After launching some amazing looking alloy road bikes early this year, Sir Chris Hoy’s eponymous brand is launching a track bike for adults and youth, plus a fully geared kids road bike.

The Fiorenzuola track bike, above, uses a triple butted aluminum frame with carbon fork, SRAM Omnium crankset and Q-Lite/Alex wheels with Kenda tires. They’re clinchers, but the idea is to get on the track without blowing the budget, then upgrade as you get more into it. With a retail of just £750, it’ll get you started racing and carry you for a while. Or it’ll just make for a very fancy street fixie thanks to a drilling for front brakes.

If you’re sticking to the planks, you’ll be able to take junior along for the ride on the Meadowbank. Shown below, it’s a 650C version for youth about 8 years and older. It’s also sporting a carbon fork but gets 145mm cranks, short reach/drop bars and a bit lighter 44/16 gearing…

Stunning! I want to get one and put a Copenhagen wheel on it.

Christ they are horrendous. Like the ¥e Boardman bikes, they look like a cash in on a name. Which is exactly what they are. Can’t stand “Sir” Chris Hoy, a really nasty bloke, I know, I used to work closely with him. Two faced would be a good description. And he does not pay tax. A horrible man, a pox on his houses.

At least the kids will have something else to lust after instead of video games!
