Detroit Lexus Velodrome

The 64,000-square-foot, $4 million Lexus Velodrome opened on January 26, 2018. The Lexus Velodrome project was led by Dale Hughes, Executive Director of the Detroit Fitness Foundation and velodrome-designer. Hughes has built more than 20 velodromes around the world.

The indoor multi-sport complex was built on Edward Tolan Playfield in Midtown. The site was named in 1968 to honor Thomas Edward “Eddie” Tolan. Tonlan was nicknamed the “Midnight Express”, a track and field athlete, Cass Tech graduate and two-time Olympic Gold Medalist.

Alter Cycles Reflex Bike

Alter Cycles feature a flexing of the down-tube absorbs road bumps providing a smoother ride.

Making pedaling easier and more efficient by lengthening the power stroke, storing energy during the down stroke and releasing that energy at the bottom of the pedal stroke. When the energy is released, it reduces or eliminates the dead spot in your pedal stroke for a more even distribution of power. The result: pedaling is easier and more efficient, allowing you to accelerate faster and climb hills in higher gears.

ZIPP Dimond Custom

In building this bike, Morse sought to represent his career by selecting a Dimond frame and slightly modifying it for track usage. He designed the molds and did the carbon layup. He also designed the fork. For wheels, he selected the Super-9 Disc and 808 Firecrest Carbon Clinchers, both wheels he helped design.

Morse also sought to pay tribute to the bygone era of unconventional aero superbikes of the 1990s. The American-themed paint scheme of his Dimond bike is a tribute to the “Project 96” bikes of the 1996 U.S. Olympic cycling team.
