It is not enough simply for our bikes to look beautiful, they must also perform exceptionally. And exceptional performance is wasted if our bikes cannot stand up to everyday use. Our sole aim is to create the best frames possible for their intended application and we believe that only aerospace grade Titanium possesses the unique blend of properties to enable us to achieve this objective.
Dutch and proud
We began life as a Dutch family company before becoming part of the famous Dutch bike brand Koga in 2012. Every member of our team is mindful of the proud tradition of cycling in Holland and shares a passion for this legacy of innovation in form and function. We are all united in our quest to achieve perfection in modern bicycle design; in constructing our bikes to the highest possible standard; in unparalleled customer service; in delivering the Van Nicholas experience with pride. We are dedicated to providing the ride of a lifetime, for a lifetime of riding, wherever you are in the world.
Technology & Craftmanship
The central tenet of our philosophy is simple, old-fashioned craftsmanship. No one cares more about the finished product than the skilled workers who put their names to it. The designer, the fabricator, the mechanic. But believing in craftsmanship does not mean we ignore modern technologies. We are constantly seeking to evolve. For example we created the first Seamless Hydroformed Titanium frame. And a divisible road handlebar, specially designed for the Rohloff Speedhub – yes, we also design and manufacture our own range of state-of-the-art apparel and components. And we can even custom-build you the ultimate bicycle – tailored to your individual dimensions, bespoke, unique.
We believe that ‘Nothing Looks, Rides, Lasts like Titanium’. But don’t take our word for it, please see for yourself. We hope you’ll come to agree with us.
