We are at the core of our very heart a track bike brand, always have been, always will be. Because of that, we wanted to up jump our velodrome game, and create a full on race specific alloy sprint monster.
Enter the Thunderdome.
We've taken our tried and true Big Block geometry and adapted it to a shorter axle to crown carbon fork and alloy frameset. Because we love the lines of the old Cannondale track bikes, we went with traditional round tubing, a standard 1 1/8" headset, and to give it that AC touch, polished panels on the downtube and chainstay.
It is stiff, fast, and ready to race.
Track Racing Geometry
Velodrome ready angles and BB height, custom designed to rip it up on our wooden and steep local veldrome.
7000 Series Alloy tubeset for the ultimate in stiffness and weight savings.
AC Carbon track fork w/ alloy steerer.
We beautifully polish the downtube and chainstay panels, then apply a nice wet paint clear coat.
