bike looks pretty sweet, where you get the frame? Hows it ride? Is there a brake surface on those rims?

I got the frame off Ebay. It looks like a Visp, but it’s actually not. It's sold by the Ebay seller "cyclingdealusa". He told me the brand was "cyclingdealusa". It's a one hundred and thirty dollar frame and rides accordingly. It’s very stiff and harsh on rough cement, but I'm hoping a carbon seat post will take care of that. It's got pretty relaxed geo, so if your looking for something with a short trail, this isn't it. Overall I'm happy with it. The brake bridge keeps the rear wheel from being slammed, the welds are ugly and the seat tube has to be super tight or the post slips. I filed the bridge yesterday and now I can slam the wheel. It's not outrageously heavy, which was a surprise was. I was happy that I got a frame that wasn't botched up because I don't think there's much quality control with these generic frames. The rims don't have a braking surface, but that’s okay because my brake is there as more of an emergency brake.

Had issues with cheap frames

Had issues with cheap frames with the seatpost. You dont want it super tight or youll pull the threads right out. Just put a soda can shim and it will fix the problem

I took the seatpost out and

I took the seatpost out and worked the clamps a bit until I was able to get them closer without to much stress on the bolt. It now appears to require less torque to get the clamp to hold the post. I tried some shims out of cans, but I wasn't even able to fit them in. There is no play when the post is in and isn't tightened, and it fells like it isn't moving when its tightned, but a firm hit will put the seat down and out of line unless the clamp is very tight. I used a very short allen key so I wouldn't be able to get much leverage and hopefully therefore reduce the risk of me being an idiot and over doing it.
