    what are you looking for? Carbon XC race bike? Steel AM hardtail? something in between? 29er or B+? Budget? rigid or squish fork? we need to narrow this down.

    a few of the frames that have been mentioned already are no longer available.

    l
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    Light steel, ti, or carbon. 29". Racey enough, but everyday bike. Not AM. Will run squish and ridgid (100-120mm)

    All of their new frames were due in this month, so maybe Tom is just dealing with the logistics? I had to leave a voicemail today, as well...

    Note: their website hasn't been updated with all of the new 2017 changes, either, so the specs listed for the Optimus and Verhauen are not up to date yet.

    I am really happy with my Vassago Verhauen. Steel frame that is both stiff and compliant enough to take the edge off. My Carbon HT (Geared) is lighter frame and slightly stiffer, but also a little more harsh. I have raced both the Verhauen in SS class and the carbon bike in geared. I don't race alot but a few times here and there and it is more than capable. It is also good every day rides too.

    Vassago is a small shop in that there is not a big staff to take calls and things. However they make great bikes and Tom rides and races what he builds.

    As for complete bikes I am sure Tom can build up what ever spec you want on any of his frames.

    '18 Specialized Epic 29", Vassago Verhauen SS 29", '13 Santa Cruz Solo 27.5", XC, AM, blah blah blah.. I just ride.

    Salsa El Mariachi has gone extinct. You may still be able to find them, but last year they stopped making them.

    Tom is planning to activate a full website overhaul as soon as the first shipment of 2017 frames arrives. He may add it then?

    If SC offered the Chameleon in titanium, steel, or possibly even carbon, I'd probably order one today. It's exactly the type of versatile geometry I'm looking for, and I really like the quality and ride of SC's higher-end bikes.

    Unfortunately, they're only producing them in aluminum (at this time). While that means the prices are fantastic for riders just starting out, I personally can't do the aluminum thing ever again.

    Don't get me wrong, it's still an awesome bike! Maybe they're simply testing the market with that geometry; and, if it does well, perhaps they'll eventual offer it in a higher quality material later? That would be rad.

    Agreed with Paleh0rse, much prefer good steel butted tubing or good CF, preferably steel imo, way better riding.

    Sadly, no. But, there is still hope for a carbon version to compete with the Trek Stache 9.

    I am currently on an Ibis Tranny29 and love it! I want to give the Pivot Les a shot but don't see any advantage of it over my Tranny. However I would give my left nut for a SC Highball with a 73mm threaded BB and single speed dropouts with a CARBON frame!!

    Its easy to have a SS carbon highball. Take the carbon cc frame and use the trickstuff exzentriker. Threaded bb, carbon, thru axle, ss.


    You can keep your left nut. Just owe me a juice.

    The trick stuff BB is a cool product but it seems like a PITA to set up with perfect alignment of both cups. But, then again I have never used it so...
    I guess I am a fan of adjustable drop outs.
