been awhile since I've built up a bike, and I've had this frame
for over a year. But here it is now with a combination of parts
on hand and parts sourced from Velo-Orange.
the P/R Mk II from Kogswell. A frame designed for 650B wheels and
fenders, and low trail for front load carrying. It is powder coated
black for durability and timelessness. Components were chosen for
looks as well as function and the only bolt on components (aside
from the contact points) that aren't silver are the brass bell and
the handlebars. I plan on replacing the handlebars at some point.
supplied the bell, decaleur, fenders, brakes, water bottle cages,
and leather mud flap. Wheels are Ultegra hubs (7s shifted by 8s
Campy Record brifters and rear derailleur) laced to Velocity 650B
Aeroheads from Chainring Transit Authority. Tires are Grand Bois
Hetres, 42 mm. Cranks and front derailleur are Shimano Dura Ace.
Rounding out the build are Campagnolo seat post, Flite gel saddle,
Time pedals, Nitto M12 rack, Titek Malone bar, Velox bar plugs,
Fizik bar tape, and a California Innovations cooler bag.
sure this build will change, but not very much. It rides very, very
smooth due to a combination of the frame design and the tires. I'm
looking forward to putting many kilometres on this bike.
