Exclusive Sneak peek: First complete bike shots of new Verenti bikes - now with video

First look pics of the Verenti Rhigos, Millook and Kilmeston

We were down in Portsmouth on Friday to have a look at the new Verenti bikes in the flesh. There's three frames: the lugged carbon Rhigos, which we showed you pics of earlier in the week; The Millook, a Superlight alloy front end mated with the same Carbon rear as the Rhigos; and the Kilmeston, an Aluminium training/entry level sportive bike that comes with a Carbon fork and full mudguards.

The range starts at £850, but once the new SRAM groupset – more on that when we have it – hits these shores there'll be a £700 version of the Kilmeston too, and a sub £1k Millook, which currently sports SRAM Rival running gear.

We'll post a full story here when we've written up our hastily-scribbled notes, but in the meantime we thought you'd like to look at the bikes. So here they are! Check out the curved down tube on the Rhigos, and the little decals that are maps to the three climbs from Wiggle HQ...
