I would hope so since my guess is that "fragment design" has nothing to do with bikes expect for hipster who likes trackbikes and designed some color schemes.

The cf is probably a bridgestone with a fork said hipster preferred to the aero one. Nothing that aero comes with a fork like that. Nagasawa maybe for the other? Some lug fetishist can probably say better.

The bike is a custom repaint off a look bike (the big carbon one) minus the forks which is something else (i think).. not sure and the other is a cinelli repaint. He has a black carbon just like the white one. Fragment is my friends design company. I'm sure he'll stick these on his wall or possibly ride it. Who knows. He has a ton of other bikes so these were just made just to make em. Theyre in Tokyo btw.. harajuku to be exact.

More photos of this bike are on my site, fatlace.com

Great looking frames but re-badging a Look? Blasphemy!

It is almost assuredly a bridgestone/anchor not a look.

It is not a LOOK frame. It is indeed a bridgestone/anchor. The stock bridgestone/anchor paint jobs is one of the best in the biz. shame to see it go.

Edit: number 18 beat me to it as I was typing up my post.

+1 Just look at where the seatstays meet the seat tube - absolutely nothing like the Look, which I'm assuming people are thinking is the KG 496:



Totally different frame design, and the fork is NOT swappable with something else. Consider also the seatpost binder bolt hole, dropouts, and rear wheel cutout on the Bridgestone.

In short, it's a Bridgestone/Anchor. Case closed.

Yup. The fragment frame has HORIZONTAL dropouts. and a non-integrated fork.

Note that track and TT versions of the KG496 differ only very slightly. Couldn't find a picture of the track version. My point was that the Bridgestone and the "Fragment" have the same dropouts, among other features.

Nitpicking. They are basically the same except for different dropouts glued in the back. (maybe geometry but I can't be arsed looking at $10,000 frames when my race bike is worth $2000 and my fixie is worth nothing (financially, but it has a special place in my heart )

I sort of envy that guy a little... with a LOOK and a Bridgstone kicking around in his office.

BTW, hot paintjobs.

Repainting a Cinelli seems at least as blasphemous as repainting a Bridgestone. Although they both look quite cool

Unsure about the Cinelli but the Anchor/Bridgestone is a repulsive paintjob so it was high time somebody corrected it.

Oh, oh, I want to have a design company so I can find random things, spraypaint them white, and put my company's name on them.

You guys should check out the Manboy Design half-crushed PBR can and dead cactus.

When someone paints their bike and put their logo's own it, it calls for sarcasm? Weird.. didn't you paint your bike. lol.. No wonder why I stopped going to this forum.. cause tons of people think their kerin bike makes them famous. it's the rider, not the bike.
