Nick’s Moyer Track
Nick's Moyer Track

Back in the early 2000′s, here in Austin, a guy named Whitney Moyer headed to a mecca of hopeful framebuilders in the US, UBI. Upon returning with all the experience needed to build frames, he was looking to commission a local project. This was that frame. Moyer’s first…

Whitney reached out to Nick, a bike messenger in town at the time, to build a straight forward, classic track frame from True Temper OX platinum. Nick had a group for the frame. Made of mismatched components that he fell in love with over the years.

Nitto NJS steel cockpit, Suntour seatpost, Turbo saddle, Dura Ace cranks, Chris King Sotto Voce headset, Dura Ace hubs to Mavic Open Pro Ceramic and of course, Campy Super Record pedals with double straps.

This bike, although made in 2004, looks straight out of the 80′s. In the ten years Nick has owned his Moyer, it’s been raced on the track as well as the street, worked on for years and still to this day, Nick finds the time to pull it down from the wall and take it for a spin. It’s war torn, tattered but is still straight as an arrow.

If there were a track bike to represent Austin, this would be it.
