    Very sound business practices going on here.

    I might have to buy one, any idea on what price(range?) you'll be selling them for?

    I bet those are a heckuva lot better than the take-off POS I have on my Kilo now... Oh well... maybe next time.

    Velosolo chainrings are CNC'd in the UK in small batches and are really nice. We'll be stocking both 130 & 144bcd.

    Not sure on price just yet but they'll be somewhere between $1 and $1000.

    That estimate is so concise; I hope it's more toward the $1 end

    How are the quality of these scrod? More specifically toward sugino? Pictures look promising but like they say, pictures are one thing compared to handling the real deal.

    They do look really good and after speaking with Max @ Velosolo today, I'm impressed. I'll be putting one on my 722 as soon as they arrive and will report back with a review ASAP.

    Black chainrings will most likely be around $50, polished will be a few bucks more.

    Scrod,

    You don't happen to have a 21.1mm quill stem laying around some parts bins do you?

    Yeah, I tried to look around to buy a new one but they're a pain in the ass to find. My Schwinn's extension right now is like 120mm, I'm looking for something shorter (whatever you have really). Thanks for checking!

    Thanks a lot dude. I'm so impatient to ride this Kagero. I'm almost thinking about asking if you can just build it for me so I can get it riding out the box. But I forgot I'd be sitting on the top tube and pedaling with me feet. :/

    I want a retrogression frame as my main commuter. Who buys another frame when they haven't even finished building the first one? Being able to fit a 32mm tire sounds so appealing right now. :C (smiley stolen from jaytron lol)
