SUB (Sarah Ulmer Brand) is a new brand for 2006, supported and distributed by the Avanti Bicycle Co. SUB has basically replaced all of Avanti's women's specific bikes. Designed by Sarah Ulmer, world individual pursuit champion, they are spec'd by and for women and this results in bikes that fits and suits women like no other range.

WTF!?!?

It's a shame they haven't gone the whole hog and put forward a full Durace bike...

Most women are more interested in performance than labels on their parts, plus if they stick with ultegra they can buy more jewellery and makeup :lol:

I know plenty of women who are interested in labels!
Just watching the female reps at work fussing over some Trelise Cooper outfit is proof of this :D

Sarah Ulmer rode to the top level and used Durace.
But her signature bikes don't.
It's a shame.

Clothes are different, bike bits they can't see the point, other girls aren't impressed by durace, but they are if you have a designer handbag :sly:

By not selling bikes with dura ace, they are immediatley limiting themselves to just fitness and not racing which is a shame.

Maybe establishing a customer base/name first, then diversifying out to higher spec road bikes (and maybe a MTB with more than 63mm of travel..) :eh:

There's going to be a bit about her and her brand on Campbell Live tonight :)

Hmmmm...
Sarah Ulmer was on the front of my Porter House steak (for some reason)... heck she's even on the wall of our workshop (McDonalds life sized cut-out).

nope they have now got a womens flat bar range called sub - lime, with shorter TT length, narrow bars, ladies saddle etc

so in reality the range is an expansion on what they stated with the Vitale and Vitale pro last season
