Dutch firm Van Nicholas is doing more than most to make titanium bikes accessible, and the Ventus SE is its best value model.
As it doesn’t rust or corrode, titanium is usually left ‘raw’ on bike frames. While the finish may look sober compared to the paintwork of other models, it has a classy appeal.
The tubes used to form the Ventus SE’s frame are less manipulated than those higher up in Van Nicholas’s range and are of a round cross-section. This gives the frame a traditional, clean look that is only interrupted by the externally routed cables.
There are some high-quality touches, too: the ‘V’ insignia cut into the rear drop-outs are a very nice touch.
The frame decal on the seat tube that reads “Nothing looks rides lasts like Titanium” raised a smile.
