September 27.13 – Hins Track Build

We built Hins girlfriend a sweet utility commuter, then we built Hin a cool Di2 road machine, but Hin still needed one more, he needed a street ready track bike for bombing around town. Here it is…

Hin’s a photographer and Im sure a good few of you can spot where the inspiration came from for this build. Yep, the iconic Leica camera. Built from Reynolds 953, with the top tube and head tube brushed much like on the camera, matt black paint to mimic the textured body of the camera and then highlights in the Leica red.

Geometry lends itself to fast city riding, and with a parts package including Royce, Thomson and custom bar tape and saddle recovery by Busyman, this is one awesome around town bike.

Thanks to George Marshall for the photos.
