condition: excellent
size / dimensions: 56cm

I bought as parts bike in LA from a fixed gear enthusiast and shipped home to Dallas (it was a high end build with top shelf components), original owner said was made by a frame builder in NorCal, but despite trying cannot find more on maker. I build frames myself (and enlisted the help of all my contacts), and will keep trying to find more info about the frame-maker, and share that info if I can!

Rides laser straight and had I not been building a custom frame made-to-measure for my body, I would have loved riding this frame daily. It's a light butted frame and very nicely made. The ride quality is typical of a well made butted steel frame/fork, just pleasant and lively, agile, basically ideal, though I love steel so admittedly I'm a tad biased.

Has Richard Sachs BB shell, and an interesting inverted rear brake bridge (I think the bridge is a Paragon Machine Works piece). Other frame components are pointed lugs (likely sourced from framebuildrs.com, torch/file, nova, etc.), very attractive overall with nice long scallops and brazes on the seat stays, nicely blended in track ends too.

Frame and fork are both powder-coated a light grey, really attractive, only a few scuffs here and there from shipping, normal use etc, no dents. Will look amazing with black or natural finish components. And since it's completely unbadged / no graphics, style the frame as you want, it's a blank canvas with hard and durable powder coat protecting the frame. Maybe try that sharpie graphic bomb you've been wanting to try out!

Includes:
Frame
Fork
Stronglight Headset (cups already installed)

I have nice set of MKS track pedals in natural finish, American classic polished natural finish seat post, Cinelli track stem, polished tow clips/leather straps, and other goodies if you want to build with those, can work out a package deal.
