Visp-a Concept

Visp TRXNL-2 Coomer said it rides like a Cadillac! (I think he was calling me fat) Sold 6/23/11. I really loved this bike and only sold it because I bought a Fuji track pro from nashbar and didn't want both. The visp is by far my favorite budget aluminum frame and honestly I think it's better than a leader for urban riding. It's no Mash Cinelli, but it's more than worth what I paid for it. The guy who bought it got a great deal built up with full carbon fork and the mavic cxp30s/dura ace rear. All in all I lost some money but I got two or three amazing months with this bike, and am really glad to show it off immortalized on this site.

More Info:
really pretty pleased. second day with the velocitys i rode it 68 miles, fueled by chai lattes. Gave this the stealth treatment and even though it's heavy and kind of a bulldozer, i like it a lot. *sold*

hi, very nice build. my condolences.
how did you like the concor in coparison to the zoncolan in terms of comfort?

charlie says:

for the seating position of this bike, the zoncolan was far more comfortable on long rides, but the concor was very comfortable on the top of the bars. with a more traditional seating position, or for a bar with less drop, the concor fit me very well.

Do Visp frames run small? I heard you mention on another page saying the 55 felt like a 53?

Awesome job. Looks like a ninja!

Say, where can I pick up a Visp frame? I'm deciding between that and a Leader 721, and I can't find it on eBay or anywhere else.

charlie says:

mycycool is the ebay seller. it's just listed under 'track frame' usually or 'track bike'. and honestly the visp is a shit deal right now considering nashbar is clearing out FTP frames. i am selling this now that my FTP frame has shipped.

Charlie, can i ask, how did you remove the VISP decals from the frame?

Posted over 7 years ago

charlie

charlie says:

The TRXNL-2 comes without logos. it's a flat black paint job, not as nice or durable as the glossy logoed ones but it's flat with no stickers or logos.

charlie says:

it's kind of funny, if i could find a 2008 concept i'd sell a baby for one, but the super pista does next to nothing for me. This bike is great for a beat around town bike. Paint's already hurtin'

Looks more like a 725 than a Bianchi. At any rate, I think this is the first Visp I've actually liked. Well done Charles!

Posted over 7 years ago

charlie

charlie says:

It does... the downtube and top tube are very similar to the rush hour pro and leader, but I think they use much much heavier stock for the stays, st and ht. Still, I like the bike and it's far cheaper than a 725 and just about as stiff. I'd really like to do a side by side comparison of the frames to see what differences there are, if any.

I know my VISP frame was not far off of dog shit. The seat stays were crooked as was the chain stays. I dident think it was as smooth of a ride as the leader either. Its worth the $130 but id recommend getting a solid frame. You put time and money into a nice bike, i wouldent skimp on the frame. Im only saying this from experience. The bike looks sharp as hell tho, none the less. Nicely done my man

charlie says:

Thanks, yeah it's no work of art but honestly i don't think it's that much worse than other bikes i've ridden that are up to 500 for the frameset.

Nice man! great frame for the money! I enjoyed mine! Did you have seatpost fitting issues?

Posted over 7 years ago

charlie

charlie says:

I was super careful when tightening the clamp. the tube is big for a 27.2 and the binder bolt threads weren't quite right for how much it had to pull, but still very happy so far.

Benson says:

DONOT ADJUST YOUR SEATPOST EVER AGAIN I adjusted it a few times and SNAP I pulled the threads right off -____- I put a soda can shim and filed down the female side flat and put a bolt there.
