This bike started when I won the front wheel in an eBay auction. I knew that Kogswell sold a 26" wheel version of the Gen II P/R so I ordered one.

With the exception of the frame everything was purchased new or used off the internet. I had the rear wheel built by a local one-man shop, the rest I did myself.

Tracks arrow straight no matter what and the 1.75" tires ride great! This is my do it all bike.
