Translation - "To Spank"
The VerHauen frame has come from years of design, testing and dreaming to finally become a reality in 2013.
The founders of Vassago had a vision to provide a no-compromise, made in the USA steel frame that would rival or surpass many custom frames, and that vision is finally being realized!
Every part of the new VerHauen frame has been hand selected, tested, and sourced in the good ol USA - even down to the materials for the finish. The frame boasts features normally found only on custom frames - True Temper OX Platinum size specific tubesets, stainless steel seatube inserts and dropouts, S-bend stays with tons of mud clearance, 142 and through axle options, and a 44mm headtube to allow the use of tapered forks - at a price that rivals many overseas frames.
The BanderSnatch is a gear-specific, race ready 29er, at a price the wife will never even notice.
Every inch of the new Bandersnatch has been refined and optimized to accentuate that magical carpet ride of a good steel frame. New curved rear stays enhance the vertical compliance while maintaining lateral stiffess for optimum performance, and every tube has been hand selected for each different frame size.
The latest improvements to the BanderSnatch include the forward-set seat tube allowing more mud clearance for various derailleurs and big fat tires, post mount rear disk brakes, "SupaFly" cold cast dropouts, and a 44mm headtube to allow the use of the new crop of tapered forks.
Optimus Ti $1899
While our first passion is steel, there is no denying the allure and almost magical qualities offered by a titanium frame; Super light with a ride compliance like no other material can offer. The 2013 Optimus has been completely redesigned and made in the USA by some of the finest builders in the industry.
The 2013 Optimus Ti boasts sliding dropouts that allow the use of multiple rear axle options, curved downtube, Vassago Size specific titanium tubing, 44mm headtube for straight or tapered forks, an awesome brushed finish, and legendary WetCat handling.
When merging the legendary ride quality of fine titanium, the balanced handling of WetCat geometry and artisan-quality welds, the result is a ti 29er that is truly worthy of the name Optimus Ti.
