Keirin Sentouki starts at $1390 (track geometry)
Pacifix Exclusive starts at $1490 (trick/street geometry, barspin fork)
The OCEAN frames are available in 2 models, and with custom options you can change
them quite a bit.
The Keirin Sentouki model is a Keirin geometry frame using classic proportions and
Most Keirin Sentouki frames will leave the factory with Kaisei 019 tubing, and all Kalavinka
lugs, including fork crowns, bb shells, and ends. Nagasawa fork crowns are available on request for no extra cost.
The price is $1390 plus $100 shipping to OZ, USA, CANADA, $110 to Europe/UK, and $75
to Asian countries outside of Japan.
We can paint in any colour you would like.
Choose from an aero fork with sloping crown, or a classic round tube fork with a flat top
crown. Choose to have the fork drilled for a brake, or left undrilled.
If you want a 650c fork, rather than standard 700c size, that is a free option, and the geometry
can be adjusted to suit. Down-sloping pursuit style top tube is a free option.
You can also choose to have aero seat stays, or classic seat stays. Have the rear bridge
drilled for brakes, or left undrilled.
You can also select from 2 bottom bracket shell height options. Either keep the bb at the classic position,
or have it raised by 8mm.
You can specify your ideal seat tube and top tube lengths.
The standard spacing is 120mm, and the frames will accept 27.2mm seat posts.
If you want sparkly metal flake added, it is a free option, and many colors are available
Decals are all hologram style right now, but the next batch will be chrome,mirror finish.
As standard, 2 decals are applied to the fork tubes, but if you want a simpler look, these
can be left out.
Standard sticker kit includes 1 large down tube logo, 2 smaller logos on the forks, a head tube
sticker, seat tube sticker (paint factory), and a 'keirinsentouki'
kanji sticker on each side of the top tube.
Standard headset included is the Hatta Swan Super Deluxe NJS model. This is included
in the $1390 price. This can be changed out for a Shimano Dura Ace NJS sealed headset for
no extra charge.
Bottom bracket set is not included.
Options are .... cheap sealed sugino $30, Hatta R9400 njs $75, Dura Ace octalink njs $69.
You can choose to have no bb included.
The 2nd model is the street custom Pacifix Exclusive model.
This frame has a straight fork, and modified head tube angle, that allows barspin tricks using
a 700c wheel. This does effect the steering feel too.
The rear lower part of the seat tube is indented to allow a very tight clearance from the seat tube
surface to the rear tyre surface.
The seat stays are off set from the top of the seat tube. The rear bridge and fork crown both allow
more clearance for high profile street clincher tyres.
Metal flake is standard, and so is a Shimano Dura Ace NJS, or Hatta Swan NJS headset.
Price is $1490 plus $100 shipping to OZ, USA, CANADA, $110 to Europe/UK, and $75
to Asian countries outside of Japan.
**Only $750 is required as down payment to have a frame built!
Waiting time is currently 7 weeks for building, 3 weeks for paint and 4-5 days shipping.
