Bikes and Beer. What is there not to like? Right?

 

 

What started out as a casual conversation with Timo Cooper quickly evolved into Momsen Bikes being commissioned to create a full custom version of their latest full suspension bike – the VIPA ULTRA.

The VIPA ULTRA’s flat and large surfaces were ideal for applying the Devil’s Peak Lager livery

 

With it’s unique and distinctive design, the ULTRA’s large and angular tube shapes really lend themselves to the decal application of the crisp and bold colours of Devil’s Peak Premium Lager.

When we received the artwork from the Devil’s Peak team I immediately pictured how we could incorporate the label detailing onto the frame’s tubing. The frame has so many large flat surfaces which literally beg to be styled with classy details.

Pre-Orders will be opening soon from Authorised Stockists or the dedicated VIPA ULTRA website and each lucky owner will receive a set of Devil’s Peak Cycling Kit (designed and manufactured by Ciovita) as well as 10 cases of Devil’s Peak Lager (over the space of 12 months).

 

Depending on demand we could end up offering the DP Frame-Kits as a Complete Bike Build. (Watch this space)

Looks very smart! Judging by all the free stuff you get when you buy, think its going to be pricey. However, not a bit fan of that baggy thing on the toptube.

Are the decals really just stuck on the side with no clear coat over them?  Please tell me my eyeballs are deceiving me.

So excited too see it’s another YAWN bike from Momsen.

HI 

 

Decals are not just stuck on, the frames are manufactured in the factory like any other. We wanted the Devils Peak branding to really stand out from the black. 

 

I hope you like it! 

 

Maybe see you at Epic for a DP lager or two.

Gloss Water Transfer with Factory ClearCoat - your eyeballs are deceiving you.

 

Rest of the frame has a Matte Clear Coat on it.

Coops, what is your verdict on the Farr saddle, would really like to hear an independent actual user comment, much appreciated if you can say.
