Pavlos KNE vintage track bike
This is one of the NOS vintage track frames of our latest drop all build up and Pavlos made such a great bike out of it. Combining Pavlos own stock parts and some from our vintage collection at the shop we assembled a bike full of character and vintage track vibe.
We enjoyed so much this build but most of all is the fact that this one stays in Athens. Imported from Italy, made to be bought by cycling clubs and/or athletes of the time these frames have the greatest geo in track history. They were made between 88-92 possibly at the Benotto factory (not sure) – they feature steep front end, long head tube, steep seattube angle and short chainstays. They are super-responsive and so much fun to ride today on the streets.
Just lean and dont turn the bars!
