Aeon's Custom Blue Powder Powered Bike

Aeon's latest build is all cute and nice with its baby blue paint job and hot pink straps. Don't let that fool you tho. Under the paint gloss and utilitarian simplicity of this bike is an aggressive geometry. Ridden everyday against Manila's traffic and the elements, it is a commuter monster machine capable of taking it's owner in any destination.

Check out the specs and more photos after the break.

Tim's Custom Maldea Track Build

This is one of the cleanest builds I see around here. Tim can be very meticulous with his bikes and we can clearly see that character in this build.

Fixum Machina

We all know that Maldea frames have been going place for some time now. This one here was built in Manila and then built up in Singapore. Thanks to the internet, this pursuit track frame was created after several email exchanges between it's proud owner, Marvi and it's maker, Ave.

Specs and more photos after the break.

Legnano Remixed

This was an old road frame "converted" into a track frame. With the help of Ave Maldea, we were able to adjust the geometry to a more aggressive configuration. We also changed the seat lug from stamped to investment cast. The Italian threaded bottom bracket has also been replaced with an English threaded one. Finally, the horizontal dropouts were replaced with stainless steel track ends.
