Hi Riley,

I just came across this post and was wondering how this bike came to be in your possession?? The reason why I ask is because I'm pretty certain this is the bike that T.J from Orange 20 bikes in Los Angeles stole from me nearly seven years ago. I understand that you have since sold it to someone else and I'd like to track the current owner to see if they would be willing to sell it back to me. This bike has a lot of sentimental value to me as I rode the hell out of it while I lived in SoCal and it took me nearly 2 and a half years to save up the money to buy all the NOS components for the build. I see that most of the stuff I originally put in (Campy NJS cranks, Campy NJS C-record pedals+cages+straps) have been replaced. That beautiful paint job and those aero seat stays make me almost 100% certain that this is the frame I purchased from Alain of SuperMakuri back in 2008.

I would appreciate any info you or its current owner could provide me with.

Best,
Marco

It's awesome. I've got 2 Makinos. I want to ask about the 172.5 cranks. I have a set of 172.5s on one bike, but I'm tall and my frame is a 58.5 c-t-t. Most track bikes on this site run short cranks. I'm always interested to see someone opt for long cranks, and obviously you know your sh#t.

Always have preferred longer cranks, allows more torque in your pedaling in addition to other scientific benefits I can't remember off the top of my head. Not that that matters to me, I just chose parts on how what I feels best to ride. 172.5s have always been my favorite length. I imagine if I was taller I would probably even up to 175.

Thanks. Photos don't do it justice. Wish the iPhone could manage to capture how rainbow/sparkly/shiny this is in person. It's a work of art.
