So, here it is, the mighty VISP.
My daily pig, aka Dangermouse.
It gets ridden a lot, every day, quite hard as you might be able to tell. Yes it looks liek a piece of shit, yes it’s a dodgy build… meh, thats what i’m like
VISP Frame: 58cm (it’s not even close, it’s more like 54-56 C-C)
Standard fork (“matte black by ironlak”), standard Cane Creek headset, Easton EA70 seatpost & stem (2nd hand, from donor bike), Sugino messenger cranks + 46T ring, generic pedals/cages/straps, KMC Kool BMX chain, Alex G6000 rims, Formula hubs, Shimano 17t rear cog, Surly lockring, crappy old worn out Selle Italia saddle, generic riser bars (“matte black by ironlak”), black old school Ourys, alternating between Vittoria Randonneurs (700/28) and CST Czar (700/23) tyres (cst for skids, randos for proper riding)… I forget what the bb is, something mid range.
yeah i’ve kinda let that one slide, there’s plenty of contact area and it’s very sturdy. it is on the list of things to do…
it’s held up really well, took a nasty hit by a car and was totally fine… my daily abuse notwithstanding
toe overlap is pretty non existent, especially with clips. if i was running strap-ons it’d probably be a different story.
yeah, it is a 58… fixed
You could buy my Visp in the complete bikes section and modify it to your hearts content…
I found the opposite about clips/strapons. Cleats had heaps of overlap, clips some overlap, but because you can still move your foot around in strapons it’s a non-issue, even if it were to hit it’s just your soft show not a metal clip.
