The second bike in Tokyo Fixed’s 2013 line to be announced is the Trooper CX. Cross bikes are incredibly versatile. You can do light touring, gravel, road, dirt, singletrack and even race them in their intended arena and the Trooper looks like a worthy ride for all the above.
Check out more information at Tokyo Fixed.
Tokyo Fixed unveiled their new 2013 Dart track bike today:
“Most obviously, we’ve gone large. The headtube takes a 44mm zero-stack headset, and the top tube and downtube are similarly brutish. We custom sourced the tubing for this frame, no-one else is using tubes this big. This means the weight stays down, but the frame is unbelievably stiff; this complete bike is down to 7.8kg. Our team rider Jacob says it rides more like our S1 than the old Dart, the huge tubes imparting comfort as well as responsiveness.”

Sun Graphics does a hell of a lot of resprays, oops, pardon me, I meant “restorations”… Shit. Let me start over. In Australia, if you need a place to get a classic Eddy Merckx restored to (or above and beyond) its original condition, the place to go is Sun Graphics.
Andy at FYXO works exclusively with Sun and Shifter to deliver pristine complete future Eddy Merckx classics. Above is one of my favorite Merckx liveries, team Stuttgart. This one’s heading off to Sun for a little TLC and below is a classic Eddy Merckx famed for polished Campagnolo.
I can’t wait to see how both of these turn out. Maybe they’ll be a future Merckx Mondays?
Here’s an update to the run of production frames that Winter displayed at NAHBS. Dubbed the Tool Series, these frames offer an easily accessible, handmade road frame designed for everything from daily use to road racing. Each Tool Series frame is made in Oregon by Winter Bicycles using fillet brazing and is fit to the rider. These bikes are built to order, feature a Pegoretti Falz Carbon Fork, a Cane Creek 110 Headset and come in two color schemes: Pewter and Hammervein (pictured). See more at Winter and check out additional photos at the Winter Flickr.
Check out Colossi‘s new Low Pros. Pretty sharp!
“Low Pro is constructed with our proprietary 6061 Double Butted Aluminum tubing by our skillful frame builder. The smooth welding technique makes the frame looks seamless and ultra-sleek. The geometry and ultra aero tube profile enhance aerodynamic.

Unknown is having a photo contest and sorry for the late notice, but it fell into my inbox quagmire during NAHBS. This contest is going until March 8th, so hurry and get on it. Here are the rules:
- Take a photo of your bike built around an Unknown frame.
- It can be still or action shot.
- Doesn’t have to be shot with the nicest equipment as long as the photo is engaging.
- The photo must be posted on their Facebook page.
The winner will receive a PS1 frame, K6 cranks, an Unknown carbon fork and a headset.
It’d been a while since I’ve seen some activity on the Nabiis Flickr, so when I saw this big ol’ tapered fork I had to share it. They collaborated with FTC on two aluminum A2 frames. Coated with a razzle-dazzle inspired paint job, these frames have a release date of March 8th. See more at the Nabiis Flickr. I’ll be seeing these in Taiwan at the end of the month!
