Vassago's newest frame is designed to be a modern day Race inspired SS titanium bike. Are you one of those folks that are looking for the fastest, lightest, XC rocket for tearing up NORBA courses (that's old school right there... look it up youngsters), but still want the benefits of modern geo and handling? This is the bike you are looking for!
The Optimus race is built from the ground up to be a race thoroughbred of TI SS frames.
