This has got to be the sickest modern production track bike I’ve ever seen. A mix of fillet brazed Columbus MAX and Zona really hammers home the meaning behind “ono”, or a tool for cutting through your obstacles in Japanese. See more photos of the Tokyo Fixed Ono here and pick one up here. This will probably be your only chance to own a Death Spray Custom designed paint job!
I’m so glad there are more and more production steel road bikes available now. One of which is the Tokyo Fixed Road Rocket. Steel road bikes are great for a number of reasons and I can bark about it all day but you’ve just gotta ride one to understand.
Swing through Tokyo Fixed if you’re in London and check these bikes out. If you’re not in London, you could always just look at some recent customer builds on their Flickr. Did I mention this beast has some Columbus MAX in it?
When I think of UK framebuilders, I think of Reynolds tubing, Nervex lugs, bent-rake forks, path racer geometry and a classic paint job. While Enigma definitely nods to all of these, their performance-based cycles are a lot more modern than their predecessors. Made in the UK, from stainless, Ti and good old steel, Enigma is one of the few UK manufacturers who chose domestic over a dockside delivery. Tokyo Fixed Gear is their newest UK dealer, so swing on over to test ride or purchase one of their track, road or commuter frames.
Tokyo Fixed Gear‘s frame lineup for 2012 is rounded off with their new road model, the Road Rocket. If you’re in London, swing through the shop to test ride one, beginning today.
“With the Road Rocket we went ahead and indulged by designing our dream road frame. We have used our favorite tubing (Columbus MAX chain stays and down tube, Spirit seat tube and head tube and a skinny Keirin top tube & seat stays) to deliver performance in all the right places. The frame weighs 1.7kg / 2.06kg inc the Columbus Minimal full carbon fork. The Road Rocket is a credible contendor against titanium and carbon frames with all the comfort and durability steel brings. Estimated retail price will be £775 frame only / £900 frame and fork. Our first shipment is in the water now and will be with us very soon.
We will be offering the Road Rocket as a great value complete as well as a framset with a choice of Shimano Ultegra or 105. “
