One of the great joys (or rather, necessities) of cycling is maintaining your bike. From the basics of changing a tube to truing wheels to changing a chain, there's no better way to learn bike maintenance than building your own machine from the frame up. For those looking to build their own simple yet performance-oriented ride, look no further than the the Keirin Pro Track Frame from LA-based Pure Fix. Designed to balance aerodynamic performance with street-ready durability, the Keirin Pro's Duochrome colorway (that changes color depending on the light) is sure to turn some heads. Triple-butted 6061 aluminum—often used in airplane construction—is both lightweight and stiff for a solid feel at high speeds, whether you're commuting or just putting the hammer down.
At just $325 with fork and integrated headset, the Keiren Pro allows for an affordable, fun and educational DIY project.
