Brick Lane Bikes: Aeon
"The Aeon is our flagship Frame set. Moulded as a single carbon structure, joints and seams are eliminated providing a frame that is stiffer and stronger, lacking in stress points.
Constructed from Super high modulus Toray carbon fibre, the Aeon is moulded using internal bladders to ensure uniform tube density for an ultra light - ultra reliable frameset.
Rigid, tight and blisteringly fast - The geometry is tuned for the rigours of street and crit racing.
Short chain stays and steep head angle make for a responsive machine equally as comfortable at dodging riders on the circuit to cutting through the mayhem of Piccadilly circus."

Yesterday we wrapped up our 6th Tour De Bronx while throwing a slight detour to sea food city in our route making yesterday the De-Tour De Bronx. I usually shoot the Tour De Bronx portraits at the courthouse steps but with the change of start locations and registration becoming longer than a line for Michael Jordan's latest re-released sneakers, for the 1st time, I couldn't shoot at the start. During the detour and after some food and drinks from City Island's own sea food city, I lined up those riders who made it to the detour and shot our 6th installment of Tour De Bronx portraits.
We proceeded to skip the tail end of the tour and make our way to the finish line of the tour to meet up with fellow riders and make way towards the Bronx beer hall for more drinks and good times. Something that most of us look forward to at the end of the tour.

During my last day at the 2016 Inter bike trade show in Las Vegas, I noticed a woman walking with a track frame which caught my eye. I always keep an eye out for the latest products in urban cycling so I needed to take a closer look. After a brief introduction, I was able to get a detailed breakdown of "The Viper" which is the latest track bike from London's Brick Lane Bikes.
All our experience designing and riding steel and alloy track frames has culminated in the birth of the BLB Viper - an embodiment of evolution.
Crafted from 6061 double butted aluminum, the Viper will launch from the gates and continue the attack through the corners of the course - The 35mm tapered fork ensures you stay on track whether fighting through switchbacks or busy city traffic.
The integrated seat post keeps weight down while increasing rigidity - rigidity that extends downwards into a burly BB shell, transferring 100% of your power to explosive sprints and summit killing climbs."
