I’ve been rocking an aarn ring for some time now and couldn’t be happier with it. That being said this new black and white camo colorway might just be worth a swapping out. If you’re going for that real “camo” look the colors on these are proper and the craftsmanship is top notch at usual. Swoop one before those quantities start dropping!
For the last run of these rad chainrings John and AARN went with something a little more wild and equally as awesome. The 144 ring now with a hint of ‘Merica to rep on your ride. Splash looks too killer. Swoop here!
Factory 5 posted up a sneak peek of their new chainring this morning. Dig the lines on that dual-place lattice on the outer. Not quite ready for release yet but will be 144bcd, full CNC and available in black or raw. Sounds good to me. More on the Factory 5 facebook.
So this is the bike i bought after getting my tax return instead of picking up a new camera. Looking at how quality these shots are from my phone I’m wondering if that was the right move…a certain someone was pretty convincing though haha. This thing sat at Pedal Hard for months with my name on it waiting for me to pick it up. While it waited I acquired some mice parts to test out have finally been able to give them a go for a bit. I’ll be writing a full “Testing Testing.” reviews on them this week but hopefully with some more detailed shots than what i have below. The Toro leather bar tape, Sofus Francisco straps, Yobi track ring and Selle Royal seat have all peformed great to say the least. I’ve logged at least a couple hundred miles in the past month both on long rides and crusing the streets. I’m loving this bike…but miss having a camera haha.
