I don't where this idea got started that some builders are KOF and others are not. Correct me if I'm wrong but if the bike has sweet lugs, nice workmanship, quality steel tubing and a little loving attention to details then it's KOF whether it's an Eisentraut, an Eisenbahn or an Eis-a-brazen'-up-a-storm. My personal aversion to some KOF bikes comes when a threadless headset is employed or the rear dropouts are made wide enough to accomadate modern 130 mm hubs. As long as you're bucking the trend enough to request steel and lugs, why insist on a ten cog rear?
