Carbon Troopers: Stormtrooper Armor Gets the Carbon Fiber Treatment

Leonard Carson had been toying with the idea of combining carbon fiber with stormtrooper armor for some time. He managed to convince three of his co-workers join his cause and this is the result. I have to say that these carbon troopers look quite impressive.

EliteFolio iPad 2 Case: Get Your Daily Allowance of Carbon Fiber

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.

2011 Colnago C150 Unification

Colnago C150 Unification

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.

OEM Carbon Fiber Frames

The 54cm-sized frame

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.

Headset-top:1-1/8″

Headset-down:1-1/4″

BB:ENG BSA or BB30

Available sizes: 48 50 52 54 56 58 60 62CM

Geometry chart of the frames

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.

AH’s Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way Frame

Pinarello Dogma Di2 My Way

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.

CH’s Giant TCR Advanced Frame

CH's TCR Advanced frame

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.

Taiwanese Pinarello Prince Frame

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.

Lugged Frame

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.
