Hi Cyclofiend,

I built this lugged and silver-brazed frame in October of 2003 from stainless steel Columbus Metax tubing. I recently modified it by replacing the original vertical dropouts with track ends. Now it's a single-speed! I used Harris Cyclery track hubs as the basis for the wheels. The hubs are laced three-cross to Mavic CXP-33 rims with DT Swiss competition spokes in the front and Sapim Laser spokes in the rear. Harris also supplied the Sugino RD track crank and bottom bracket. Gearing is currently 39 x 17 (60 inches). I found a silver threadless stem - a Nitto UI-5GX. Not so easy to do nowadays because everything is black!
