Decided to take a trip & visit Versus Cycles today to check out the new bikes. The place is awsome, you walk in the door & Whamm the Goddess of Versus right there, Wow i was in heaven then i heard a voice from behind the walls & came to, oh hay there Herb, dang reality checks! Herb spends most of his time in front of his best friend the CNC machine, i think it's love with the green juice, his 2nd friend is the top secret box that i belive has a computer in it. :yesnod: Up high on one wall are the proto type frames that did ther job well & are now resting after a very hard beating. Then Herb pulled out the cream of the day, besides the Goddess, the internal transmission Versus frame whoohoohubahuba what a beauty & she is still in development, good thing there is a mop near by. Another beauty they have is a Blitz II that weights i belive 34lbs, dang it's almost a XC bike at that weight.
:cornut::cornut:

Edit: Was just informed the weight of the built Blitz II is actually 32 pounds.

More pics of the Goddess :crazy:

I see how he made it 50/50 now... now cassete in the back and stuff...everything in the box... next time you go over there, can get pics of the insides? Would love to see how it ticks... XD

Why use a chain though if it's running a gear box? Why not a driveshaft? Weight factor?

It really is looking like the future, clean centralized weight & smooth as buttah.

Looking forward to the finished Nico, you do some sweet builds! Are you going to start a new thread for the compleat bike with a ride report :confused:

There are many nice places to go visit & ride my head spins, more than normal, thinking of where i would like to go. Have a great time & post pic's. :cornut:

Ther's a whole lota machining going on there then more R & D. The rockers have been a topic since the introduction of the Blitz II, some of us like them some think they are plain. They are different from the normal holes that are used on most linkage plates. :cool:
