    Well, a 52cm Bareknuckle came up on my local craigslist, so I swooped it:





    This build will keep me occupied while I send my Yamaguchi school road frame to paint and acquire my equipment to start frame building. I also picked it up, because a lady in the neighborhood next to mine races at the ADT Velodrome and said she would let me carpool with her. Awesome!

    I got the deal of the century on a Rotor track group and extras for three hundred and sixty bucks:





    And here's a shot of it slightly built up:

    Snap did you buy that rotor group from lafixed? I've had my eye on it

    I laced some kinlins to extralite chinese hubs for my road wheels and the set ended up weighing in at 1300 grams, so I think I'm going with kinlins again. This track wheelset should be 1450 grams at the most.

    Weird normally people have to go down a size, because the top tubes on the bk's are longer. My ideal top tube length is 54 so the 52cm should fit perfect I'll probably have to run my seatpost high though because I'm a 54 squared.

    You know the 52 bk has a 54 or 55 seattube right?

    my 54cm is 55ctc, 57.5/58 ctt. So I imagine the seat tube is 53ctc on the 52...the other factor is that the standover is always higher than normal because of the BB height.

    Actually it's not. It's a 52 cm seatube center of bb to center of tt: I did my research before I purchased it:

    I meant center to top. 52cm frames dont usually have a 31.5 standover.
  11.  
    Ya but center to top of seattube doesn't matter because this bike has a "chimney"( term used by 'guchi) on the seattube for the seat post binder. Why would center to top on a chimneyed bike effect standover? Standover would be effected by seattube angle and bb height since the seattube is the only tube true to size.
