Hello,

Forgive the quality of these shots as they were taken with a BlackBerry camera.

The bike is a Kogswell P58, repainted by Noah Rosen of Velocolour (www.velocolour.com).

It rides really well and has done a bunch of moderate-length tours in Niagara region, Prince Edward County (Ontario, Canada) and in Italy on both sides of the Appenines. It is my morning ride bike and alternates a bit with my Mariposa on weekends.

In case anyone is interested in the build, it is:
Campagnolo Chorus threaded headset
Nitto Technomic Deluxe stem
Nitto Noodle 46cm handlebar
Stella Azzura perforated bar tape
Campagnolo Veloce 9-speed Ergolevers w/Hudz
Bordeaux Gold gum-style hoods
Shimano RX-100 standard-reach brakes
Shimano Dura-Ace fluted 27.4mm seatpost (this was hard to find!)
Brooks B17 Champion Special saddle
Campagnolo Veloce 9-speed triple derailleurs
Campagnolo Veloce triple crankset, with 50t and 40t
Campagnolo rings and a 28t Salsa inner
Campagnolo AC-H bottom bracket
Ritchey V.3 Pro SPD pedals
Campagnolo Record C-9 chain
Campagnolo Mk. II cassette 13-26
Lyle Strickland (Spin-Lite) hand-built wheels (Velocity hubs on Velocity Synergy/Synergy OCR 36-hole rims)
Continental Ultra-Gatorskin 28mm tires

Other regular bits:
Busch & Muller Ixon LED headlight
Crane brass bell Nitto R bottle cages w/Kleen Kanteen bottles
Topeak Road Master Blaster pump, painted to match the frame

Other occasional bits:
Brooks D-shaped saddlebag
OR Carradice Pendle custom saddlebag
OR Carradice Nelson Longflap custom saddlebag
Nitto saddlebag quick-release support
Velo Orange smooth polished 37mm fenders
Velo Orange Constructeur rear rack (never fit successfully, however)

Hope this is of interest.

Regards,

Karl
