On the other end VO is taking pre orders for another production run, incl a new xl model for the basketball players amongst us.
Best cheapo mini velo?’
Frameset is fine
Local shop here used to have the Csepel Royal Frisco. Seem to remember that being cheap!
I don't know what you would consider cheap, but I reckon it'd worth your while having a look around AliExpress.
Here's a titanium frame set for example.
There's also a fairly ugly carbon frame set if you look around.
Orbea Katu has some pretty beefy spec.
I had one of these a few years back.. £350 rrp it was, perfect it would be ... can I find a cheapo one? can i eck!
any colour, with basket, guards (dynamo of course) and sub £100 or so... bite ya hand off! maybe id push to £200. tight git.
I'm fancying a mini velo with a Rohloff hub.
Surely you could throw the SJS parts bin at a Dawes Kingpin for some retro goodness? ;)
your trek is almost that
Yes... but we don’t have a parts bin...
Orbea Katu is on my mind now
Cough Moulton cough.
What is the difference between a mini velo and a moulton?
Nice looking things.
If you're in the UK, a second hand shopper bike can cost as little as 40 quid.
The problem is buying good tyres for it I would think.
Yeah, but little wheels, travel bike, and Rohloff
There are a few tyre choice as the moulton has 20" wheels.
Which moulton? Yours? Or generally?
Thought all later moultons are 20" wheels, michellin, schwable and continental make puncture proof tyres for that size. Mines shod with Haro HPF cos BMX innit.
EDIT: AM models are 17 and no idea on tyre choices for that.
It is not that much, if you go with the normal models.
Unless your going for the stainless steel double pylon then you are right
The AM line is still 369 (17”). Had an AM for a few years.
17” was my thought as we always have people asking and have fuck all rim options
