the latest bikes that Vaaru has to offer.
