    So, I get back to work today and find my new frame sitting in the corner. I will have to wait to build it till tonight. All my parts are sitting at home. Anyway, here she is.



    Took the stickers off already.


    Tried to get the color but I am by no means a photographer.

    Build list:

    Chrome lugged tange steel fork
    Tange head set
    Nitto Dynamic stem
    Nitto RB-021 bars
    Silca bar tape
    Nitto Dynamic seat post
    Soma Okami saddle
    Sugino RD2 crankset with 103BB

    Iv been using 9sp chains on 3/32" drivetrains for awhile without a problem so ill stick with it for now.

    I work in a shop and bought this through a distributor. I bought it through BTI International.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I had a pake frame for about three weeks. They are pretty nice for the price. ride is pretty smooth and the handling is a good mixture of track and road. lots of fun.

    The purple is great.

    No, the frame is drilled for a fork and the lugged fork that came with this set is also drilled. This will be my second Pake. I was able to get my forst one under 20 lbs with deep v's. Im a little interested in seeing how light this one comes out to. I loved the way it felt. By far the best bang for the buck frame iv ever owned.

    Iv ridden tubulars for a little bit now and the ride quality is so much nicer than that of clinchers. I do not flat to often. (knock on wood) I am prepared to deal with a flat. I have spare tubular tires and a bit of extra glue. Iv got it down pretty well so swapping out a tire to get me home should not be a big deal. Only time will tell if it becomes to much of a hassle.

    So to answer your question, yes, I will be ridding these on the road.

    How so?
    This post is a natural product. Slight variations in spelling and grammar enhance its individual character and beauty and are in no way to be considered flaws or defects.

    Exactly how much was the frameset? Do you plan on selling the purple fork?

    I found them to be smoother, more predictable handling, and they feel faster. To me they feel batter planted to the road.

    I bought the frameset through a distributor where I work so I paid wholesale. As for selling the fork, I might. I want to assemble the bike with the chrome fork and see if I like it first.

    Well, most importantly I'm building up a the new steel Langster. As far as parts go, I'm using all these as well:

    Tange head set
    Nitto Dynamic stem
    Nitto RB-021 bars
    Nitto Dynamic seat post
    Sugino RD2 crankset with 103BB
    MKS track pedals
    Dura-Ace cog and lockring

    Instead of the Soma Okami, I'm going for the Regal. They look almost identical, but the Okami is about half the price of the Regal. Do you know any of the major differences?
    Also, I'm using Mavic cxp-33's w/formula hubs (for now) and Conti gator skins. Pretty flippin close. The cranks and wheelset is coming off my current ride, but I'll upgrade those in the near future.

    I'll post pictures in a few weeks when its all done.

    I guess the funniest part about this whole thing is most of the parts im using came of a steel langster. I got one when they first came out and traded it for a pinarello pista. I really liked the langster but thought the pinarello was a much better bike. I did not rip the guy off because I let him know the quality of the pinarello before trading him so dont get mad at me for that.

    I ran nitto cromo track drops instead though.

    I had a red and chrome one.

    Here is what it looked like when I had it.


    As for the Regal/Okami debate. I ran the Okami because it was cheaper.

    As you wish. It still needs some help. The wheelset is being cleaned right now awaiting new tublars, it didnt come with a saddle or post and im looking for some old cinelli track drops and a new stem with a campy aero post and a turbo.
