Great site. I 'd like to have my bike posted, and I hope these pics
are alright- I know they were taken indoors, so if they're very much a
problem, I can re-take them outdoors. If these are ok, though, here's
the blurb I'd like:
"This is my new-to-me vintage Davidson track bike. Davidson, I hear,
is an English custom frame builder, and judging by the half-cm sizing
(54.5cm top tube and seat tube), I'd imagine it is definitely a custom.
I got it from someone in Washington state, who got it from Jennie
Reed's father. Jennie was a world track champion and record holder
(200 meter sprint in under 12 seconds, I've read). It's a gem to ride.
Smooth as can be and responsive like no other fix I've ever ridden.
I'm going to be using it as my all-purpose bike, and going to keep it
brakeless. That's how it was designed, and I'd rather not deface it.
I'm running at present a 50/15, but am considering kicking that down to
a 50/18 just so I have less trouble stopping in an emergency and so I
can manage the bridges here in NYC.
Here are the specs:
~ 54.5cm top tube (c-c)
~ 54.5cm seat tube (c-c)
~ 130mm and 110mm stems
~ 165mm crank (151 BCD)
~ 50T chainring
~ 15T cog
~ Campy Record components (!!)
~ American Classic seatpost
~ Mavic Reflex w/ Conti Sprinter 250 - rear wheel
~ Macic GL 330 rim - front wheel "
Thanks so much, and I look forward to hearing back form you if all is
well, and seeing my bike up there!
