Here at TIRED MAG, we’ve got a soft spot for beauty on two wheels, and Gee Milner always knocks his bike builds out of the park! We wouldn’t mind adding this particular Van Nicholas Rowtag to our stable – a titanium bike built for the riders who seek out adventure wherever they go.
The Rowtag is described by Van Nicholas as a bike that is “designed to be the most fun, in the most places. Supremely balanced geometry combined with multiple mounts, wheel and transmission configurations make this gravel racer the ideal companion for any adventure.”
Starting at €3,449.00, it’s definitely not the cheapest option out there, but it also comes in a decent spec, and let’s not forget the titanium frame. The base model comes with a Shimano GRX RX400 2×10-spd group set, Mavic Allroad Disc wheels, Panaracer Gravelking rubber and VNT parts on the handlebar, stem, seat and seatpost.
For this Dream Build, Gee went for Shimano’s GRX DI2 groupset, a Shimano Pro finishing kit, FF carbon wheels, a Fabric Ti rail saddle and Pirelli Cinturato gravel tyres, which puts his build in a completely different league – just the GRX DI2 group set comes in at €1,439.00.
