dave halls new track frame

Here are some pictures of the latest nicola cycles neo-track frame. the front triangle is lugged columbus tubing. the bb shell has no sockets for the chainstays in order to accommodate the high BB. Dave required no rear brakes like most track frames, so this let us be creative with the seatstay bridge. We also added a hand made chainstay gusset to insure lateral stiffness. As you can see the seatstays are bent, (most Nicola seatstays are) in order to absorb road imperfections. this coupled with the short rear gives an unparalleled ride. Enjoy.....Mike G.

I was looking at the BB and wondering what was up with the missing chainstay sockets. Looks sweet though. Good work, I'm jealous.

the bb is a Henry james mountain shell. its got no chain stay lugs so you can use any type of stays at any angle.
