You may have already heard of Vielo – the newest highly acclaimed British bike brand. Their bikes not only look stunning, but also ride like a dream and we can say this from our own experience.
Vielo bikes come in two models – the R+1 for the road and the V+1 for the gravel rider. Both types of frames are designed specifically for 1x groupsets, allowing for wider and stiffer bottom bracket shell. This means that more of the power from your legs goes directly to the rear wheel, instead of being lost due to flex in the frame. There are also additional small features which we really like – the metal heat deflector shields near the brake rotors, the beautifully crafted Vielo cranksets and bars, and the very clever location of the seatpost clamp bolt, to name just a few.
Not surprisingly Vielo V+1 was chosen as a runner up to the prestigious Bikeradar.com Gravel Bike of the Year competition, ony to be overtaken by Giant, yet ahead of big brands like Cube, Cinelli and Cervelo.
We were lucky to meet Ian Hughes, the founder of Vielo, at the Core Bike show and spent a long time chatting. His bikes really impressed us and we were very keen from the start to begin selling them in our workshop. Of course you can buy one yourself directly from Ian’s website and I’m sure you will not be dissapointed, but what we are offering is a little bit extra. With every bike purchase from us you get a free bike fit, so even before we place the order for your bike we will know what size frame, stem, cranks and handlebars you need. We will also build the bike for you for free.
From experience we know that riding a Vielo bike is going to put the biggest grin on your face and you will love every ride on it. The specifically designed carbon frame and uncomplicated 1x transmission are trully ingenious and will give you years of trouble free riding. The bike fit we offer is going to save you worring if you are getting the right size frame and components. And if you are still unsure – come to the Vielo presentation this September (details to be anonced soon), so you can see the bikes for yourself and have a chat with Ian.
