We previewed Pure Fix’s 6061 Keirin Pro frameset at Interbike last fall, and now the brand has pulled the curtain off of three complete builds of the bike. Each of the three builds starts off with a track-specific alloy race frame ready to hit the banks of a velodrome, or the sketchy urban turns of events like last weekend’s Red Hook Crit. In either case the Keirins deliver race performance at three options under a grand. Take a close look at the bikes after the jump…
The base level Keirin complete will set you back just $470 and is hard to beat as a proper track racer. Available only in black, this entry-level race bike is put together from budget-friendly, mostly house-branded components, still up to the task of battling on the boards or the mean streets. It uses a slightly slackened seattube, a bit longer wheelbase, and a little less refined heavier frameset to deliver comparable performance at a lower cost.
Step up one level to the Keirin Pro, and for $580 you get the quicker handling frameset with more aero tube shaping. It also gets so small component upgrades to drop weight further and zip you around the race course faster.
At the top though is the Keirin Pro Elite, still for just $970. It builds off the same aero frame as the Pro, which a big spec upgrade. The Pro Elite includes Pure Fix’s new all carbon fork, plus Miche and Deda components to be ready for proper elite racing right out of the box. Like the Pro, the Pro Elite also is available in three colors: a simple shiny black, raw alloy, or the shimmery duochrome that changes color depending on the angle light hits it.
