The same for me, but they look really nice. I went to see on there site and the other two models seem also nice. Your build looks like a solid race bike! Light and no problem for everyday racing. Nice job!

Nice bike, did your team give you nokons and 0G brakes or are they your own upgrades.

Why do you have two different zipp rims?

Looks very much like a Trigon GRCC15 frame. Still some details are not quite similar, so it might come from another factory.

Very nice bike.

Look forward to your ride report.






Bike must be made in the far east.

CDN manufacturer Cycles Marinoni has a similar frame in its lineup...(with regards to the other Vellum frame the 'Edge')

Hi! I'm new to this forum. Vellum main office is in the Philippines. They have their frames made in China. The factory that makes Vellum frames also makes carbon frames for Pinarello and Isaac. Please click link below.

The frame is what we got from Vellum the rest of the build we could use what we want. The frames have been great so far and the ride qualkity is very nice. I rode a Fuji carbon last year and although it is a nice bike this is mucg better more responsice and quicker. The team riders had a choice between the gauge and the Edge. Most took the edge. THe 3rd modle is not yet avalable. The frame is light but not super light about 1136 g for the 58 cto top.

ome rodriguez is right the main office is in the Philippines we deal with Vellum USa out of Califonia.

shabbasuraj is right the Marinoni looks to be made in the same factory it looks identical to the Edge

zakeen 2 different zipp rims because of the same issue everyone else hase broke the rear in a race last fall just got it back. So when I had it rebuilt I went for the newer 303 in the pave version.

I like it because it's a bit different, 1100g for a 58cm frame is respectable(I know there's lighter). Do these guy's really make carbon frames for Pinarello and Isaac!!!!!!

Interesting........

From my understanding they make the front end for Pinarello and a few other top end manufactures. I have held an Edge up to a Pinarello and they are very simulare . It is different and I agree weight wise not bad. The ride quality is super. The hardes thing I have is not riding it everyday. I train on a different bike.

unfortunatly I do not know I only know what I was told by Vellum USA.

one of the changes I was going to make was to go with the Power cordz and the power cordz housing. I was told that without modifying the brake cables or the levers they would not work. Has anyone who has used the powerCordz with Campy record on the brake and shifters have any advice?

Hi Ome Rodriguez....

Can you kindly inform us of how to get in touch with Vellum Philippines?

I am a bit curious about the frame and if the price is right I may just recommend it to a biking buddy currently on the lookout for a carbon frame.

The weight is not bad....hence the interest.

To Darbydog, ...can you give more input concerning ridefeel and performance? Further, how much did you get your frame for? :)

concerning road feel the bike has good stiffness side to side but seems to have a vertical compliance if that makes sense. It is quick to accelerate due to the shorter wheelbase but is not harsh. It does not have that hollow thud that some carbon frames have. I don't know how much they run in overseas retail here is 2500 frame fork headset(gauge) THe edge is 2700 retail. the team got a killer deal on them for the Cat 1, 2 but it is a lease and we have to sell them at the end of the season. My non elites were able to purchase at a much lower cost then retail so in farness to the sponsor I don't want to say the price.

Unfortunately avalability in the states is limited right now the next shipment is due in April you can check with Frank at Vellum USA he may even refer you to me if you are on the east coast.
