When we told pro rider Olly Wilkins about our single pivot bike VICE, he got quite curious about it. He gave it a try on his home trails at the really recognizable Swindon (Yes, exactly that Swindon). And Rupert Fowler documented it on video. The result: A video as pure and raw as the VICE itself. Dedicated to the ones who love the sound and ease of pure riding.
The VICE summarises everything I like about single pivot bikes. Ultimate simplicity. No flex, no nonsense, honest fun.
I can go out riding in the worst weather that London has to offer, leave that thing in the shed and it'll be good to go the next day. That's what I love about single pivots!
“Angle wise it felt spot on. It's fun to throw around and real stiff.”
Olly’s build: I have my VICE bike built up with DMR components as well as Sram Eagle drive. The suspension is taken care of with an X-Fusion McQueen up front and a O2 Pro RCX shock with a really progressive tune. I actually have 140mm of travel on the front of my VICE to eat some bigger hits. I paired all of the above with my Reynolds Enduro wheels and some Schwalbe Magic Mary's. It's the ultimate Loam bike!
“I couldn't believe the price on the complete build. The perfect option for someone getting into the sport.”
