Probably because that's a Simplex dropout and the high schooler at the LBS didn't know what to do.

Samson Kierin NJS Track Bike - $1200 (Rosewood)





"The Samson is a 2004 frame, it is a 55x56cm.

Fork/Headset:
Samson/Hatta Swan Super Deluxe

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Hatta Swan/Sugino 75

Pedals:
Candy 3

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
16t DuraAce/48t F5 Basketweave/KMC Stainless

Handlebars/Stem:
Nitto B123aa wrapped in Cinelli Mike Giant tape/ Nitto Pearl 120

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
DA HB-7600/Hoshi spokes/Archetype/Gatorskin

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
DA HB-7600/Hoshi spokes/Archetype/Gatorskin

The wheels are hand built, and are all but bombproof.

It is complete except seatpost and saddle. I can throw a saddle and seatpost on it, but they likely won't be super fancy.

*Warning, this frame is not drilled for brakes! It is a real track frame. There are companies that make clamp on brake mounts, but otherwise this is brakeless!*

If you want a legit track bike to maximize your street cred, this is a pretty solid bet. Sure, it doesn't say Cinelli on the made-in-Taiwan hydroformed downtube, but that is because this is a handbuilt double butted steel track bike by Tetsuro Harada.

Steel is real, yo."

Milwaukee Cream City Track - $725 (Rosewood)



"Before I get into details about the bike, Milwaukee bikes are built right here in the USofA by Waterford in Wisconsin, the same Waterford bikes that makes, well, Waterford, Gunnar, the Schwinn Paramount, and Milwaukee. The bike has a hand made lugged fork.

The Cream City is a little bit of a hodge podge, It is a 2008ish, 53X54cm. It currently has the Chris King HS, Nitto Pearl 120 stem and NittoAA straight bars cut to 22". The wheelset is H+S Archetypes laced to Formula hubs wrapped in ThickSlicks. The bike doesn't come with a BB, but I can add one for a few bucks. It comes with an AllCity Crankset, seat clamp, but no saddle or seatpost. Again, I may be able to add those for a few bucks.

I raced this bike at MonsterTrackNYC in 2015. It has seen some ****, but it is a fantastic bike. Just in case you were curious, this frame goes for $899 new without the hand made Waterford fork, so, it is a pretty darned swell deal considering the some ~$700 worth of speedy bits bolted on.

You should def. pick this up. Ignore that post about the Samson. That guy doesn't even want to really sell that bike, anyway.

*btw, the picture shows H+S Aeros, it now has H+S Archetypes like I said*"

looks nice. I am going by tomorrow to see if the bike is back out. its one of those semi-regular garage sales. some quick searching shows there was the crisscross, crosscut, and crosspoint. maybe all the same frame but with different components? tru-temper?

These are great riding bikes. They were Consumer Bullitin's bike of the year, I think, 3 years running. I miss mine.

Old Bridgestone

I just picked this up for forty bucks (all photos by seller):



It's an old Bridgestone, I'm thinking `70s. Hi-ten "Technart" frame...? First time I've heard of that. It looks like something I read about where the lugs are actually cast around the frame tubes. Steel wheels, Suntour Honor derailleur, nothing special, really. But those lugs look cool - like somebody forgot to file down to the shorelines. Here are some details:


I've never seen a wheel nut like this (in red, above). It almost looks meant for a passenger footrest, but there isn't one on the other side.

This is like a Japanese U08, with cotterless crank. Does anyone here know the model? Or year?

I've looked all over the web with no luck. I'm going to build it into another townie - replace that clunky steel derailleur with a Shimano 600 Arabesque I just picked up, new alloy wheels (CR18s), and all the usual upright cockpit stuff. Should make a nice cruiser/conversation starter.

If I remember correctly (which is not always the case) that protuberant wheel fixing nut was supposed to protect the rear derr. in case the bike fell over.

go back to main forums page at the top where you introduced yourself, do the same thing by saying hello to the newbies and you are good to go.

I ride with a guy who drives a Prius. I asked him what that piece was hanging there. He opened the hatch, reached in and pulled out a caster. He put the caster on the shaft and then used it to slide the bike into the back of his car on it's side. Not sure if that was it's intended purpose, but it worked for him.
