The need to pull together as a community is strong within New York City, at its heart is the pride of living in one of the greatest cities in the world. The NYC cycling community is huge, at its heart is a shop in Brooklyn called King Kog. It recently formed a cyclocross team with a partner in Seth Rosko, who built a slew of frames for their riders, including this one for local photographer / artist, JP Bevins.
Seth is somewhat of an institution within the NY bike scene, being heavily involved in the skate and punk scene before attending the United Bicycle Institute in 1997. He cut his teeth at the legendary Brooklyn Machine Works and now builds frames under his own banner, Rosko Cycles. JP recently took possession of his Team King Kog race bike, shooting it outside the Brooklyn shopfront.
The Team King Kog frames are built from a mix of Columbus LIFE & Zona tubing, finished with all-American brands by Paragon Machine Works, Thomson and Salsa. The 44mm head tube accommodates a Chris King 17 headset and ENVE‘s tapered Cross Disc fork. JP will be rolling on a Stan’s No Tubes wheel set — ironically located in Big Flats, NY.
