Affinity Cycles is Back with New Branding
kissena_MG_1314-final

Introducing the New Affinity Cycles branding, website and frame colors. Brooklyn’s Affinity Cycles has been gearing up for a bit of a relaunch, in between their riders winning the Red Hook Crit women’s field, various alleycats and even competing in the 6 Days.

To start things off officially, Affinity announces three new frame colors and pre-orders: McQueen Green Kissena, Lollipop Purple Lo Pro and the Asphalt Metropolitan. All the frames now have hand painted graphics and their Kissena is featuring an all new carbon fork with aluminum steerer. Each can be pre-ordered as a frameset, or various build specs, ranging from $1,100 up to $4,400 for ENVE.

Check out Affinity’s new website as well, with a side-scrolling gallery of images, representing the brand’s ideology that a street bike can also be a race bike.

See more photos of the bikes below.

When Andy White of FYXO posted this the other day, it brought me back to when I first remember seeing it on Fyxomatosis. There’s nothing like a great DIY story with an even better final product.

Merckx Mondays
MerckxMondays-01

Jon Azkoitia has been a reader of the Radavist since the early blogspot days of PiNP and one of his favorite features is Merckx Mondays. When he began riding track bikes, it was due to his father’s love of track racing and Jon didn’t have just any introduction, he was given a Molteni-team Colnago track. For those who weren’t aware, the first few Molteni Eddy Merckx frames were made by De Rosa and Colnago before Eddy began making his own in Meise, a small town outside of Brussels.

Prior to Jon’s father, this bike was owned by Milano-SanRemo winner Michele Dancelli, who raced it for a number of years in the Molteni livery. The bike was then raced by Jon’s father for nearly 40 years! Needless to say, once Jon was handed down the frame, he felt it was time for a restoration, so Jon looked to the original heritage of the frame and did an amazing job.

Independent Fabrication: Hot Wheels Pursuit Track
SEMA14_03sm

Themed bikes are usually hit or miss, but I think Indy Fab nailed this one:

“Our Hot Wheels inspired pursuit track bike is currently on display at SEMA in the Toy Store-themed PPG Automotive Refinish booth. This steel frame was painted with a combination of 3 Crystallance paints from PPG’s Vibrance Collection along with a red tinted clear coat.”
