It’s not everyday that BAUM photographs one of their Corretto track bikes, so when I saw this, I had to share. Check out more of this GTR metallic black, venom green and Dura Ace track build at the BAUM Flickr.
Around the time of the Australian Custom Bike Show, Baum Cycles sent me photos of Darren’s own 650B Extensa MTB. Because it was going to be unveiled at the show, I wanted to wait a little while before posting it. I know a lot of you want to see more MTB content on the site and I can’t think of a better offering to the gods of dirt.
Built with SRAM’s XX1, this is a die hard MTBr’s dream machine and it’s already got me contemplating my own 650B MTB.

The Australian Custom Bicycle Show is this weekend in Australia and this bike is only one of the prime examples of Australian craftsmanship that will be on display. As part of the Rapha Continental Australia, Darren Baum worked closely with Rapha to design one of the wildest Baum Corretto paint jobs I’ve ever seen. Integrating the Rapha Gazzet Paper seamlessly into the wet coat creates a one-of-the-kind aesthetic.
The build? Pretty straight forward with full SRAM Red, ENVE clinchers, Fizik saddle and custom Busyman Bicycles bar tape to top it off. Check out more high-res photos of this beauty in the Gallery and if you’re in Australia, get your ass to the ACBS this weekend.
Everything about this photo made me think it was a rendering. The lighting is perfect, the paint is sharp and the colors are bright. Baum Cycles‘ newest Flickr upload is load and proud. See more here.
Speaking of Australia, this new avon black and ruby red Cubano is stunning! See more of Darren’s work here.
