I think in every mans life there comes a time for change, and it's been almost a year since I started riding my Cartel Bike:



Of course I love it and have grown fond of how it responds to me and the road, riding this bike has felt like I have been riding a muscle car of sorts - and it offers me the chance to reach very good top speeds; the only reason I am changing the bike is because of this....:



Yeh I want an Aqua Blue Avenue Lo frame as the base of my next bike!

And have been carefully checking out how customers at DINER have been customizing their Cartel Bikes, and have found some inspiration that I am going to channel into my new bike project.

Today at Diner this customer came through and purchased this custom 'Avenue Lo': 



I think it is a very good example of how to best customize your 'Avenue Lo', with very a streamlined silhouette and good use of carbon parts. 

Using Diner's Carbon Bullhorn Handle Bars:
 







Of course a Chris King Northread Headset:






SRAM Omni Track crankset:





Here is another example, and although it does not as heavily customized as the Avenue Lo featured above it still has some very nice touches to it.



Which are firstly these Nitto Bar Ends:



And secondly these Greddy Hub Nuts:
 


I have left out two particularly important parts as I don't want to give away everything before I put the bike together; and yes you read right I am going to put my new bike together myself, level up, skill up always experiencing my road.
