Von Hof Road (Columbus HSS) - 56

Howdy y'all

I recently (like, 3 weeks ago) built up this VH. For those of you unfamiliar, they're a small brand out of Hoboken, NJ. The frames are a light, stiff combination of HSS tubes assembled by Vicious Cycles in NY. If you're unfamiliar with HSS, it's the raciest steel you can get. Springy, responsive, light and still that unparalleled ride quality that we know and love. The tubes are all shaped and almost none of them are round. They are ovalized/hexagonal - very cool.

Anyways, on to the bike. I built it up a few weeks ago, but the head tube is a bit too tall for my riding so I'm passing it along. Here are the specs.

Frame: VonHof Road HSS size 56
Fork: Columbus Grammy (one of the lightest on the market)
Headset: Cane Creek Forty with low stack
Seatpost: Enve blacked out, 2 bolt design
Saddle: Fabric Scoop Radius (Swoopy) Pro Carbon Süper Bling
Stem: 120, 130 or 140 available from ITM, Ritchey, Zipp
Handlebars: Thomson "aero" aluminum. They aren't really aero.
Groupset: Microshift Arsis 11. Good marriage between Ultegra level and Campy thumb shifters that I love.
Crankset: Quarq Saturn
Pedals: Shimano, if you need them. Otherwise, not included.
Wheels: Shimano 105 hubs mated to some box rims.

I rode the bike less than 10 times. Most recently, I took it to Israel where I rode as hard as I could and did pretty well on a 17.5km strava segment with 500m elevation. It's great for touring. Great for riding hard. Just a great all-around bike.

It's currently packed in an orucase. For $2,000 I'll send it with the case. This case flies for free as it fits under the 62" oversized baggage fee.

If you don't want the case, I'll send it to you for $1,777 in a normal cardboard box.

I'll cover any fees, you cover the shipping.

That’s beautiful. How tall is that head tube?

And, what is the design on the top tube and inside of the fork blades?

Here's the geo (oddly, they don't include the headtube measurement, but I can grab it later):


The top tube/chainstay is a "V" (for Von Hof, Vendetta, Victory...or maybe your name is Victor?).
Inside the fork blades is COLUMBUS under the clearcoat.

Thanks, I did see the chart at the link you provided but it doesn’t indicate head tube length unless I’m missing it and I very well could be since I couldn’t figure out that “bus” was half of Columbus.

So, best I can tell, the top tube says “live.”

Interesting thought, but there are two vertical lines in between the V and the E. So maybe but maybe not. I think it's more of an artistic design as they hired a designer firm a couple of years ago to make their new logo and website.

I'll try to measure the headtube for you tonight.

Headtube seems to be right around 17.5cm for those who are wondering.

I would be interested in the orucase if the buyer isn't interested.

This is a pretty excellent deal for a bike with a PM, nice components and a $500 bike bag. Its like you are pretty much getting the excellent frame for free.

Great Father's Day shot above.

Your daughter seems to be saying 'Dad, please don't sell that one!'
