    KHS Pursuit anyone?

    So I just got my KHS pursuit frame in the mail.

    57cm - great condition, powdercoated black.

    Anyone else have one of these? I'm interested in seeing what everyone's builds look like. I've tracked a few down on Velospace and Flickr, but wanted to see what was out there in the BF world.

    Also, does anyone run 170mm cranks on these? I was thinking 165mm would be best, but I've been told 170mm has enough clearance.

    Thanks!

    If it truly is a pursuit frame then I retract what I said earlier. While mass start track geometry has a higher bb to avoid pedal strikes pursuit bikes usually have lower ones.

    It's a 700c x 700c pursuit

    I'm guessing the best way to tell would be to throw the wheelset on it and measure the clearance.... 165 is probably the safest bet.

    I honestly haven't noticed much difference in clearance between the two. 5mm has not saved me any toeverlap, and I'm fine with that.

    interesting color choice good luck with the new frame - I'll see it on the streets sooner or later

    I went with 165's on my KHS and have since replaced the GR-9's with clipless. Not much of an overlap issue now, but it gave me a whole lotta trouble at the start.





    congrats

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    mine came with 170's and besides the toe overlap they're fine.
    even with 165's there would still be toe overlap.
    pics later.

    Oh I thought we were talking about some sort of pursuit bike not just a track bike with a sloping tt. I retract my retraction

    AND YET A-****ING-GAIN

    A sloping tt(or different sized wheels)does not a pursuit bike make!

    congrats



    What size is that frame? How tall are you? This is gonna be a tad bit smaller than my current setup, but nothing that a 100mm stem can't take care of.

    Yeah, I'm leaning to the 165's. Hope to get them powdercoated neon yellow along with the seatpost and bars. Maybe this graphic incorporated on it somewhere as well...



    I'll see you around I'm sure.

    what does my face have to do with turning a functional description into one purely based on hipster style.

    Claiming everything that sort of looks like an 80's pursuit frame is a "pursuit bike" is stupid. Most pursuit frames don't look like that and plenty of things that aren't pursuit frames have.

    claiming that any misinformation or improper use of nomenclature by people who you assume to be new riders has anything to do with "hipsters" is also pretty stupid, D.

    however, i don't know much about the functional differences between, oh, let's call it "traditional track geometry" and pursuit frames. what's the diff, and what function does it serve?
    the hipster myth.

    i practice vagabondery.

    Sorry but idolizing pointless **** like downwards sloping tts and different sized wheels as "pursuit" is purely hipster style. It is bike hipsters who have driven up the prices on some of the more distinctive though outdated pursuit designs and now it's more who cause the word to be stuck on anything in the hope that some dumb hipster will buy it so he can say he has a pursuit bike.

    They purpose of a pursuit bike should be self explanatory. It's for racing pursuits. It will be designed for the requirements of that discipline(mainly aerodynamics and not turning).

    If it was the first time I had clarified it it wouldn't have been bold or big.

    that may just be the case down by you from what I hear.
    but many people around here are far too lazy to invest in pursuitish frames and the like

    it's the sloping tt, they complain of it hurting their backs.

    Doesn't seem to be too comfortable to me either. I guess we're all in pursuit of something different.
