Carbon = light weight and rigidity (efficiency). I, as a vintage track bikes lover and collector, always rode the most rigid vintage bikes – steel track ones, mostly made for sprint discipline. Steel is awesome and steel is real, without a doubt, but steel is heavy. Аfter lovely 11 years with vintage I’ve decided to broaden the horizons and try something new. I’ve never had and ridden a carbon bike before. My goal was to build a lightweight fixed gear bike with rigid and reliable components I like, not just the lightest. In build v1.0 there are only a several parts which are almost impossible to lighten, such as cranks, rims, bottom bracket, chainring bolts and a few more little parts. Next season I’m going to reach sub 8 lbs (3628g) without changing the main components (THM, ax-lightness, Schmolke, Raketa and Extralite). Stay tuned!
