Lugged Frame

A few weeks ago, I came across this lugged frame. I was impressed by the overall finish and learned that it was a Taiwanese-made frame. This is not an OEM frame, but more of a boutique-ish frame that’s available only locally in Taiwan.We do not sell this frameset.

Velocite Geos Prototype Budget Weight Weenie

Velocite Geos prototype and components

I’m pretty happy to say that my next carbon fiber bike is getting put together. It took a little while longer to source all of the parts as I was trying to keep costs as low as possible. This involved trying to use second-hand or slightly used gear, but in the end, all of it is new. As I write this post, I only have to receive the Power Cordz before we put this thing together.

AH had decided upon using a custom paint job thanks to Pinarello’s My Way customization scheme, which makes this frame stand out from the traditional Dogmas. He also ordered the Di2-compatible frame, which allows internal wiring of Shimano’s Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting group.
