AFFINITY x MISHKA 5 YEARS
So I stopped by Affinity Cycles yesterday on my way to work and saw this beastly looking thing hanging around and I remember thinking “Holy shit, man.” The story from Mishka:
« Мишка is proud to announce a collaboration with Brooklyn’s Affinity Cycles to celebrate their five year anniversary. We met up with Affinity at Project in Las Vegas this year, and decided our own Lamour Supreme was the perfect person to design a Мишка/Affinity bike. Affinity supplied Lamour with five raw Kissena track frames, and he hand painted each frame. He was so excited he did the first one on the tradeshow floor (which you can see in the video above).
The results are five one of a kind pieces celebrating the five years Affinity Cycles have been building gear for the track racer and the street rider alike in NYC. All five custom painted frames are for sale as a complete bikes or as a frame-sets.
A portion of the proceeds from the frames will go to the Kissena Velo Fund, a non-profit project spearheaded by Affinity, currently working to bring a world class indoor 250 meter velodrome to NYC. It’s a great fund that you should support by buying one of these amazing and unique frames, available now. »
While I couldn’t afford buying another bike right now, I still made a nice donation to the Kissena Velo Fund to help revitalize Kissena Velodrome. Support your grassroots track scene!
