VYNL Bikes - any advice?

Hi everyone!

I am considering to change bike and build myself a custom crit/short flat races bike.

I just can’t stand that I can’t customize most of the commercialy available bikes (in terms of gears, handlebars, stem, etc…), Unless I buy extra new components.

I am looking at VYNL bike, the road rim frame. I would then use my Enve 7.8 tubular and complete it with a 1x force AXS + either Easton or black inc cockpit.

I currently have a 2018 TCR advanced pro 1 rim brake, and I have ridden ALU bikes in the past.

Any advice on how the VYNL frame is?

Do you like the ride or not? Why?

I live in a VERY FLAT area. Within a few hours drive the biggest hill is a overpass (or a car garage). I mostly do races on Zwift/Similar platforms and flat Crits.

If everything goes as planned I am thinking to get a Giant TCX as all rounder (it is an aggressive CX bike with room for bigger tires).

Never heard of VYNL bikes. Are they owned by Wahoo?

They are the bikes ridden by cliff bar racing.

I’m on the process of doing similar. Currently riding a 2018 TCR disc and have parts coming in to build up a kinesis Aithein aluminum race bike.

Those Vnyl frames seem pricey for what you get and I’ve heard they ride quite harshly. The Bowman palace is another option for a good bit less money
