    Anyone riding a Vanilla frame? (merged thread)

    I'm thinking about having Vanilla build me a singlespeed soft-tail. Anyone riding one have comments or pictures?

    I don't own one, but I've been frequenting their website lately. They do some really beautiful work. I'd love to have any one of their frames with the custom lug work and all the other little extras. I know a guy who has one of their road frames built up with wooden fenders - it's sweet. His name is Grant - try paging him on this board.

    I don't have one, but a few months back someone posted some Beautiful pictures of a 29er Vanilla in the old 29er forums. I cant find the link, but I can tell you now, that is a bike I will never forget. I would like to say that the owner of the Vanilla 29er said he waited about a year or so for it

    Don't own one, but have seen a couple of Vanilla 'cross frames. Definitely as nice a bike as any I've seen, on par with Sachs and only a select few others. I was quoted a 6-month wait on a road frame when I called last Fall, and the price is also up there with the other "artisan" builders.

    Show me Vanilla

    I want to see some Vanilla bikes. They are absolutely drool-worthy. I now have a new dream bike. Post 'em if you've got 'em!
