THE TX-1200 Gates. POWERED BY PINION.

 

 

REVOLUTIONARY SWITCHING TECHNOLOGY IN THE NEXT GENERATION EXPEDITION BIKES.

 

 

In gentle serpentines, the lonely path is meandering through a small forest and getting lost in the dust in the wide plain on the horizon. The noise and the frantic pace of the metropolitan area are by now far behind you. You are taking a deep breath. The only thing to be heard is the steady whirr of the Schwalbe tires that reliably dig into the gravel. You imagine the smooth shifting of the gears in the Pinion gear box more than you feel it. “Is this what freedom feels like ...?” buzzes through your head, briefly. Then you turn off all thought and nothing exists anymore other than you, your bike, and your path. And it feels like you could simply keep on riding forever and ever ... getting disentangled, overcoming limits, gaining distance. For all those who love the adventure, for all those who want to get further, and for all those who seek the great expanse, we have developed the TX-1200 Pinion P2 With the most modern shifting technology by Pinion, a hand-manufactured steel frame in tried and tested vsf manufaktur quality and high quality, long-lasting components, we have created an expedition bike that sets new standards in terms of reliability, resilience, handling characteristics and comfort. See the unique characteristics of the new highlights of vsf fahrradmanufaktur for yourself. The TX-1200 powered by Pinion. At home on the road.

Oldenburger Manufacturing quality meets Stuttgart art of Enginieering

 

Two specialists share a passion: building better bicycles. We, at vsf fahradmanufaktur, have always been representative of the highest expectations in terms of comfort, fun driving, and longevity. To constantly develop our quality claim further, we constantly monitor current developments and innovations in the two-wheeler scene. As such, it is only logical that we now – with the TX-1200 Gates – for the first time equip a vsf fahrradmanufaktur bicycle with the innovative Pinion P2 gear unit. The TX-1200 Gates combines the sophisticated engineering from automotive construction with German manufacturing quality into an expedition bike of extra class.
