Samson Rising Sun

This build stemmed from my Nagasawa commuter and then spiraled out of control into building an entirely new bike once I saw how nice the frame was. The frame is blacklisted on the keirin track as the rider had filled the frame core with polyurethane foam for a win. The tubing is oversized, super light, and because of the foam, super duper stiff. Rides incredible, the definition of butter on pavement. All parts hand polished down to the spokes!

Samson Red Flake 57cm

Handlebars/Stem:
