This frame is sick, sick, SICK! Can't speak for the complete stock build as I spec'd mine just the way I wanted it, but the frame has done everything I've asked of it without so much as a WTF? Ultracross races, S240 bikepacking adventures, daily commutes and still capable of handling the weekday group rides over the winter. Heck, I've even thrown down on some local singletrack with this rig! Next stop, fully loaded for a weeklong ride along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Vaya Ti has earned my unwavering love and affection.
Sure, you could go stock or generic OEM, but if you're gonna go new skewers, ya might as well go all the way. Sure, they're a few quid more than some "me too" replacement players, but if you want a piece of gear that not only excels in both form AND function, stop looking and buy now. Don't want bling or matchy-match? Hide behind silver and black and know you've got wheel security covered. Want both? Rock the killer ano colors and get all freaky with it! Looks as good on a high-zoot custom race rig as it does on your steel SS commuter!
