Cycling Components tell us that Vivelo started as a quest in 2007 when Damyan Nikolov wanted to provide a local professional cycling team with a special edition road bik. He had a desire to build quite simply, the best racing bikes in the world. Drawing upon seven years experience as a competitive cyclist and then a further nine years as a sponsor of different cycling teams (along with five employees each with a strong engineering and cycling background) the foundations were slowly being laid towards the onset of Vivelo.

After months of hard work and another four employees, initial testing of a prototype was so successful, that come 2009 Vivelo was established and was supplying Continental Professional cycling teams and Vivelo now supply bikes to four such teams.

More recently, in the 2012 Vuelta a Espana, Caja Rural of Spain were often seen in the breaks riding their special edition Vivelo Arc RS bikes. The pinnacle of which, was a well earned win on stage 15 for Antonio Piedra, and providing Vivelo with some creditable and well deserved recognition.

Road Range
Given the race pedigree and sheer quality of the frames; they are extremely well priced says Cycling Components. The focus is to provide an all-out racing bike and so each frame is constructed to provide maximum power transfer and yet retain a good level of comfort without being overly harsh.

The range topping Vivelo Arc RS frameset (includes frame/fork, Carbon Aero Seatpost and FSA Headset) is priced at £1,595.00 and is available in a range of standard colour schemes. Customers have the option for either a Gloss or Matte finish. The Erg ISP will retail for £1,445.00 and the Erg RS will retail for £1,245.00. Again, the Erg frames are available in a wide choice of colour schemes with Gloss finish.

Vivelo are also working on some new framesets, and details for these will forthcoming in due course.

Cycling Components have also just revised their pricing for 2013 and Vivelo now offer even better value than ever before.

Vivelo Personalised Frameset System
Vivelo offer a truly fantastic Personalised Frameset System whereby customers can select there own colour scheme and even have their own name applied to the frame for that ‘Pro’ touch. By visiting the Vivelo Personalised Frameset System, customers can select various options and then save/download and forward to Cycling Components. This is a great feature, and is free to use with no extra cost for customers to select their own colour scheme. Also perfect for cycle team and club riders. Gone are the days if you want ‘A’ particular bike, then you HAVE to HAVE ‘A’ particular colour.

Vivelo Framesets and complete custom bike build examples are listed on our website. All custom bike builds are to customer specification, and so any changes may be made to the examples shown, or we are happy to discuss a complete build from the frame onwards. We are currently working on our 2013 custom bike build range, and these will be on our website very soon.
