You own many KHS track bikes!

Thanks for shedding light on the model year for my own, I see the difference that you have described between 1993 and 1998 on Google.

Are you knowledgeable on the history of the aluminum Aero Track? I'm having mine restored but don't know anything about it; I would to be able give people its story when they ask.

Hey,don’t check this often anymore(you know adult life) also need to update some of these pictures and add my last bike I acquired
But yea unfortunately I don’t,I emailed KHS a handful of times and only once they replied when I asked them if they will reproduce something similar to that style and they said they are not in the track racing anymore.
It’s a mysterious mass produced frame to say the least.

whats the effective top tube length on these frames? that headtube is just so god damn small for a 57. i'm guessing 57 is the seattube and it fits more like a tt of 55...???
