    Vanilla Bikes

    Hey mtbers,

    Is there anyone out there that has the good fortune of actually owning a fine machine (especially a mountain bike) made by Vanilla Bicycles?

    If so, could you please post some pics? It'd be great to see some non-studio photos and maybe even some pics of those bikes in action. Thanks!

    I am getting one built later this summer and I'll post pics when I get it. I was lucky and went onto the wait-list when it was 14 months. It's 4 years now..

    We're having a little website trouble, but yeah, got some around the shop. I'll post pics when our server is fixed. They're stunning bikes.

    A buddy of mine is a Radonnuer (sp?) long-distance maniac, and he just had his 3rd(?) Vanilla built. Very pretty bike and very utilitarian while at it...


    Tires are too skinny though... :oP'''''''

    Arrghh, I'm kicking myself for not getting on the list when it was shorter. Guess I may as well do it now, I'd have 4 years to save up the money eh? Absolutely amazing stuff, certainly one of the most talented builders I've ever seen.

    OK, who is ATB Scott?

    I tried to upload some pics but it did not work for some reason.

    My next bike will be a 29er with drop bars so I can ride some of the trails around here. No suspension so kind of a fat cross bike.
