Carbon fiber is a wondrous material, and I’d love to have it all over my tech, but it can get expensive quickly. That’s one of the reasons why a new company has decided to make this durable material available in cases and wallets.

iPad cases are a dime a dozen, but this one is made out of carbon fiber, a material known for its extreme lightness and cool looks. It’s often used in race cars and bicycles, so why not use it for a portable device case for the iPad? The only problem is the price: 200 clams for a case? I don’t know.

New photos of the Colnago C150 have surfaced. It’s a pretty frame. To be honest, to commemorate the Italian Unification, I would have opted for Campagnolo’s new electronic shifting group. Granted, only a few teams in the pro peloton have it, but it could have made it pretty exclusive.

I’ve been asked a few times about OEM frames. Recently, I’ve come in contact with a factory from China who’s looking to sell their OEM frames. They have one carbon road bike available that’s a monocoque frame. The weave is either 3K or 12K. The finish is a raw carbon clear coating. Overall weight for a 54cm us 1,175g.
BB:ENG BSA or BB30
Available sizes: 48 50 52 54 56 58 60 62CM
Price is $600 USD. I’ll order the frames once I get a minimum order of 4 frames/bikes. There are some Shimano components available as well. Send me an email at asteriskcycles at gmail dot com to find out more.

We’re getting ready to order a bunch of new frames, especially the Colnago C59 Italia and the TIME RXR-S Ulteam. If you’re considering a purchase, let us know. Frames will be delivered in about a month or, depending on what the order status is.

The order came in within a few weeks and I was honestly surprised at how good this bike looked. The look is minimal, with the black and white.

This is one of the last frames that we ordered before the cutoff for the 2010 models. It took a while for us to get it, but it looked really good. It was sent off to Singapore and received by the client.

I saw a Taiwanese Pinarello Prince frame. It’s the same frame as the legendary Prince, but without the same paintjob. These are made in Taiwan at the same factory. I wasn’t impressed with the overall finish of this demo frame, but since the customer can decide on what they want, that makes up for it.

A few weeks ago, I came across this lugged frame. I was impressed by the overall finish and learned that it was a Taiwanese-made frame. This is not an OEM frame, but more of a boutique-ish frame that’s available only locally in Taiwan.We do not sell this frameset.
