The Volagi Viaje steel framed disc brake road bike has successfully closed it’s Kickstarter Campaign, raising $23,000 and change more than they needed.
If you were fortunate enough to snag one through the fundraising campaign, you’ve got two bits of good news coming: First, you got one helluva deal. Second, frames start delivering in late November if you chose the 4130 chromoly Viaje XL frame, and early December for complete bikes. If you went for the higher end Viaje SL with Columbus Spirit tubing, you’re looking at a February delivery and something else to fall in love with around Valentines Day.
Volagi’s chief-of-everything-except-bike-design Susan Forsman told us they have about 1,000 frames in production between the two models, so inventory should be good for anyone looking to grab one post-Kickstarter. XL frames will be $1,195 and SL’s are $1,495. Both include their fork, which is a bit taller than the Liscio’s and has a full 1.5″ taper at the bottom. And fender mounts.
Now, about that gorgeous flat bar build above: That’s the showstopper they had at Interbike, and we just got it in and built for a full review here at Bikerumor! Look for a weigh-in and first impressions soon.
