Fatcreations Showing VAARU Cycles at Rouleur Classic

Three first-class custom-painted VAARU Cycles are being shown by UK’s best painthouse, Fatcreations. at Rouleur Classic this week.

“Alistair taught me to paint my first crash helmet 20 years ago when I was only 15. We’ve worked in the bike industry together for many years and naturally Fatcreations is the only paintshop I would ever use. Ali sees a huge variety of frames come through his workshop and has always been complimentary of the design and quality of our VAARU Cycles and for him to choose to show our frames has been a real boost for us. 90 hours have been spent preparing three extremely special custom painted frames for the visitors of Rouleur Classic.”  James Beresford, VAARU Cycles

MPA | Copper Leaf | Cream Paint

This isn’t an ordinary titanium distance road frame, this VAARU MPA has been gilded with copper leaf and finished with cream and graphite paint. It’s a classic take on a very modern titanium frame. The MPA has thru-axle front and rear along with Shimano flatmount caliper mounts. The frame is versatile as Di2 or mechanical groupsets can be used with the same internal cable guides. Mudguard mounts and rear pannier mounts make it a bike for the faster long haul.

MPA 56cm frame

F:140 full carbon forks

Zipp Course Stem

Octane 6-4 SL | Mirror Polished | Candy Red Paint

The inspiration for this bike is the iconic 1965 Ford Mustang Fastback GT350. The Octane 6-4 6AL/4V titanium frame has been mirror polished to replicate the chrome detail of the car and painted in candy red and finished with Shelby white stripes. Hexagonal detail is on the handlebars and forks inspired by the chrome grill of the Mustang.
