Franklin, Part 6

While I was in Spain I got a reply from Jack at Franklin Frames to my final email asking when the frame was built:

2006.  it was sold to a person last name of miller either in seattle or Philadelphia


I thanked him and asked if he knew why it had both an eccentric bottom bracket and a derailleur hanger.  He replied right away that it was probably to be able to switch between gears and single speed.  I’m not sure I buy that given the cable guide – I suspect that the original setup used a sturmey-archer hub.

I updated the as-built table.
