LowCXMKii

We’ve seen the Low CX bike evolve here at Radavist, so it should come as no surprise that this year’s CX offering is disc-equipped. The LOW CX Mkii is finally ready for pre-order, just in time for ‘cross season. It’s made in house at LOW in San Francisco from proprietary tubing, features internal routing, smooth welds and will clear a 40mm tire. Check out more at Low, read their PR below, pre-order a frame for $2,450 here and don’t miss the previous galleries over there on the left.

Gettin’ the Reynolds ATR Carbon Disc Wheels Dirty
Gettin' the Reynolds ATR Carbon Disc Wheels Dirty

Centerlock disc, XD driver compatible, thru axles, tubeless-ready, 29mm wide and 28mm deep.

Chas’ Doodled Cannondale Track
chas_cannon_08

Chas has a number of these Cannondale track bikes that have been thrashed on the street over the years, resulting in some pretty heft beausage. Since this one in particular has a few dents, he decided to turn it into a doodle bike and sell the frameset, along with this hand painted disc wheel. Both are for sale now at his webshop, so head over to see more details.
