Sort that saddle angle man.
Will be a lot more comfortable on the wrists.

Very clean otherwise

I know saddle angle should be leveled, but I always rode comfortable this way. Since I just got this saddle, I'll adjust the angle and see whats best for me.

thanks btw!

Proper build for a classic track bike...but if only you can get a full-link chain (prob Izumi or so), it would be more awesome

Stunner.. If only I could get my hands on this frame. I have never seen it on Singapore shores before. Only came to know about it here in Pedalroom.

Thanks. I was lucky to find these at local shop. If I had more money and patients I would just get NJS frames from over seas. there are plenty on ebay.
