    Viner anyone?

    Anybody have one of their bikes? Really curious about the modern offerings...

    I picked this cx frame up really cheap and I've been pleased with it. I don't suppose I'm likely to actually go out and buy any of their high end road bikes (I have a Look 585) but they sure do look interesting.

    I did enough research to see that a few importers have made these available over here recently.

    excellent bike,

    i had an old steel Viner which was excellent. a u.k magazine did a review on a modern carbon road frame/bike of Viner. the guy testing said it was the best bike he's ever ridden. could be u.k cycling magazine or something like that

    It's a 52 by their sizing. I'm 5'11" and ride a size large Look 585 on the road. Still really love this bike too- it handles really really well for me and fits great.

    It's also evolved a bit (actually even since this picture too... I've added 38/48 salsa chainrings, newer 303/404 tubulars with tufo flexus cubus and a bontrager rxl road saddle) but here is one from this years setup (7800 and TRP brakes).

    Viner

    I had a Viner back in the 70's when they started being imported into the UK. It was beautiful, with white pearl paint, cut-out lugs and fully pantographed equipment. It handled beautifully as well. The current model range seem to me to have lost their former elegance. Perhaps the titanium model would tempt me. Unfortunately it has always been a badly-known brand. Pity.

    I had a MR alu. 2 or something like that for a while. Early 2000's frame, all aluminum with a 1" headtube. Stiff, quick and a good climber. A great all-around frame that I certainly miss. Had to liquidate my stable a while ago, unfortunately, or I'd still be riding it. Love to have another some day.

    Interesting- https://vineristi.wordpress.com/ still lists the blog entry title in the column on the right, but the entry itself is gone:
