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.

Melbourne is a rad city and this video just scratches the surface. Here’s what riding fixed gears in Melbourne means to a group of ladies.
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.”

No 22 Bicycles’ made in the USA frames are one by one, getting a bit of a make-over, beginning with the popular Little Wing track frame. While the geometry has stayed the same, the Little Wing has some new accoutrement, in the form of new cast-titanium pieces.
See more detailed photos below, along with a break-down of this frame, supplied by No 22.
Well, he’s not selling it himself and it’s not your everyday bike. This one’s dripping with Campagnolo Pista. The price is $1,100 complete, as shown on Tracko’s Flickr. Head over to Tracko to see more details.
This is just a trailer, but it’s looking pretty good!
“7 riders, a year-long season, 10+ races, 2 wheels, 1 gear ratio, 1 passion, tons of friends, fun, laughts, beers toasted and hours training and chasing the dream all around the world!

Rounding out the three commemorative frames from this year’s Red Hook Crit series is this RHC Milano Vigorelli frameset. The finish and design of this one is completely over-the-top. I love all the attention to detail. Made in a short run of 20 frames and available exclusively at Cinelli.
I think this year set a record for Red Hook Crit videos!
