Subrosa pro Hoang Tran is currently riding a new version of his Villicus frame named the Villicus Infinity. This is the 5th version of Hoang’s Villicus frame and it’s by far the best! Check out the details and spec here!
Hoang shot a ton of pics of his new bike for you guys to check out. He shot this bike check in his workshop, and included some really cool shots of some of his past signature Subrosa parts from over the years. Can you spot them all?
When it comes to the geometry of his frames, Hoang knows what he likes, and knows what works, so he’s had his geometry dialed for a while. One thing that we did change on the Villicus Infinity is we added 10mm to the head tube length. Taller head tube reduces the amount of required spacers under your stem for riders that prefer a high stack height. This also relieves pressure on the fork steerer tube, which is a very high stress area. It also increase strength and stability in the frame by creating a larger front triangle (or box).
As for the rest of the frame it still features all the outstanding details that the Villicus is know for as far as the full chromoly butted tube set, custom Subrosa down tube gusset, custom casted Subrosa wishbone, and custom dropouts with built in hidden chain tensioners.
You know we went over the top with the paint and decals! The Cosmic Red colorway feature metallic flake and custom smoke throughout the entire frame! The high gloss clear coat keeps it protected. The smoke is a special process which will be different on each version, so every frame will be unique. There will also be a Black version with purple and green decals!
The The decals on this bike are true to the Villicus name and as always will stand out in a sea of flat black bikes wherever you ride it. Covering almost the entire length of the top tube these graphics will have everyone stopping you to check them out!
The Villicus Infinity will be available worldwide in March.
