We know how some of you feel about titanium bikes. Add in belt drive compatibility and a choice of freak, sorry, niche options and there’s a whole Singletrack Forum thread here waiting to happen. For those of you that are so inclined, Why Cycles now has a UK distributor, Cyclorise – who already distribute Why’s sibling brand, Revel.
Started in early 2016 by Adam Miller and a team of industry veterans that later went on to launch
Revel, Why Cycles offers titanium hardtails and adventure bikes. Most models in the line-up are Gates Belt Drive compatible and are crafted by hand in China.
I’m thrilled to see our brand of meticulously made, modern titanium bikes officially make it into the UK market. Cyclorise has been an incredible partner for Revel bikes so far, and I cannot wait to see what they do with our more niche-oriented sister brand, Why Cycles.Why Cycles owner, Adam Miller
I personally have a huge passion for boutique titanium hardtails. Why Cycles offer an alternative product range which represents sublime quality and attention to detail. Offering Why Cycles to the UK market is a great start for Cyclorise in 2021 which undoubtedly is going to be another year of significant growth for our business.Cyclorise Director, Thomas Dibley
There are six bikes in the line up to choose from:
Bike-packing friendly, up to 2.6″ tyres but with geometry and pace for epic-distance racing
120mm fork, up to 29×3.0″ tyres and enough accessory mounts to tour the Baja divide. The Wayward is the ultimate off-road bike packing adventure bike, built around a 40mm stem and a long dropper post. Belt-drive compatible.
140mm fork, hardcore hardtail geometry, but with full length mudguard and pannier rack mounts. Belt-drive compatible.
A true gravel-bike. Add big knobbly 700c tyres, or a Lauf fork. Load it up withg enough kit to ride the globe or just thrash it to work your local fire roads.
A 27.5×4″ fat bike. Belt drive compatible.
The jump bike you never thought you needed. Belt-drive compatible dirt merchant in titanium, unusually built for 27.5″ wheels.
The bikes are available as frame only or as complete builds through discussion with Cyclorise, with frames starting in the region of £1,200.
