Marty's Mellow Yellow Track

Don't let the title deceive you. This custom Maldea frame might be mellow in color but it's geometry is far from it. With 76º angles for both head tube and seat tube, this bike gives you little option to ride in slow mode. Still a work in progress, Marty's plan is to make this build "all Japanes". But for now, I can clearly imagine him zipping thru traffic and bombing flats and hills on this bike, Japanese or not. "It's all speed and maneuverability" according to him. No doubt about it.

Check out more picks and the specs after the jump.
