Thunderdome

SCROLL DOWN

The Thunderdome is our UCI approved fire-breathing track racing monster!

It was designed to do only one thing: go fast! From the distance events to the sprints, the T-Dome has proved itself on the boards of velodromes across the country. New this year is the UCI certification for international competition which now allows it to compete in any UCI sanctioned event. You see, we'd been getting a lot of interest from track racing programs from far flung countries, but without that sticker, the T-Dome didn't make sense for their programs. So we did the legwork, got the certification, and now any track racer can be assured that this thing meets the UCI's strictest requirements and is good to go at any level of competition.

Because we’re into the classics, even with our aluminum bikes, it boasts traditional round-profile tubing, beautifully polished aluminum sections, replaceable stainless-steel axle pads, carbon fork, our custom headtube badge and a classic 1 1/8” headtube. It fits a 700 x 25c tire and the fork is drilled to accept a brake.

Custom Details

We’re way into the handbuilt touches when it comes to our frames. Which is why you’ll find things like internal cable routing, custom dropouts, lugged crown forks, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, hidden fender mounts, etc on our framesets

7000 Series Tubing

7000 Series is the benchmark for high end aluminum tubesets. It is both harder and stronger than 6000 series delivering uncompromising responsiveness.
