Yard Sale - Oscar

This is a track frame we built for Nahbs back in 2012 when that show was in Denver. It was also built to commemorate the now-opened velodrome at Erie, CO, and the bike itself has been residing at University Bikes in Boulder. They'd like their space back and I'd like to get some money for it so let's see if we can find a new home for this sexy beast.

The design is by HampCo, Team 7-Eleven paint by Russ at Air Art, construction by Martin Tweedy. Here are the numbers:

Seat tube, c-c: 55cm
Top tube: 55cm
Head tube: 166mm
BB drop: 60mm
Chainstays: 395mm+
The saddle in the photos is at about 745mm, stem is NJS Nitto ahead (for women's racing!), bars are Nitto NJS, Nitto NJS post, Dura Ace cranks and BB, White Industries hubs, Aliante saddle, pedals not included but we have them here... I'd like to get $3500 for the whole package but I'll knock off $500 if you don't want the (brand new) clincher wheels. You're welcome to make an offer on this and I'll certainly consider all offers made. If you're near Boulder and would like to test ride this bike let me know or talk to Lester or Doug at U-Bikes and I'm sure a test ride will be no problem. "Look Ma, no brakes!"

Travelissimo

I'll never make it as a professional photographer but I'm starting to enjoy shooting the bikes that come through here - I'll get better, I promise. And I know I shouldn't shoot in direct sunlight - any other tips?
