Neo Retro Road Frame

Finally a road frame for myself! Special thanks to Jason Grove for building this beauty and to Allan Neymark for the wet paint. It features an Easton 7005 Ultralite front triangle, Reynolds Ouzo Pro carbon seatstays and Columbus Zonal s-bend chainstays. It tips the scales at 2.9 lbs - not bad for a 59cm frame for my tall ass!

The paint scheme is reminiscent of open-wheeled race cars...metallic gray base coat, cream panels, Irish green decals and of course liquid clear coat. The gothic 'A' head badge is enclosed in a cream circle for the finishing touch. Stay tuned for pics of the built machine which will feature a full Dura Ace build kit and some delicious Reynolds Attack clinchers.


Interbike, Vanderlicious and MTBR

Interbike is a great show and this year was no exception. Flying in late Wednesday night, we connected with the Vanderkitten crew after Cross Vegas and headed over to the Sinclair VIP party. Nothing like a bunch of bike geeks jammed into a small space with music blaring and drinks flowing all around...

We're very thankful to Vanderkitten for displaying three complete bikes from Ahrens Bicycles at this year's show. Our brand new Whole Shot cross frame made its debut in Vegas and we couldn't be happier. For many weeks leading up to Interbike all parties involved worked diligently to get these bikes done! With a brown and pink color scheme, these bikes and complimentary VK kits will be a sure standout this season.

Thursday and Friday were very busy days and we had meetings with Reynolds, FSA, DT Swiss, Hope and Fox Racing. Of course we saw sick new products that will make their way onto new frames very soon! And after working in this industry for many years, it really is a small world. I ran into Francis from MTBR and he was kind enough to post a small blurb about Ahrens Bicycles in their show coverage blog....CLICK HERE to see it.

Good luck to Mandy Lozano this cross season! Check out her blog HERE.
Below is a shot of Roubaix Girl's (aka Liz Hatch) race frame. Soon to be outfitted with tubular carbon wheels from Reynolds, this bike has been raced numerous times this year. Twice in Vegas at both the women's and men's crit races! Check out the blog HERE.
