Brooklyn Machine Works CX Bike Dec 18, 2009

Austin has been known to race CX on his Gansta Track. I remember hearing some hush hush stories about a BMW Cyclo cross bike last year. With more and more people racing ‘Cross on their BMWs, Brooklyn has finally began to work on a CX frame. This one is Austin Horse’s and no word on whether it will be a standard-release Brooklyn frame. My guess is that it’s a one-off for now. Regardless, it’s got some interesting details.

    Eccentric bottom bracket…interesting.

  • or he is planning on running a BMX or BB30 style crankset. I’m curious what the other ‘interesting’ details are…

  • You can pretty much see the other details. Interesting for BMW. The drop-out flange, the tapered chainstay and the TT stops at the ST; not typical of the BMW “road” bikes.

    It’s a BB30 with a Columbus Life tubeset. It’s a one-off for Austin at the moment but could very well morph into a production bike for next season if there’s enough demand.

  • rad! thanks ken.
