post 'em if you got em
first, i love the idea of "collections" threads (first of many?)
second, although i've seen these pics before, OMFG they are beautiful
third, may i say, the build choices are very well done, sweet!
fourth, do you ride these bikes? how do you choose among the track bikes? event specific?
thanks for the post and for starting this thread,
And if anyone wants to know where all the NJSP-72's went ask Grant...

laughter has no foreign accent.
The Silver Nag gets ridden at the Forest City velodrome, (a very short, steep indoor wood
track near Toronto) and I'll travel with this bike. It's the workhorse, came to me with a
slight ding in the top tube, and it's just a 'rider'. The white one was built for me, but due
to some communication issues, it's too big. So, it's a bit of a trailer queen. The pair of
blue Kalavinka frames were built for me too, by Akio Tanabe. They were built with two
NOS dura ace groups from 1988 I had sitting in their silver boxes. Right now, the pair are
still new, I haven't ridden them more than a couple of km's to shake down the build.
Not to say I won't ride them more at some point, but right now they are perfect.
What are the typical specs for the frames that do fit you properly?
this is as good as any place as any to post this link to the kalavinka website which has quite a fantabulous gallery itself, but first:
"...We are currently experiencing exceptionable demand and therefore are not accepting any new frame orders for a short while...When we restart accepting new orders we will give notice via the website. However, we are accepting only the order from the professional keirin racers now..."
click on "bikes" and then on one of the initial photos to open a huge gallery of custom kalavinka product
click on "gallery" to open a slew of cool cycling-related photos including components and construction
bike dimensions fit me perfectly. :thumbs_up:
riding it is almost as fun as remembering how it came to be...

Ignore the Rapha accent, the g.f happens to work with the Komen foundation so it's good to show a little support..:)

Mid-80s Echelon Spectra, made by Cherubim, festooned with all the milled, drilled and slotted stuff I could lay my hands on.
Justin, that gold Nag is too cool.
This is my Japanese bike.
