<< Also there's a KOF 57cm Chris Chance on Boston CL. http://boston.craigslist.org/sob/bik/945637272.html >>

I have to make the point that this is not a KOF frame.

Why? It's welded.

That is decidedly not KOF, despite it's builder being retired, etc.

Chris did make delightful traditional brazed lugged frames (see CR web site) but remove the decals and this bike could be any modern maker...

(I realize there could be the start of a huge thread beginning with "Yes, but....." Let's not go there; you get it, don't you?)
