Just got my new KOF bike from Mitch at MAP Cycles in Portland OR. It is a vintage inspired 650b bike with mostly vintage parts (post and shifters from the list) and a O/T Schmidt 20R hub and Supernova E3 triple LED light. Mitch built the frame, fork, rack and stem to my design and I supplied all the components and machined some of the bits for the frame, stem and rack. The bike will be on display at the Cirque in a few weeks, if any of you are going to make it this year check it out. If any one is interested in a custom KOF bike Mitch builds really nice stuff and is a great guy to work with.
