As they say, all good things must come to an end at some point. After five years and five different versions of Hoang Tran‘s signature Villicus frame from Subrosa, the final version is being released as we type this. The Villicus Infinity, which marks the 5th version of this series that has seen the Villicus, Villicus II, Villicus Prime and Villicus Prime II previously, will be the last in the series. Not to say that Hoang will no longer be apart of the Subrosa team, because he definitely will and will probably end up with a different signature frame at some point. They’re just retiring the long standing Villicus frame. So, with that being said, we figured there’s no better time than now to give you a close up look at the Villicus Infinity. Ready? Let’s do this!
The Villicus Infinity is a full 4130 chromoly frame with a 75-degree head tube angle, 69-degree seat tube angle, 11.6″ bottom bracket height, 8.75″ stand over height and a 13.5″ chainstay length (13.25″ slammed). You can find features like a Death Proof heat-treated 125mm tall head tube, double butted top tube, double butted down tube, a down tube gusset with the Subrosa logo, a Subrosa Shield on the seat tube, integrated seat post clamp, custom Investment cast seat stay bridge with Subrosa logos, Investment Cast wishbone on the chainstay, chain and seat stays that flatten at the dropouts for hub guard clearance, Death Proof heat-treated, laser cut 6mm thick dropouts with integrated chain tensioners and removable brake mounts.
The Villicus Infinity frame comes in top tube lengths of 20.5″, 20.75″ and 21″ with Cosmic Red and Matte black for colors and a weight of 4.8 lbs. (20.5″).
