The guys at Heavy Pedal have creates something so strange and so weird that it just works! Introducing their Zephyr track frameset:

“We decided that we wanted to make a bike within the last year. At a time when everyone seems to be rushing to make the cheapest bike out of the cheapest materials for the wrong reasons— we decided to take a step back and do some research. What we gathered was our deep appreciation for NJS bikes, the Cannondale Track and also bike designers that were driven to stand out, like Landshark (none of which have any affiliation to us). So, when we decided that The Heavy Pedal would make a bike we took all three, great ideas into account. We introduce to you, Zephyr.”

    Fork: 1″ Threaded – Lugged Steel – Crown Fork?
    why because of the 80’s paintjob?

    • Jaap

      1″ is narrower, as a result, more aerodynamic

        No, it’s because they wanted it to be an exact replica of the Cannondale track. It has nothing to do with aerodynamics. That’s just silly.

      i don’t know about aearodynamics. Probably because of NJS.

  • Parker

    Super cool.
    I kinda wish it wasn’t a threaded fork, but still a cool homage to its inspiration I guess.

  • Jake Ricker

    Dig it!
    Very proud of my AZ homies!

  • kermitonwheels

    That’s cheap (price).

    looks like the seat tubes were reamed out with an old razor blade!
