The view from the front. We're not sure if we like the white and blue colour scheme or not. It'll certainly require a "thoughtful" build kit.

Caffelatex Tubeless Kit from Effeto Mariposa. Apparently it fills your tyre with bubbley foam stuff for better all-round sealing.

    that virtue is perrrrty

    Hmmmm lovely 🙂

    That’s in ‘just right’ green, that is… Nice.

    “It’ll certainly require a “thoughtful” build kit.”

    Not Chipps’ strong suit I’d have thought. I submit as evidence the Orange Blood.

    That Mojo *needs* some blue Magura Thors, no?

    blue Thors, blue Juicy ultimates, Blue Industry Nine wheels with white spokes – blue mortgage to pay for it all 😉

    Is that the new Mojo by Twyfords?

    I can’t wait to see how you ruin that mojo with multicoloured crapness!

    Ibis needs some pink and the Kinesis needs some purple.

    I need that Ibis, anyone want to buy a lung?

    dave360 – the Virsa will be getting black and grey bits. Sorry 😉

    Some of the welding on that Virsa looks a bit agricultural, actually I have done better welds on agricultural equipment 😉

    Mojo looks nice, very nice 😀

    Welding looks perfectly acceptable for a £350 frame IMHO.

    Virsa looks sweet. The Ibis just rocks.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but the virsa has swapouts so you can run SS but the disc mounts have no slots so you can’t adjust the brakes when you move the wheel. (or am I missing something?)

    Looks nice tho.

    Looks like I might have the Virsa built up by the weekend :-O

    With minimal bodging and raiding-of-other-bikes too…

    Just need to buy a chain really.

    And the squidgy back brake feels like it needs a bleed. Oh well.

    shame did not include a split drop out for a belt – though looks an easy mod

    ps my comment was about kinesis thing

    Virsa looks nice, but i was thinking the same thing as DONK. how will the rear disc work with horizontal dropouts but no slotted disc mounts???
