Oh man. I love me some Columbus MAX. I’ve got a track bike made from it and even my road bike’s seat tube is MAX. At this point, I’ve seen just about every resolution for the MAX top tube. This bi-oval beast is either capped in an awkward lug, or the seat stays wrap around it but I’ve never, ever seen a detail like that. Why hide something when you can express it?
That’s not the only detail expressed here. You’ve gotta check out more at the Elkabikes’ blog. The brake bridge, track ends and seat tube cluster are WILD.
Oh, and these guys are from Moscow!
