I have to see, the brakes are part of the charm for me. Of course most track bikes look better without brakes but this has a sort of attraction for me. Either way, it's a stunning bike!

Not usually a fan of modern rims on classic keirin frames, but somehow this bike owns the look... even that super-deep carbon front. Sick bike!

Beautiful ride, but why don't you have hoods on your levers? And why are they so low? That's not comfortable looking at all.

MincedFeet says:

I don't think those levers accept hoods. Also, I think the only reason he has the brakes on a bike designed for no brakes is the strict (?) japanese authoritay.

dresearch says:

MincedFeet got it right, I only have it on there to comply with the Japan laws; a $700+ fine just isn't worth it. The brakes are completely functional, but I don't need them. It's mounted where it's most functional while riding in the drops, any higher and it's virtually impossible to grab the levers without effort, and it's out of the way from all of my normal handle positions.

did you have to drill the fork your front break? or is there a set like your rear so you wouldn't have to drill a hole for the front

dresearch says:

Dia-Compe makes a track specific version for the BRS-101 front caliper that clamps onto the fork. The track version has three different clamp styles for circle, oval and aero shaped forks.

nice build man! hows the 55-18 ratio compared to the 55-17? i'm thinking of lighting up my ratio for the street since i have a fix/fix rear dura ace hub.

dresearch says:

It's somewhat lighter, but in all honesty, everyone's different. I used to ride super light gearing, 47x17 and 53x19 for over a year, but I've been trying to build strength since I know what kind of cadence I can maintain. Just play around with your gearing until you find what's optimal for you.
