Andy’s Euro Track with Campagnolo Pista

I first met this bike back when FYXO was Fyxomatosis, in Japan and if I recall correctly, it had a little more white and a little more red paint covering its tight angles. There is no shame in a respray – although I did like the original paint – especially when you’re looking to give your favorite bike a facelift. Or in this case, make it a minimal race machine.

Last weekend, as I was hanging around Maison de Blanc, I asked Andy if I could shoot his Euro track bike. Maybe it was the bright white tape, or the supple and soft white Rolls saddle (which, by the way is pain to photograph without a polarizing filter), but it was just begging for some clever placement photos against his father’s tractor.

Modern, mixed with vintage Campagnolo, a FYXO track ring, impeccable paint and classic wheels… what else would you expect? Check out more in the Gallery!

    Awesome shot of the rear clearance. Tight bike. Pun intended.

    I was going to point out that crazy clearance on the rear wheel but Patrick beat me to it. Good eye. Really like the minimalism going on here.

    did you use the 135mm f2 for the rear cog / hub (from above) shot?

      Cycle EXIF should be able to tell EXIF by lookin at the photo! ;-)

          I mean, it’s not “Cycle What’s the EXIF?” is it? ;-)

          • http://www.cycleexif.com/ Adam Leddin

            It is, if I can’t tell what the EXIF is just by looking at a photo and I’m interested in finding out what makes a good photo!

            EXIF doesn’t make a good photo! (seriously)
