Everyone loves the Kagero and now the Renovatio takes a step in a new direction:
“Leader Bikes is pleased to announce it’s newest collaboration with Pedal Consumption: The Renovatio. Luke Binder, California’s 2010 Elite State Roadrace Champion, has quietly been testing the frameset both on and off the track to ensure it’s high quality construction and compact geometry meets the high expectations set by the previous Leader X Pedal Consumption frame, the Kagero. Look for The Renovatio this Fall at your local Leader Bikes dealer.”

There’s a new offering from Breakbrake 17, the Karma Track:
“The BB17 Karma track frame geometry was inspired from the modern track racing bike, Features like short wheelbase, responsive but also stable and comfortable. The frame is an ideal bike for urban track riders. 7005-T6 Triple Butted tubes makes the frame lighter and stiff to give you control to transferring all your power to the road. ROUND-AERO down tube sharp and unique tapered seat stays to dissipate road shock for a smooth ride.
Colors available in : Matt Gray/Blue, Matt Black/Purple, Brushed Satin Finish with Clearcoat/Yellow”

I have to say, this is the best looking Histogram to date. Before there were dozens of modern, aluminum low pros, there was the Cinelli Mash Histogram. These frames have found their way to the far reaches of the globe and for 2014, Mash did something a little new:
“With the 2014 trade shows approaching, there will be more information available on collaborations we have in store with Cinelli. The first announcement is the revised finish of our Histogram set. This polished frame shares the original lines, updated in grayscale tones. We will open a pre-order 30 days before these land in the US later this fall. Stay tuned!”
I’m sure I’ll be seeing and shooting one of these soon enough…

Tokyo Fixed is still alive and well inside Kinoko Cycles. The shop’s in-house frames sold so well this year that they just restocked. That includes the popular Death Spray Custom collaborative frame the Ono, one of the best production track frames in my opinion! Holler at Kinoko for ordering!

Another artist that’s been working with Unknown and CBNC on their raffle bikes is David Flores. Ace from The Sleepers went over to David’s studio while he was working on masking out the frameset and his photos are very nice. Worth the click-through even… If you’re in LA this evening, roll through the raffle event tonight!
The Great Divide Road Frameset
The Little Wing Track Frameset
I can’t tell you how many companies I get emailing me their frames but rarely do the words Made in the USA appear in the copy. No 22 is a Canadian company, using a well-known US-based titanium manufacturer to produce high end but affordable frames.
Their two models are the Great Divide road frame and the Little Wing track frame. Both of which tout clean detailing and construction. I’m waiting on a complete build to post as well, so stay tuned. Until then, check out No 22′s offerings here!
… and they mean business for the Red Hook Crit Navy Yard. Three guys from Division 1, a new bike shop on the East Side of Austin will be there racing. More on their bikes tomorrow!

Chris Bishop’s Columbus MS track frame made the rounds on the internet almost immediately after it was built and documented. I’d say that it was one of his most popular frames to date. So popular that when Ben put a deposit down, he specifically requested the road version of the beloved MS track frame and that’s exactly what he got! See more at the Bishop Flickr!
