Seems like summer is finally around the corner.. After some heavy rains and being locked in a dungeon for work after I got around I was amazed by how green and beautiful the nature was around my commute.
But since I am no nature photographer I had to add my baby into the mix. She’s gotten a few updates since you last saw her. The risers fit my commute ride perfect. This bike rolls like a dream and none of my other machines compare. She’s a beaut!
Oops! Seems like I forgot to post the rest of these. Well probably doesn’t matter cause the images have been floating around the net for a while. But anyhow, thought I’d put a bunch of these up on my own site as well since the beauty of this build deserves it.
Thanks kid_scientific again for letting me grab pics of this beauty!
For some unintentional reasons I’ve actually never posted pictures of the bike that I ride the most. This is my trusted workhorse geared up for rainy days.
The heart of my workhorse is an Olmo Olli Erkkilä modified Pista which started out as a road frame and through the hands of Olli, ended up being an amazing track frame that rides like a dream.
Other parts are no nonsense parts that I can trust and that can take the rain and dirt that this bikes gets hit with daily.
Sram Omnium drivetrain, Halo/On-One wheel set with white Vittorias, Brooks Swift, Nitto on the steering.
So here’s my workhorse all dirtied up after my morning commute. :)
I went through some of my older photos of the Rossin and Takhion by Olli Erkkilä and thought I’d post a few that now struck my eye.
Olli is a genius and straight up good guy with an eye for detail unlike many I’ve encountered. To prove this all you have to do is look at these.
