    Korean Keirin bike








    Is there anybody who rides korean kerin bikes, like "CELLO", "COREX"? It's my corex kerin bike. Full spec click this plz.

    In korea, there are two kerin HAND-MADE frame maker "CELLO", "COREX". "CELLO" is YOUNG CYCLE's brand name and "COREX" is JIN CYCLE's brad name.

    Almost for twenty years, they've made kerin, track, road bike frames.

    that bike looks tiny, but might look good if you got rid of that horrible tt pad, put the brake on the front, and taped the bars..

    just saying what about 50 people will say.

    there are a few on here. Do a search, there are two or three threads on it already. In fact, bonechilling is in Korea right now and can probably answer some questions for you.

    That's a cool frame, thanks for posting. I would like to see more detail shots of the frame itself.

    Dude! Shows what YOU know. Keirin brand bikes USED to be made in Japan in the same factory as the Keirin brand beer, but rising labor forced production to Taiwan and Korea.

    The better quality Keirin brand bikes are now made in Korea, while the really junky ones, the ones with old fashioned loose ball bearings and quill stems and that obsolete kinda junk are all made in Taiwan.

    You used to be able to see korean keirin (kyeong ryun) in Seoul at the olympic velodrome.
    They moved it to the speedom in Gwangmyeong.
    They also have races in Busan.

    Here's a link with pics from my last visit. Korean Keirin PART 2 - lots of photos

    If you don't know that Korea has its own version of Keirin then I suppose its easy to make these kind of mistakes. It would be more accurate to call it Korean Kyeong Lyun since that's what Koreans call it. But that'll never catch on so... I can has arrospok?

    KAY-rin!




    not like americans or europeans are about to say it like that though. i mean, i've heard announcers say "kir-in" during track championship events on youtube.




    just like everyone says su-JEE-no, not su-GHEE-no.
