Aventon Bikes: Aluminum Track Frames

I recently came across a company called Aventon Bikes on facebook and thought I'd give them a little love here. Aventon Bikes is a new company based out of SoCal that has just released a new aluminum track bicycle frame. The Aventon Mataro is a smooth looking double butted aluminum frameset that includes a hydroformed top tube, areo-dynamic fork and integrated sealed bearing headset. These guys are planning on officially launching the frame at the Marathon Crash race in LA tonight. They plan on launching a few aero framesets and based on the look of their first frameset, I bet they'll do well. Best of luck to them!

Aluminum track bikes have grown in popularity over the last few years with companies like Leader Bikes and Cinelli leading the charge. Other companies have seen these frames flying off the shelves so of course they're hopping on the bandwagon. Companies like Dosnoventa and Low Bicycles have been doing these frames for a while and offer a more boutique custom framesets that are high quality and fairly expensive. Recently our friends here in Wisconsin EigthInch launched their aluminum track frame the EightInch Manifest which looks pretty nice. State Bicycle Company has been teasing their own aluminum complete bike recently and I'm sure it will drop soon. My favorite has to be the Zyclefix Throne for no reason other than the fact it's made by a company named Zyclefix.

I think that Leader Bikes is about to feel the heat because a market they've pretty much dominated over the last few years is about to get very crowded. My guess is there are a lot more of these frames about to drop and once companies like PureFix get involved it basically becomes a game of limbo - how low can you go?

Be on the look out for aluminum track bikes in your neighborhood.
