It’s been said that ‘All Good Things Must Come to an End’
Well, while that is the case for True Temper bicycle tubing, there is a ‘steel’ lining.
Several months back, True Temper announced that they will ending their production of bicycle tubing. For us, this was a concern as we are one of the largest users of True Temper OX Platinum and S3 tubing in the business. A lot of our customers were asking us “what are you guys going to do?”
Our concerns were quickly alleviated when Randy of Vari-Wall contacted us with some great news. Vari-Wall was set to develop a replacement line. We were in the middle of trying to decide how we would replace True Temper tubing for our super-light steel bike frames, when he called and actually made us a big part of designing a replacement line.
Vari-Wall is no stranger to the bicycle tubing world. In fact, they began their business in 1985 as a bicycle tubing manufacturer. Their professional, ‘can-do’ attitude is much appreciated by a company like ours. It’s been fantastic working directly with them to develop a replacement line of tubing for the OX Platinum and S3 tubing that we’ve become so accustomed to building with.
So, as 2017 begins, we can breath a great big sigh of relief! We now have even BETTER American Made high performance, light-weight steel tubing options to offer you. Not only that, but we’ve even had all of our input considered for the actual design of the new product! We’re stoked to say the least!
You’ll see on our website that Vari-Wall tubing begins to replace the True Temper offerings as the Vari-Wall options come on-line.
Vari-Wall and R+E Cycles are going to make a great team!
