Since its founding in 2006, Brooklyn's Affinity Cycles has made quite the name for themselves worldwide thanks to a knack for developing innovative track and road frame designs—not to mention an impressively stocked Williamsburg shop. While each frame that bears the CNC-machined Affinity "A" badge is one to behold, their Kissena track frame (named for the infamous Kissena Velodrome in Queens, NY) is the most successful yet, having won two World Championships and over 20 US National and European championships. To celebrate their seven years as a top manufacturer, Affinity just released a beautiful blue World Champion Edition Kissena frame, made in a limited edition of 40.

A marvel in geometry, aerodynamics and aesthetics, the flagship track frame is done in brilliant indigo sparkle blue paint with gold foil and rainbow striped graphics—to match the iconic World Champion rainbow jersey. With just 40 made, the rare handmade frame set is now available from Affinity Cylces in store and online for $800. And if the blue is too bright for you, check their freshly introduced Asphalt Kissena frame set.
