Branded in Estonia, manufactured in China. I'm involved with the company, so don't want to be accused of advertisement:)... you can see more at velonia.com. This is my personal ride that I'm very happy with. It wouldn't be hard to get it under 6kg (saddle, stem, bar and 38mm wheels and voila), but I just don't feel the need atm...

I love this bike. The graphics are subtle and the pink really pops. Is that an official Red "pink" group or did you modify it?

I checked out your website. Viks bike is CRAAAAAAAZY: http://velonia.com/viks.html

I just viewed the geometry. It seems like a well sorted road frame. The 58 has a nice, slightly steeper HTA, short wheelbase, stays and my favorite of all specs, the generous bb drop. I'll assume cornering and steep descents are something you constantly look forward too, provided stiffness is not an issue.
awesome design. bravo.

Very nice bike! I like the overall look and the pink sets it off nicely.

Also, please tell me more about your tuned Arundel cages, as I have the same cages, and while not heavy at 27g a piece, I would bbe interested in dropping a few grams off of each.

the full fleet... commuter, mtb & roadie... 27kg all together :lol:

About the Arundel, I just cut of the upper "hook" that holds on the bottle from top... Actually the main reason for that was not the weight, but the grip that was just too tight... all my tacx bottles were squished. Now it's much better. Still a firm grip but without destroying the bidons...

Yes it's the 029 mold, with some extras...

The pink tape is just glued to the black tape (ends are glued together with superglue), and wrapped like usual... Has been holding on very well. When I tried to pull them apart, the tape started to crack from other places not from the glue line.

The Viks actually looks really cool, kinda new take on the old Copenhagen bike. The other bikes is just a nicer paint job, let's call it 'Project 2' :P
