Alphalab: SATANTRAX UP HILL DOWN HELL.

Posted by: kris

Cool promo flick for Alphalab‘s newest frame offering the Satantrax. A solid look at the frame and some cruising around Indonesia. Bike looks dialed and there’s a hell of a sketchy decent in this. Narrow two wayroad sans bike lane, plenty of traffic and enough people coming at you head on to keep your eyes open. Dig it.

Factory Five: F550s.

Posted by: kris

Factory Five has been dropping some of the cleanest track frames lately. The newest special edition F550s is as limited as it is purdy. Based of the regular F550 but with some tweaks in tubing and a carbon fork to lighten the load. The smooth welds on this version are real nice too. Specs after the click and more info here!

 

 

 

 

“The F550-S represents our never-rest attitude. We’ve been working on this one-off frameset for a while and are excited to present a very limited run of something special.

The base is the same geometry as our all-round-powerhouse F550. It is light, sturdy, nimble and awesome.

We’ve refined it. Instead of an oversize down tube we’ve kept it to 1+1/8th inch throughout. It lend super-clean lines and reduce weight slightly. Weight reducing and game changing too is the addition of a carbon fork up front.

The Seatpost diameter is 27.2mm, standard 68mm bottom bracket shell and a 1+1/8th inch headset. Sizing is from the center of the BB axel to the top of the seat post – which extends slightly above the top-tube.

Instead of the industrial TIG weld we’ve applied a smoothweld at all the joints. It’s the same application as on our F5100, turning each corner of the frame into a beautiful transition between the tubes.

Then, dress it in our 2014 team graphics and race logos. The F550-S. A pedigree.

Included in the frameset is an F5 Carbon fork. It has a 35mm rake, aluminium 1+1/8th inch steerer and weighs barely a few hundred grams.

We also offer a complete performance F55S build. Here’s the specification
* 20/24h H+Son Archetype Rims
* Low flange Gran Compe Hubs with bladed spokes
* Fyxation session tyres
* Thomson Elite Seatpost
* Thomson X2 Ahead Stem
* Deda RHM-02 Road bars
* F5 Lattice Chainring
* Izumi Chain
* Fyxation Pilot Saddle”

The Heavy Pedal: Zephyr.

Posted by: kris

After working on this bad boy for a year The Heavy Pedal is now ready to release their first frame offering the Zephyr. Some wild colors and a 1″ head tube a la Cannondale Track make this thing look pretty sweet.  Check the press release below and hit their store to preorder!

 

 

“We decided that we wanted to make a bike within the last year. At a time when everyone seems to be rushing to make the cheapest bike out of the cheapest materials for the wrong reasons— we decided to take a step back and do some research. What we gathered was our deep appreciation for NJS bikes, the Cannondale Track and also bike designers that were driven to stand out, like Landshark (none of which have any affiliation to us). So, when we decided that The Heavy Pedal would make a bike we took all three, great ideas into account. We introduce to you, Zephyr. ”

Price Point: $649.99
Available in Two Different Colors, Comes With Frame and Fork

Tubeset: Double Butted 6061 Aluminum
