    Dolan DF4 vs Koga Kimera

    So I have pretty much decided that I deserve a new track bike (frameset anyway)... pretty much have it down to 2 choices, Dolan DF4 or NOS Koga Kimera.

    What is everyone's thoughts? GO.

    Ehhh, no not really.

    It maybe drops 1mm or 2mm over the course of a few weeks? Nothing crazy. Seems to be a problem with ALL aero seatposts tbh.

    I'm not sure, maybe. It's pretty small. I added some carbon paste and tightened it down a bit more to see what's up.
