I love photos from track racing in the 70’s. You’ve gotta head over to Bike Jerks to see more from the Shakopee Velodrome!

Andy is going over the top with this year’s Melburn Roobaix. He’s making a Fauxnago track bike, just like this one, as one of the prizes. I’ll see you all there and I hope you can make it. It’s gonna be a fun weekend in Melbourne.
These things are always in high demand and it’s only by some miracle that they’re not gone yet. AARN has a select few silver 144#47/49 chainrings in stock over at his web shop. Swoop em up now for $88 a piece.
A while back, I posted about Ian Sutton of Icarus Frames trying to sell this prototype track machine here in Austin. Turns out, my buddy – and part time intern – Andre picked it up. Rather than go with a classy, wet coat, he got it painted dark black with a clear sparkle top coat. Something that neither Ian nor myself saw coming…
I’ll admit, both of us were apprehensive, but when I saw the bike in person, I knew exactly what Andre was going for and Circle A killed it!
Andre built the bike up with all Zipp components: seatpost, bars, bartape and stem. For wheels, he went PAUL track hubs to H+Son Archetypes and SRAM Omnium cranks. It’s a standard, classy build on a very unique frameset. Since he works at Mellow Johnny’s he had the mechanics dial everything in.
The Cervelo fork and its tight clearances are right at home with this frame, that barely squeezes in a 23c tire. It’s a mean steed with a bit of sassy sparkles.
Ride safe Andre!
When I first saw the title of this, I thought they were riding their Leader frames from SF to San Diego on track bikes. They’re not, but it’s still a great video.
… just another day in LA! Check out more on this collaboration at Brotures.
The guys at Kinoko have been working hard on a newsprint journal showcasing the brands, hands and bicycles that make Kinoko tick. Check out issue 01 above. Don’t miss that DSC x Saffron article!
Perhaps you’ve heard of the Koochella track team? Well, All-City’s engineer Anna Schwinn spoke about them a little while ago on the AC Blog. Turns out, this Thursday (tomorrow) is the team debut at the NSC Velodrome.
Check out that kit and bike!
