Purchase the O2 VAM frameset in either rim brake for the ultimate in weight savings or disc break for the fully integrated look. Factor’s premium frameset specification includes the beautifully integrated barstem from Black Inc, lightweight carbon seat post in with zero offset or 25mm and CeramicSpeed’s silky smooth bearings in the bottom bracket and headset. Unlike most others, Factor design their products to work in harmony in performance and aesthetics. With the frameset package you can retain the intended design of the O2 VAM and fit your own choice of wheelset and groupset for your build.

  • Svelte Fork: Extensive R&D went into achieving the perfect blend of lightness, precision, control and comfort
  • Bottom bracket: The down tube and chain stays meet around the BB to create very high pedalling stiffness
  • Wide stance seat stays: Boost rear triangle stiffness while remaining very thin for a compliant ride
  • Lightweight seatpost clamp: Incredibly light with a large clamping area for a secure hold and compatibility with the lightest seatposts
  • Internal cabling: Innovative D-shaped steerer and custom compression plug avoid the need for an oversized headset, thereby maintaining the frame’s low-profile headtube, stiffness goals and tyre clearance

  • Factor O2 VAM Frame & Svelte Fork
  • Black Inc Seatpost (Choice of zero or 25mm setback)
  • Black Inc Integrated Barstem (Your choice of size)
  • CeramicSpeed BB & Headset
  • ‘Pizza Box’ with a range of accessories, including: Bartape, compression plug, chainstay protector, garmin computer mount, rear derailleur hanger, seatpost wedge and saddle clamps.
  • You will also get a set of grommets, spacers, cable stops  and covers to complete your build.
