If there’s one thing to be said for Martin Renwick, ex-Pro racer, now design guru behind Australia’s Vuelo Velo: he doesn’t do things by halves. This is the Copenhagen — the stylish commuter cousin to his Twisted road bike and Di2 Vuelo. As with each Vuelo Velo, an innovative frame is featured, dressed with the finest components available.
From the cast head badge to the Paragon Slider dropouts, the titanium frame is a picture of optimum cycling pleasure. The Copenhagen is somewhat of a celebrity, having done the rounds as a show bike at the NAHBS and Interbike. It’s now available to purchase, for the best offer. The truss forks offer a compliant ride quality, coupling the forgiving nature of titanium with superb response.
The frame is kitted with the best of German engineering. Tune provided the cockpit, front Princess hub and Schwarzbrenner tubbys, driven by the ultra-reliable Rohloff internal rear hub. The hub is powered by a Gates belt and an XTR drive train, which means a silent and grease-free ride, deftly moderated by Hope disc brakes. For the weight weenies, the frame weighs in at around 1300 grams.
Vuelo Velo’s Copenhagen is the commuter to last a lifetime. Make an inquiry by contacting Martin through his website. For more of the finest bikes Australia has to offer, be sure to come along the the first ever Australian Custom Bicycle Show, this weekend in Melbourne.
