It’s been a while since we’ve seen Woho, and they’ve grown quite a bit since they launched their mini tool on Kickstarter in 2015. Now, they have a complete line of frame bags for touring and adventure riding, plus this very affordable steel bike called the Wildcard. With a frameset retail of just $660, the Wildcard gives you a butted, corrosion resistant treated chromoly steel frame with mounts for every conceivable bag, accessory holder and more.
And thanks to interchangeable dropouts, it’ll work with any road bike axle standard and fit some trailer mounts without clearance issues at the brakes. Accessory and bag mounting points litter every tube and the fork legs, letting you use any (or all) of their available bags:
We especially like their saddle bag stabilizer, which mounts to your saddle’s rails and extends back, then down, to capture the bag and prevent (or at least minimize) it from swaying side to side. And gives you two more water bottle cage mounting points.
If you’re looking for something sportier, their new Double Ace Ti as a gravel race bike, which reduces the mount count in favor of lighter weight and speed.
It brings the max tire size down (slightly) to 700×40 or 650×47, runs cables inside the front triangle and adds routing for a dropper post (if you skip the front derailleur).
There’s also a steel Double Ace, using Columbus Life and Max tubing and revised tube shaping for a ride that slightly emphasizes comfort over pure speed. The chainstays have a bend, the top tube sits a little lower to improve standover clearance, and it adds interchangeable dropouts.
Both models use a PFBB30 (versus the Wildcard’s threaded BB). The ti model gets a straight 44mm headtube tapered headtube, steel model uses a regular tapered headtube, both with a with carbon fork. Retail prices TBD.
