As I was backing up my photos from Interbike, I realized I never posted these. It’s a few photos I shot of Jason Clary’s new LOW track bike. He’s had the frame for a while but it’s good to see it built up. I’ve always liked the crazy custom paint and finishing schemes Andrew comes up with and this bike is no different.

This time, last year, I was anxiously awaiting my departure to Portland for my Summer tour and over the past few weeks, I’ve been itching to get back on the road. Maybe that’s why I’ve been scouring Flickr for interesting touring photos. Which led me to a reader’s trip from earlier this summer. Ramon Jacquez rode his LOW pursuit (low pro) on the “Golden Tour“. Backpack touring is about as minimal as you can get and his photos show this was no easy task.
I highly suggest you check out the set. It’s quite nice!
I’ve already showed you the rough version of this new detail during my last Shop Visit to Low. For an extra $50, Andrew is now offering stainless facing on his track ends. This looks so good and I know a lot of people were asking why he didn’t offer this. Head to Low for more information on pricing.
When I met up with Josh to shoot photos of his LOW track bike, he had one last run to make on his shift. When he pulled up the USPS box on his pursuit bars, I had to get a few shots of him. Great bike and a great dude.
After the 2011 NACCCs, Josh relocated to Austin from SF, where he worked at TCB Courier. Once settling in here in town, he took Andrew Low up on his offer for a track frame. Andrew went to town on this one with the finishing. This was the first frame that Andrew etched the owner’s name into the top tube. Other finishing notes include the TCB Courier logo etched in and Andrew’s signature on the non-drive chainstay.
Josh wanted this bike to ride fast and secure, so he went with some SRAM Omniums and a bullhorn on his cockpit. What better way to top off the build than with a Pentabike Muststash?

At this point, I’ve lost count of how many LOW‘s I’ve photographed. But at least this one is on entirely different turf. Josh’s LOW is the first one in Texas. Fancy that! More to come…
Andrew showed me these photos when I was visiting him in SF and LOOP Magazine now has this collaboration up for lottery sale. Not that you guys want to drop that kind of coin on a collaboration but it’s still a nice looking frame. While we’re on the subject of Loop, Dan Chabs made the cover!
