I just got a sample and I'll post a photo when it comes back from paint.

The hubs got signed off and we'll see them and wheels in about 45 days.

What was the final decision on the BB drop? And about variable ST/HT angles for different sizes? This seems like a pretty nice frame for pursuits (not super-aggressive, but just fast enough to push for 4km).

Maybe I'll skip the custom thing and get a kogswell?

Waiting for update.

I hope the bottom bracket is high enough, my buddy keeps asking me to go up a ride that steep track in Ontario...

I hope 'we' (bikeforum members) get at least a 10-20% discount on the first batch

A lot of hoping...

138m length, 50 degree banking ... if you do manage a trip, post it on the forums. There's always one group or another of people from Toronto planning trips down to Forest. It'd be fun to have a BF meet-up there.

Will let you know. Maybe in a month or so. Need to get in at least a little shape.
Maybe I'll be sporting the new Kogswell...

Kogswell's website does have this teaser, which I noticed today:

"Another new model coming in June is our next generation fixee.

This is our fourth fixed gear model since we started in 2001. Its design was a collaborative effort done with the help of track cyclists on The Bike Forums.

The result is not surprising: steep angles, a high bottom bracket and round fork blades. Back to basics. Back to the track. The BackTrack."

New kogswell track frame

I'm gonna guess since those are the same braze-ons as earlier in the thread, its not an updated image.


Of course, I've been wrong before.

The June date disappointed me. I was hoping to have the opportunity to sell my current bike before the season and already have this one built up...

I am so sorry.

I really thought I'd have something by now.

I've been pulled away into other projects.

What a wheezer I am.
