Bike Check: PIAS 2012 

This year Sumvelo & Cyclonesia launched an updated version of their PIAS frames, available in 3 new colors including the limited edition (only 20 out there) seafoam green. Geometry wise there’s no change from the old frame, though they reduced the rake of the fork, bringing the front end in a bit and creating a tighter ride overall. I can’t stress enough how great a frame this is! Stiff, responsive, and pretty light for a steel frame.

Right now this is my only fixed gear bike left, my daily workhorse. I didn’t really see the point in owning a non-PIAS build seeing how fun this frame is, which is why I sold my other bikes. Call me a fanboy, but I am hooked!
