Road Frames from Ahrens Bicycles & Vanderkitten

That's right....after 10 years of developing custom mountain frames we are finally offering road frames with the same level of quality our customers demand. The frame below was designed for our new friend Liz Hatch who is racing for Team Vanderkitten. Liz writes a column/personal journal for the glossy ROAD magazine and we're excited to see this season progress. The frame below weighs 2.5 lbs and is all Easton Ultralite construction except for the chainstays which are Columbus s-bend...very nice. Graphics were supplied by Vanderkitten and the down tube/seat tube panels and logos have been wet painted in place.

Why Vanderkitten? Because the founder, Dave Verrecchia, has been a loyal customer since our humble beginnings. From steel slalom frames to aluminum slalom frames to downhill frames to freeride hardtails, Dave has ridden basically every frame we produce. With Dave's enthusiasm for new product development, a unique partnership has been evolving for
many years. This partnership has grown to include the unique Vanderkitten hardtail, now road frames and in the very near future cyclocross frames.

Do you want to ride faster? Descend with more confidence? Show off your frame to jealous friends and family? Be a part of something unique? You've come to the right place!
