A friend o' mine performing a no handed track stand... he held for at least a minute. He was curious about the history of his bike...It says Veloce...more pics to come

The fork is not original. Sugino cranks (I think) Suzue Promax hubs, velocity deepv rims, and armadillo tires.

The monkey sticker was not original with the bike. Anyone heard of this bike before? It appears to be quality made.
I'm not familiar with this logo.No_sprint

I don't know a manufacturer using a little green gremlin type of guy for a logo. :)

This is now...I got tired of all the knicks and scratches on my steed, so I wrapped it with old tubes, ala NYC style.
when you having a yard sale, I see lots of junk in there!!! nmafrican

No bike stuff is junk...it all gets used or will get used NMtronracer

How do you get the tubes to stay like that? nmSintesi

Pretty simple really...tronracer
Jul 31, 2002 7:18 AM
I used a scissor and cut the tubes open using a seam as a guide so I cut it straight. Then I just wrapped it like bar tape (tight). A little electrical tape and voila (spelling?)
That's how you spell 'voila," just missing the accent.Sintesi

I've seen one or two veloce frames at the local velodrome (Ttown). They appear to be approximately mid 80's vintage. Other than that, I can't say too much but they definitely don't slow the rider down as he always seems to place high!

Yeah thats my bike my freind posted the picture. I used to go to community college. If you want a track stand contest thats cool I'll bring my mountain bike. I like the paint job to but its really chipped up... sux
what a small worldishmael

yea I like that frame a lot, I'm pretty particular too. Chipped paint is nice in a way, you dont have to worry about it getting chipped, I have a visual image of the one chip on my new frame. And it was a knuckle handed mechanic who did it. I dont think the track stand competition is worth meeting up for but when(not if) I see you out and about we're on.
so i know what phaze ridesSteve_0

Ive got the only abici Ive ever seen. Its bluish silver with kyseriums without the stickers. Ive been hooking up with the art museum rides a lot lately. sat,sun,thur. Have been doing the drives on tue but try to get out to wayne bikeline instead to avoid the inevitable crash. I only ride my bike in big pointless circles as fast as possible.
