One of these arrived today :hyper:

Verenti-Substance-II-Apex-100.jpg

It's a Verenti Substance II Apex1

Not the most flattering pic, it's pinched from t'internet, but you get the idea... It's well-specced, flat-mount hydro-discs, 1x11 gears, tubeless ready et cetera... Steel framed too, so that makes me happy!

Super-excited to get out on it this weekend, on/off-road adventures await :becool:

I've been dipping a toe in the Gravel Bike world lately with an elderly CB I've half-assedly converted, and it's a whole lot of fun, as well as being well-suited to my neck of the woods....

Apparently Verenti are Wiggles in-house brand, never heard of them before this popped up on my radar, does anyone here have any experience of them?​

That’s a lovely looking bike indeed, great spec too! That locking clutch on the rear derailleur is handy when removing the rear wheel - so easy and minimum mess!

Just sent a link to a mate, exactly what he’s after. I’m going to take his temperature if he doesn’t order one!

I've got the 2016 Verenti Technique Sora road bike for winter, they are Wiggles in-house brand, and I'm well pleased with mine, I really can't fault it for what it cost, it's blinged up a bit now with Shimano WH501 wheels, Deda Elementi handlebars & stem along with a Selle Italia Saddle, but it's a really nice bike.

Got a Verenti substance Sora 2016 model. Can do 50 mile road rides or hammer it about off road. Seem to be great value bikes.

Hey any more feedback on this I am seriously thinking of getting one ...

Seems to be ticking all the right boxes and at a killer price on CRC ~£860

Aye, was out on it today, did 40k, a good mix of both road and off-road - I really rate this bike :smile: Does well on the road, comfy and a decent spread of gears, and it's great off-road too, confidence inspiring...

I've done the same route as we did today previously on a Trek Cross-Rip Elite, and the Verenti was much more planted on the fast-ish off-road downhills, ann no slower on the road section. It's generally more comfortable too, I reckon the steel frame is the reason.

The standard saddle isn't the prettiest, but is comfier than I expected...

That's a good price - I'd be tempted by that, the spec. on this bike is very good for that sort of money :smile:

My substance on the road up to competa, weighs about 4kg more than my road bike but took me everywhere I wanted to go in comfort... Those flared bars though...
