Faz was in Brisbane, Australia for nearly a month visiting family and friends. While there, he put together a video showcasing some of the rad rides he took part of!

The Australian Custom Bicycle Show is this weekend in Australia and this bike is only one of the prime examples of Australian craftsmanship that will be on display. As part of the Rapha Continental Australia, Darren Baum worked closely with Rapha to design one of the wildest Baum Corretto paint jobs I’ve ever seen. Integrating the Rapha Gazzet Paper seamlessly into the wet coat creates a one-of-the-kind aesthetic.
The build? Pretty straight forward with full SRAM Red, ENVE clinchers, Fizik saddle and custom Busyman Bicycles bar tape to top it off. Check out more high-res photos of this beauty in the Gallery and if you’re in Australia, get your ass to the ACBS this weekend.
I’m really proud of everything Andy is doing in Melbourne, including this event:
FYXO is proud to host the first Australian Custom Bicycle Show this 1 & 2 December in Melbourne, Australia.
The ACBS is an opportunity to see a flourishing range of high quality hand constructed frame offerings that are ‘Made in Australia’ and cater to the desires of passionate cyclists.
We aim to promote and foster a part of the bicycle industry we have long been passionate about. Made by Hand / Made in Australia.
From Frame builders and painters to hand crafted cycling accesories, come meet established and emerging exhibitors, their custom products and fall head over pedals in lust with their offerings.
Speaking of Australia, this new avon black and ruby red Cubano is stunning! See more of Darren’s work here.

I love the random emails from all over the globe I get with “Merckx” in the subject lines. For today’s Merckx Mondays, two Stuttgart bikes make an appearance, from across the globe. Starting the Christian Wieners’ photo of this Stuttgart road, taken during the Giro de Brilliante 01, which I’m assuming is an event in Austria. You can see more photos from the event here and see more Merckx Mondays below.
I really wish I could have visited KUMO Cycles when I was in Australia. Especially after seeing this Chassichrome track frame. I can identify with large frames and this 60cm Columbus Life beauty was made with Llewellyn lugs, sports a hand carved Kumo BB shell cutout and keeps it classy with a chrome fork and rear triangle. Check out more details at KUMO. Thanks for sharing Harry!
Some of my favorite riding photos came out of my stay in Australia last winter. While I doubt any ride I go on in the near future will compare to the two days into hell that Fyxo and Shifter Dan took me on, I had a blast riding from Sydney to Wollongong with Adam of CycleEXIF. What I thought would be an hour long ride, ended up being a 60 mile ride through rainforests and coastal roads, leading us to the workshop of Primate Frames.
I was on my MKE Orange One, in city clothes, toting a camera bag and Adam was on his singlespeed. Neither were ideal vehicles for this hot, Australian summer sun-filled afternoon but we managed to have a blast. For more dialog, see my old A Day in 10 Photos entry and for more photos, check out the slideshow…
