Merckx Mondays
_DSC2711

M-m-m-molteni Monday! While Tracko’s got a sweet Merckx Mondays post up, I’m adding to the bike coveting with this sick Molteni Pista up on eBay. If I had the money and if this thing was a little bit bigger, I’d swoop it up for sure. Some background, this is being sold by a reader, who’s a photographer in need of some new glass. I’ve been there before and it’s a tough sacrifice to make.

See the rest of Anthony’s Eddy Merckx Pista in high res here or try your luck, bidding on it at eBay!

FYXO: Billy Joe’s Euro Track

Photo by Andy White

I love Euro track bikes and FYXO’s photography, but most importantly, I appreciate his anecdotal approach to giving a background to his photoshoot. Check out more from this raconteur at FYXO!

Another Bike on its Side
DALE-1

I’m still going through all the madness from Los Angeles. This one in particular came as a last minute surprise. Luka’s Cannondale track. Pristine condition. He even has the original wheels at home. As always, more on this to come!

Icarus Fade Chevron Singlespeed Frame
Icarus_SS_Fade-COVER-1

It’s kind of nice living two miles from Icarus Frames‘ shop in South Austin. When Ian gets in a frame from paint, I can just cruise on over and shoot a few photos. When he gets a frame in like this singlespeed road however, I spend a little more time documenting it.

This is a custom bicycle. It’s a NAHBS-worthy bike, although Ian has never shown at NAHBS. The detailing is above and beyond your average frame. Everything is shaped, carved and sculpted to perfection. Stainless rear, stainless lugs, internal routing, polished everything, immaculate shorelines, covered by a wild wet paint job, courtesy of Fresh Frame.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen something so dialed come out of Ian’s shop and to think, his queue has a quick turnaround. I just wish I could have photographed the complete bike!

Check out more insane details in the Gallery.
