When the decals where done for Hoang Tran’s new signature Villicus Infinity, I knew that was going to be my next new bike. These frames aren’t available until March, but being in charge has it’s perks, so I built up a production sample. Take a look at my set up that I’ve dubbed Green Hell.
The frame is the 5th version of Hoang’s signature Villicus. Here’s some heartbreaking news, this is called the Villicus Infinity because it’s the last version of Villicus that we’ll be producing. Dry you eyes though, Hoang’s not going anywhere, and this is the best version to date.
The biggest change from the Villicus Prime II is a taller headtube. The headtube is CNC machined, and Deathproof heat-treated. We lengthened it to 125mm to increase strength and stability of the front of the bike, and to eliminated the need to run a ton of headset spacers.
The rear end to 13.5″ with room to remove the wheel. The dropouts have built in chain tensioners that are hidden and work amazingly! It’s so easy to set where you want your wheel and to adjust your chain. It dialing your bike so easy!
The Villicus Infinity is available in Black and Cosmic Red and will be in stores and mail-orders worldwide in March.
