Bike bag and accessories specialist WOHO has expanded into the bike market and launched two new models: the steel Double Ace and the titanium-framed Double Ace Ti.
Both bikes are based on the same geometry, which WOHO describes as sporty enough for full-on gravel racers but not too much of a handful for adventure riders and long haulers.
The Ti uses 3Al-2.5v titanium tubing with a purposefully oversized bottom bracket and a large diameter down tube for max pedalling efficiency and stability in the rough stuff.
The frame is compatible with 1x and 2x setups, and cleverly features internal routing for a dropper post. Clearance is a generous 40c on a 700 or 47c on a 650b tyre.
The standard Double Ace uses a mix of Columbus Life chromoly steel and Max tubing, custom-sized to WOHO’s specification.
While the steering geometry is consistent with the Ti, the steel bike does have a much more sloping top tube. The frame is ED coated for its anti-corrosion properties and features a full host of rack and guard mounts, unlike the more stripped down Ti model, which makes do with three sets of bottle bosses.
No details on prices just yet.
WOHO has also released new fork cage mounts, called Transforkage, and a neat take on the ass-saver style guard.
The Transforkage cages are two-bolt compatible and the stiff CNC alloy should keep bags and wheels apart. If you need bigger than the standard cage, WOHO says you can double up on the cages using all three bolts on the fork. Pricing is currently TBC.
The $25 ShovelFender looks like your standard ass-saver but is machined out of plate aluminium and, like the fork cage, comes in a myriad of anodised colours.
Smartly, the rear guard is also machined with bolt holes, so it can double up as a down tube guard mounting on your under-tube bottle bosses. WOHO also says that it makes a handy trowel.
