    kogswell model g frames?

    about two weeks ago i wrecked my frame and just picked one of these up on ebay
    i did a thread search and couldnt find much useful information or feedback from people that own one
    i like having the ability to set it up as a commuter maybe even light touring frame but beyond that i dont know much about it

    does anybody here own one? what do you think, likes dislikes?

    Matthew Grimm, the person behind Kogswell posts here, as, well, "Kogswell". As far as I can tell, they are sturdy solid frames that you can use for a wide range of applications, and is yes, ideally suited for a commuter or a light tourer. A good choice.

    i currently have the hots for one but think i am going to wait until a) they make a 56cm model and b) i have some money saved up.

    for me it is perfect--all the benefits of a road/touring frame (geometry, eyelets) with track ends providing a more sensible way to manage chain tension.

    check out the Kogswell owner's group.

    they seem like excellent, sensible, practical and affordable commuters and tourers.

    Wow.

    It's so nice of you all to say such kind things about the Model G and Kogswell.

    Thanks a lot.

    We sweat the design details, we do our best to make serve customers well, and we're all dedicated S/FG cyclists who know and love this little segment of the bicycle world.

    People have been telling me for years to come over here and participate. I'm glad I have.

    And whoever said nice things about the KOG (owners group) is exactly right. That group was started and is run by a collection of hard cores; the kind of wrench, ride, rinse and repeat serious cyclist that's fun to associate with.

    matthew, what is the standover height like on a 58cm G? I am really considering one, but the 58 just seems big to me.

    There's one on a very popular auction site right now.
