Van Nicholas Pioneer Rohloff Titanium Touring Bike Information

Brand : Van Nicholas


The ultimate expedition-touring bike with the award winning 14-gear Rohloff hub for low maintenance smooth shifting, anywhere you want to go.


The ultimate expedition touring bike must be strong, adaptable, safe but above all reliable in even the most demanding terrain and conditions.


In designing the Pioneer, our first aim was to create a bike that had as little as possible that could go wrong: so no hydraulic cables, no derailleurs and no front suspension. Simple, yes, but we haven’t skimped on the materials.


Full 3Al/2.5V Ti construction using aerospace-grade, cold-worked, tapered and size-specific and multi-shaped tubing with CNC machined detailing. Available in 48, 52, 55, 58cm & Tailormade.

Lifetime Frame Warranty

Titanium won’t rust, corrode or break down. We are extremely proud of our products. This is why we guarantee our frames for life
Crash Replacement Warranty

If a Van Nicholas Titanium frame is damaged in an accident not covered by our manufacturer warranty, we will provide a replacement frame for 50% of the current value.
Warranty Re-Certification

Consumers wanting to sell or purchase a used van Nicholas Titanium bicycle or frame can send it directly to our office for Re-Certification and the issue of a new manufacturer’s warranty.
Hand Brushed Finish

We think the best way to showcase our Titanium frames it is to hand brush them to bring out the natural brightness
Van Nicholas Seamless Optiformed Ti Tubing

To ensure a perfect bike fit, we automatically adjust the tubing for bigger frame sizes.
Engraved Head Tube Logo

We etch our classic logo directly onto the head tube, so everyone will know the bike you’re riding is a Van Nicholas.
Eccentric Bottom Bracket

This allows minor adjustments to be made to ensure correct chain tension on bikes where adjustments cannot be made in the rear section.
Internal Headset

By locating the bearings in the head tube there are fewer parts, lower weight and reduced maintenance.
CNC Machined Dropouts

Machined to perfection form one single plate. Built to cope with high stresses, with a sophisticated look.
Belt Drive Ready

Lighter, cleaner and quieter than a regular chain. The ideal choice for commuter and tourer alike.
Rohloff Gearing System

The award-winning 14-gear enclosed Rohloff hub offers smooth, almost unnoticeable shifting, even when stationary.
Fender Mounts

Allows for the fitting of fenders to enable safe, spray-free all-weather riding.
Rack Mounts

Provision for the attachment of pannier racks and increase comfortable load-carrying capabilities.
3rd Water Bottle Bosses
