    Koga Kimera

    I am entertaining the idea of buying a new track frame and have come across a brand new Koga Kimera in my size... has anyone actually ridden one?

    Haven't been able to find any reviews on them online.

    This will be a sprint/kilo bike mainly (with a few scratch and points races for good measure).

    Thanks!

    JMR, It's a rare, high-end frame. If you like it and it's within your budget, go for it.

    Yeah, I'd heard that, as well.

    I think some early models were certainly re-badged BTs.




    Then they issued this one.

    Good prices from the former Aussie importer of these ATM. Half price as they've stopped importing them.

    Yeah, they are the ones I was looking at Brawlo.

    Not cheap still, but probably a very good deal.

    I guess I am wondering if it is going to be $3k well spent, or spend my money elsewhere (bars, wheels, etc) for better gain on the Teschner Track Pro that I currently ride. I was sort of hoping someone on here was going to say that they had ridden one and it blew their mind!

    For my money, I think it comes down to how strong you are and how strong you plan to become. If you're a big strong sprinter type, then they would be a good buy. But if you're much less than that, then I think the difference between these and your Teschner or perhaps the current Dolan DF3 is minimal, and then there's money left over to sink into some other go fast bits.

    I would love one of these and would buy one, but they're a little small for me. It would be fairly unique as there wouldn't be too many around.
