Interbike 2008 – Affinity Cycles
The Affinity Lo Pro sloping track frame was kickin’ it with white tires. Ã‚Â Not white walls, white tires. Ã‚Â Pretty slick. Ã‚Â It features CroMo tubing with a lugged straight blade CroMo fork. Ã‚Â It’s available in an Extra Small 47cm size, plus 53cm, 57cm and 60.5cm and retails for about $500 (frame/fork). Ã‚Â Check out the other two models they had in the booth by reading “more”…
The Affinity 212 HM Carbon has compact geometry, integrated seat mast and a straight-blade carbon fork. Ã‚Â They claim it makes a cool “intimidating” aero whistle noise when you ride, assuming you’re fast enough. Ã‚Â The huge bottom bracket area makes the bike stiff. Ã‚Â MSRP is $1,250 for frame/fork.
This lilac colored number is their 2009 Kissena bladed aero track bike. Ã‚Â Made of 7005 Aluminum, it comes with a straight blade 1-1/8″ carbon fork (w/ alu steerer). Ã‚Â Available in three sizes (52, 55 anc 57cm), it has aero tubes aplenty with a strengthened bottom bracket area and extended head tube for maximum stiffness. Ã‚Â MSRP is $800.
