2010 Nagasawa Nakano Red Rainbow Flake

For 8 years I have lusted after the craftsmanship of Nagasawa track bike's. Mr Nagasawa-san truly is a master in his craft. Koichi Nakano Won an unprecedented 10 consecutive professional sprint gold medals at the world track cycling championships from 1977 to 1986. Nagasawa had been amazed by Nakano’s explosive acceleration power, a strength developed while training as a sprinter before turning to bicycle racing. Recalling that Nakano’s sprint was “the best in the world,” Nagasawa said he made a “hard frame” for Nakano to enable that sprinter’s power to be converted fully into propelling force. The frames were usually Red color. This is a little background where the signature "Nagasawa Nakano Red" began.

Thanks, yea it is an aggressive seat tube angle. A lot more weight forward to the front of the bike.
