Volume Bikes: The Ambiguous 26″ Vandal

Ambiguity is Volume‘s friend in this case. The Vandal is their new 26″ frameset. While they’re not tagging it a fixed freestyle frame and they’re not saying it’s a dirt jumper, they are implying that it can be used for either. Which is why I think the 26″ fixed movement is in a slightly ambiguous position at the moment. Why not just run it freewheel and fixed? I’d be down to see an edit with this bike hitting some dirt and doing some fakie lines. Until people start really pushing the 26″ fixed thing to new levels, I will continue to say that 700c is more my preference.
