New Big Block Colors

For summer 2011 we are proud to introduce some new Big Block options. 

If you've been following the blog you may recall that my personal Big Block is painted a lovely sparkly jeweled white, and we now offer that option to you as a new frameset color.

These just recently came into stock and we will be going forward with both the new white version and the classic black w/ white tips scheme that you've come to know and depend on. 

We also just received the first shipment of drop bar Shelby silver completes.
the paint job for this bike was inspired by the classic silver Shelby Cobra

We had recieved feedback that consumers were a little confused as to what the Big Block was, 'if it's a track bike why does it come with riser bars and a water bottle mount?' 'If it's a commuter, why doesn't it have fender mounts?' You know that sort of thing. 

Well the answer is that we think a riser bar is typically a better choice for city riding than drops, and we like to ride our track bikes far so we need water.  However we definitely don't want anyone thinking that this isn't a full blown velodrome machine so we decided to switch up the paint scheme and offer it with a track drop to keep the Cali kids happy.  We think it looks great in this package and are stoked to add this to our line for summer 2011.  We still have red/white rise bar Big Blocks available in most sizes, so don't fret, we're just giving you more options.

Both are available right now.
