The Topo Track bike spawned from a collaboration between the workshop and Brett Hernandez to build a super unique ride and showcase it at the 2018 NAHBS in Hartford CT.
The custom build is a super stiff track machine capable of handling city streets and long loop runs in the park. Made from a combination of Columbus steel tubing including COLUMBUS -LIFE, MAX, MEGA MAX, SPIRIT and ZONA. The tube profiles help maximize the ride characteristics making it rigid where you need it for hard accelerations and compliant where you don't to cope with long miles
We really love all the little details on this bike. The tapered head tube and ENVE fork make for a beautiful front end, while the subtle custom Horse dropouts take it completely over the top. All this, in conjunction with the complete ENVE build, makes for a super light weight, sturdy speed machine.
Ben Falcon Over at HORSE CYCLES PAINT really crushed this paint job. The CHRIS KING Anodized Orange was used as a reference for for the main accent color. Achieving that by laying down a metallic silver under about 4 coats of candy orange gives the thin topo lines a depth and shimmer that draws you in. 30 hrs after starting, Ben finalized the work with a fade-in fade-out top design that is really next level. Custom PHILWOOD painted hubs to match! The Topo ENVE stem is super killer and such a pleasure to look down at when pulling laps on a sunny afternoon ride. Thanks to Both Brett and Ben for making this super special build.
