Jack of all trades, master of none. Like all things Vassago, (except maybe our beer glasses) the Fisticuff is not for everybody.
The Fisticuff has been around LONG before the current "gravel bike" craze and is still doing its thing - Think of it as a ‘cross-inspired bike with a bit of a ‘roid problem. In this case, that's a very good thing. We beefed up the frame and fork in all the right places and the result is a 'cross style bike that responds like a mountain bike in the rough stuff. More than simply adding tire clearance to a 'cross frame, the Fisticuff fits the monstercross nomenclature by way of its trail-bike tube set, drop bar geometry, straight blade fork and all around badassness. Yes, it is a word.
Whether you're looking for a cross bike, a burly commuter, a gravel grinder, the Fisticuff is your huckleberry.
The new 2018 Fisticuff has been redesigned from the ground up with sweet new features! Interchangeable dropouts for through axles, S-bend seat and chainstays, updated tubing, a tapered headtube, and new through axle fork make the Fisti the best value in bad-ass super tough gravel machines
