Hi. Thanks for the site.
my Kogswell P58 - last batch of the lugged Kogswells. I believe
150 total were made of the "P." This is my road bike, although it
doesn't fit in too well with the carbon bikes I encounter around
San Diego. The previous owner came up with the color scheme (metallic
gunmetal paint) and most components - mostly vintage Shimano 105
- also you'll find: a Brooks Professional pre-softened saddle; TTT
stem; Nitto moustache bars; MKS track pedals (soon to be switched
out with black touring pedals when the order arrives); Schwalbe
Marathons; Mavic MA3 wheels; Velo-orange unpolished fenders and
mudflap; aluminum bell; Sliver sidepulls, Tektro levers with shellaced
black cloth tape.
not much of a speed demon - riding mostly for transportation - but
this is a fast, fun bike. Kirk
Pacenti's lugs are hard to see in the photos - but consult other
P entries to check them out. I'm tempted to get a konversion fork
and turn the bike into a P-P/R.
