The draw: Build your own specs
For those who already have a preferred groupset or are looking to save money by only upgrading their frame, the Ceepo Venom is a great choice. The Venom is third in line in the Ceepo lineup, and while it may not be as aerodynamic as its siblings, it was designed to be more compliant and user friendly. Oftentimes with compliance comes sloppy handling and poor acceleration, but the Ceepo made sure to beef up the chainstays and optimize the design in order to combat this. Coming in at 1350 grams (size medium) for the frameset, it’s also very light.
