Posted by on November 14th, 2011

Affinity Cycles and its founder Jason Gallacher are proud to officially launch the Kissena Velo Fund. Joiun us as we embark on this historic project. Please visit the Kissena Velo Fund website to learn more about details. The Kissena Velo Fund’s goal is to create and revitalize the Kissena Velodrome into a world class indoor 250 meter Velodrome and create the New York City Cycling Center and Museum.

This 501(c)3 non for profit organization is being set up to create a state of the art facility to celebrate and educate the history of cycling in New York City, and also to build champions in its Olympic caliber training center.

Affinity is launching the Kissena Velo Fund by offering a limited edition Kissena Velo Fund frame set and complete bicycle.

This limited edition Affinity Kissena complete bicycle or frame set will be offered only on the Kissena Velo Fund and Affinity Cycles website, and all proceeds from the sale of this bicycle will go to the Kissena Velo Fund. Only 250 frames will be made, to celebrate the achievement of building a 250 meter Velodrome. Each frame will be uniquely numbered, and your donation will make you a patron of the Kissena Velo Fund and your name will be proudly engraved into memorial wall which honors those who contributed to the fund to help make this project possible. This limited edition frame set is $750.00 for the frame and fork, and the complete bicycle is $1,500.00.

Milwaukee based bicycle component company Fyxation has come on board for this project to help build this custom bike, including its new track handle bars, pilot saddle, classic cloth bar tape, bar ends and their new Accela Road Tire.
