anyone had this VISP road frame?

Postby jeff_o » Mon Jan 16, 2012 4:53 pm

Just wondering if anyone from BNA knew or personally got these cheap frames off ebay? I read the seller ratings angd it seems only a handful isolated ones had issues but thousands were happy. I see a lot of AUS buyers too. I'm thinking about getting one as it's cheap alum frame but not sure.

I have the track version i got cheaply off ebay. no problems with it. seems to be built well enough. chainstay could be a tad longer (not an issue on a roadie).

Hmmm.... if you look at neutral/negative feedback, seems they have some quality control issues.

And given the frame sizing, the shortness of the head tube in the larger sizes seems a bit unusual.
