Kansai Ridley Oval

Fast Bike to compliment my Brooklyn. It is a fixed gear with dual brakes. It's my training and fast bike. I love it for any distance. Like my BMW I'm thinking about buying the same exact frame and just shelving it until this one fails on me because it is simply perfect for what I ask it to do.

Yeah, it was definitely fast. It was a blast to ride it on the Velodrome in Osaka too. It really felt at home there.

the painting is great! Is it a wet paint finish done by a professional? Or have you done it by yourself?

It was professionally done but it is just a simple gloss black.

Thanks Man... You have some real cool bikes yourself. I'm in Japan so we are supposed to ride with 2 brakes but I'm not complaining, just more ways to stop.

good looking bike! and looks like you prefer the 3t compact bend bar to the fsa one. any comments on both?

wastingaway says:

I have nothing against the FSA Compact bars. They were great, just too narrow at 40cm.

Loved your build.
Gotta agree with you. Its stiff&light, even so it still manages to be comfortable. I got no regrets that i bought this instead of the mash bolt
