Donhou track goodness.

May 4, 2011

Tim commutes on an old geared 90′s mountain bike nicknamed the “Monster Truck” and he came to me wanting something special as a second bike. He wanted a track frame for the road and something thats light, fast and a lot of fun, something thats a real contrast to his everyday ride, in his words “I want this one to be like a Ferrari in my shed”.

It’s got a sweet bar/stem combo, dropped seat stays, track ends with built in adjusters and I love the paint, every time I look at it reminds me of a Pantone swatch book. The frame is now waiting in the ‘shop for a full build…

Looking good, Tim. Shouts out to Tom Donhou on this one… It’s great to see new builders prosper.

I can’t get enough of this bike. Everything has been considered in terms of making it as light as possible, look at it! It’s pretty darn ugly with it’s imperfections but in ways also quite beautiful.

I read that the aero bars attached to the front of this machine are completely custom and they took Obree himself three months to whittle down from a solid piece of aluminium. Now that’s what I am talking about. Simply brilliant.

Thanks Hardysan for the linkage.

Who needs seatstays when you have chain stays like these? Seriously, I have never seen a hencher set of legs.

Damn, I’d love to see that orange pursuit bike in it’s entirety… The toptube looks pretty crazy, as does the aero webbing at the seat cluster.

Go check out Keith Anderson’s Flickrspot. There is a lot of focus on custom paintjobs but have a sift and you might find some buried bike treasure.

What some hipsters would do to get there latté holding hands on this monster!

Feather Hotness.

Ricky from Feather cycles is killing it. I thought his initial offerings were good but these are serious, Feather’s gone from strength to strength!

Just peep his latest offerings, I think you’ll agree that he’s doing an utterly fantastic job and that green Rando is straight off the hook ( street slang for really good ).

I certainly know where I’ll be going for my custom roady! You do me nice price?

If she truly loved me she would buy me this.
