so, after building the Antonov ( https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/356261/?offset=50#comment16068245 ), a friend of mine spotted a krabo trackbike with very nice parts fitted, c-record hubs and cranks as well as some cyberspace carbon bars for a bargain. It's made from Columbus Altec tubing and has a steel fork fitted. We splitted the costs and my friend will keep the cranks and wheelset, as I already have "enough" c-record stuff, leaving me with a frameset to build.
So far, my parts bin offers the following goodies:
last gen Record pista cranks or the older ones in either 144 or 151 bcd
3 nice wheelsets to choose from:
C-record wheelset with omega rims (classy)
campy pista rims laced to Harmony lab hubs (HHSB ??)
gipiemme track wheels (blingy)
and some bar/stem combos, I know some of them are cinelli 65s
For those who don't know Krabo , it is a framebuilder from Bochum, germany who has built bikes for e.g. Erik Zabel or Rolf Aldag. The name derivates from Günter Krautscheid and his city Bochum. Their frames are always very very good quality and nicely made. another friend owned two Krabos and I had the chance to ride them, they feel super stiff, real race machines. So naturally i have high expectations on this one.
Krabo is still building custom frames : https://www.krabo.de/krabo-rahmen/
I will collect the frame this week, so here some first low quality shot :
EDIT: corrected the link for the framebuilder
