Fixed Gear Crit

The rider and the bike: David Santos and his Aventon Cordoba

Fixed gear bikes are in essence very simple. However, to compete in the front of Red Hook Crit, or other big international fixed gear crits, high-end materials are often used by the riders to maximise their performance. In the series ‘the rider and the bike’ we want to highlight the fixed gear bikes of the ‘pro’s’. After kicking the series off with Stefan Rothe, followed by our own FGC bike ridden by Brian Megens, we now have David Santos from the Aventon Factory Team. A bike that likely is to be seen at the front of the Red Hook Criterium London No.3.
