Vessel V2 Frame
Broc Raiford Signature Frame
This being Brocs second signature frame, he already knew the process, what he liked, and what he wanted to add.
Some of the key features Broc really wanted to add were an oval downtube for more dent resistance, as well as a VLM logo on the top gusset. He wanted to keep all the V1 aspects including an hour glass head tube, keeping the wider BB shell for bigger tire clearance, 13.5 chain stay, and Volumes proven investment casted dropouts with built-in chain tensioners.
Brocs frame also features full 4130 CRMO Heat Treated tubing, removable seatstay brake mounts, and a double butted front triangle with dual gussets, a double diamond rear with S bend chainstays for larger geared sprocket clearance/ alignment and a 75º head tube.
