Unknown Bike Co. is a new California-based manufacturer of fixed gear bikes.  Based in Long Beach, they currently offer five different frames.  Most are aluminum and all offer an extremely lightweight and stiff ride.  This particular bike is their “Combat” model, which is more of an urban fixed than a purebred track beast.  I got a size […]

Gold Pake single speed

Here’s a Pake “Rum Runner” single speed that I built for a friend of mine.  It’s a 56cm frame with a KHS track fork, an Surly wheelset with flip-flop rear hub, front and rear brakes, and riser bars.  The tires were the stock Avocet 700x32c skinwall slicks came from my RB-T, which should deliver a […]

Vintage Columbia Sport

This was a quickie restoration I did over the weekend, of a 1960’s-era Columbia Sport bicycle.  Super relaxed frame geometry for cruising around town, and the trademark “hellenic” seat stays.  Nifty chainring cut outs and original headbadge keep this bike looking old school despite the orange and black fade paint job I gave it.  27″ […]

Bianchi “What You Want Ho” Pista

Here’s a build I threw together the other day from parts I had around the house.  It’s a 2007 Bianchi Pista frame that was powdercoated red.  I added a Sugino Messenger crankset, BMX platform pedals with clips and doubles traps, a brown leather Concor Max saddle, flat bars w/ Oury grips, and a flip-flop wheelset.  […]
