Here's my Kogswell in progress...at the moment, Ritchey post/stem/bars/headset, Campy BB and Ergos, Stronglight crankset w/Shimano Ultegra SPD, Tektro long-reach DP brakes, Swift saddle and misc other stuff (the wheels are placeholders at the moment). More coming as soon as I get the chance...

what are you doing about the rear spacing? are you spacing out a road hub or are you using a mt. hub?
I thought the "Derailleur" frame had 130mm spacing? (nm)B2

It's spaced for 130. I don't have a cassette on the wheel yet, but both 105 and Ultegra hubs fit just fine...

Superb. I just wish framebuilders in the UK would wake up and offer us this sort of thing. And before you say it... yes, I have asked - and been told no!

you can get pretty reasonably priced lugged steel frames (even custom lugs and tube sets) from condor cycles in london - i'm pretty sure they have adds in all the british cycling mags. i was very close to ordering a steel lugged track frameset from them last time i was in the UK.

they aren't nearly as cheap as the kogswell though - which seem to be quite a bargain!

Very nice! Is the rear brake cable internally routed?BowWow

Also, have you thought about removing spacers and going with a 0 degree or maybe +5 degree stem? Don't get me wrong, it looks good as it is!

Yes...Andy M-S

Yep, internal routing for the cable (you just run the housing all the way through--there's a channel inside the TT that handles that).

As for the spacer issue, I thought about it, but I prefer the spacers to an upsloping stem. I don't know why, except that I grew up in the bike boom. Right now, I'm at 2.5cm worth of spacers...that may change over time. This is my first bike with a threadless headset, and I want to be careful before I cut too much.

... looking forward to seeing your completed project and ride reports.

Be the bike.
