What bike brand begins 'Van~'
November 17, 2011 11:44 AM   Subscribe

I'm in the UK, near Bath. I just saw someone on a bicycle I really want. Silver frame, canti brakes, racer / tourer style. Brand name was approx 11 letters long and I'm pretty sure it began with 'van'. Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance!

Van Dessel Gin and Trobmones?

Maybe Van Nicholas? Exactly 11 letters, and they are clearcoated titanium. Supposed to be an amazing ride!

Now that I've read more of their site, I see they are not clearcoated, just "lightly brushed".

I was thinking Vanmoof since you mentioned a silver frame, but they are not "racer" style. Still, I'll throw it out there anyway.

I vote for Van Nicholas. I saw a Van Nicholas bike a while ago while on the train from Bristol. I believe the bloke riding it got off around Bath. It was a gorgeous looking machine!

Van Nicholas it is! Thanks Utilitaritron. A little dissapointed to find it's titanium and therefore a little bit out of my price range!
