183rd Street Frameset (completed build; lots of big pictures)

So I know some of you guys think its “hipster” to take pictures of your bike and post it, but I wanted to show off this particular frameset because it’s fairly new, and I love it!! It’s called 183rd street frame and fork. When I originally set out picking a frame there wasn’t very much information about this frameset; i.e. specs, pictures, etc. None the less here I am with the frameset, and I hope I can make it easier for the next person looking for a great frameset buy. It’s a full Chromoly welded track frameset, drilled for brakes and the frame has seat tube water bottle braze-ons. The frame price is in $300s, depending on where you get one. As I just finished the build I haven’t put very many miles on it (I have about 7 right now hahaha), but I can say that it rides great so far! The quality is perfect, I tried to nit-pick, but have yet to find anything wrong, its flawless.

Bike Build Components:
Velocity Deep V Rims
Formula Hubs
Surgio XD Cranks
Surgio Chain Ring (46t)
Surgio 103 bb
Brewtal cog (16t)
Shram PC-1 chain
MKS Sylvan pedals
Race Face Cadence Handlebars
Easton EA30 Stem
Cane Creek S-3 Headset

Try to fix that saddle soon.


Let me guess..you wear black on the outside because black is how you feel on the inside?

haha thanks guys, this is my first time with this type of bike... so I'm still learning, i.e. the handlebar situation... I have been working on the seating position; I'll try lowering it and flattening it next.

Thanks for the comments and tips!

diggin the all black. Agreed though about the saddle. Personal preference: get better straps for your clips. Fabric ones suck, especially with single gate clips.
Cushy living situation or not, if youve got the money to spend, might as well get a nice bike.

all I could think while looking at that bike was that the saddle must be bad to sit on with an angle like that. Other than that looks fine. but get a black chain and chainring and pedals.

yeah, yeah, bike's great. That brick & stonework is NOYCE! Gravel driveway FTW. Excellent choice of pachysandra for groundcover. Liquid backyard and a chill gazebo. I can see right into yout house in that one shot. You have matching warrior statues?!?! I nominate your house for the next BBQ.
