Give us some history on the frame.
Where was it made? Are you the original owner?
How about more details?
I am impressed.

Couldn't agree more. I love when a seatpost/seatube matches.

Great looking bike!

Super nice bike. And you don't see too many steel bikes with power meters.

Clean ride. Race/team bike? Or just one in the stable?

2018 team bike. It's a custom nakagawa I've shown before. Raced at top level here in Japan.
Great feeling to out climb, out sprint, break away and win on a lugged steel frame with 1" fork when everyone else is on full carbon aero machines ....

Lugged Columbus spirit/spirit for track tubes (stiff!) frame
Columbus max 1" fork (stiffer!)
Custom Steelman 120mm -8deg stem 31.8 (Ti bolt kit) still weighs 249g !!!!!
Deda Newton shallow 42 (will change to Deda presa)
King nts - (changed to record thread less)
Campy carbon top cap
2015+ super record groupset
Power 2 max campagnolo powermeter 170x53/39t
Wr compositi seat post
Bontrager serano rxl saddle
Speedplay zero pedals, Ti spindles etc...
Fizik tape
SRAM 1190 11-28 cassette
Record chain
Fulcrum racing speed 35xlr
Bolt on skewers
Schwalbe one pro 22 tires



Weighs 7660g as shown with p2m

With superleggero 120mm stem and regular Ti super record 5arm cranks is 7359

With my Columbus minimal custom finished its at 7010g

Pretty light for fully lugged steel frame / fork / stem which can lose weight again at the saddle/seatpost/brakes and still be fully functional.

I hope you like it !!

I have owned a lot of high end steel bikes and have seen plenty of cool bikes made from all materials on this forum. This one is near or at the top of the list in every way.

Wow, under 17lbs! That's pretty impressive for a lugged steel bike with Max fork even with carbon wheels.
