Vertigo


Vertigo is a steel, handbuilt, filletbrazed full suspension with a bespoke geometry, size and travel. 
By using the seat tube as a backbone the frame can be built to measure. 29er or 650B, XC/Trail geometry or full on long and slack? Apart from the seat tube angle (between 75 and 77 degrees, depending on size) everything is possible .Stack and reach, chainstay length, headtube angle and BB drop. Vertigo can be built around different sizes shocks, with travel ranging from 95mm to 153mm.
The photos here show the two pre-production bikes. The final bike is pretty much the same awesome package but has some refined details, improved suspension kinematics, an even more beautiful rocker and space for bigger tyres and chainrings. See the drawing for all the possibilities Vertigo has to offer.

Vertigo can be ordered like any other project12 bike; send me a message with your dreams and ideas and we’ll discuss until we get the best bike for you.

Pricing for a full custom frame in any RAL color (but without shock) starts at € 2.350,- .
The first 5 2 frames will be sold for only € 1.990,-

Options like internal cables, custom paintjobs, candy powdercoat are of course possible at a surcharge.

Every frame is unique and will be tailored to your wishes. Want your initials cut out in the dropout, or a tapered integrated headtube? No problem!

There will be 2 rockers for Vertigo. A ST version (in the photo) for more XC oriented bikes and shorter travel, and an LT version for Trail and All Mountain bikes. 

Old school handwork and fillet brazing combined with water-cut 4130 steel, turned stainless and aluminium hardware for the pivots and a gorgeous CNCed rocker in 6082 aluminum.

Bespoke project12 dropouts, with the brake transferring it’s load directly onto the chainstays. IS mounts might seem old fashioned, but without the risk of damaging postmount threads they are still king for me. (and yes, those are speedfins 😉 )
