KHS Aero Comp Disc

Got this frame off a friend of a friend a while back because I've always loved these frames. Was gonna keep it on ice for a while until I had some parts. But I was at a local bike shop here in Seattle that was selling these Velocity 130mm iso disc wheels with a Campagnolo freehub. And the build idea hit me... Riser bar, thumb shifter, Campy 10, disc bike! I had always loved the Veloce FB (Flat Bar) 10 Speed shifters and these were an excuse to get them. So I bought the wheels which meant I had to spend a stupid amount of money to get parts as well as pay a frame builder to braze disc tabs and cable guides on the frame. Then get it all powder coated. It was a lot more than I wanted to spend but in the end it was worth it. I really dig the way it came out. And I doubt you will ever see anything like it.

More Info:
The True Temper Velo tubing is wild! The top tube goes from skinny to flat. The down tube is tear dropped. And obviously the seat tube has the aero curve with the tear drop. They have always used wild tubing and it really makes their frames stand out. I love old KHS frames for these reasons. All build photos are unedited 35mm taken with a Contax T3.

Enough for 28s. You don’t need anything more than that on the street.
