So lately I've been checking out spicer cycles and they got some nice deals. I've been planning on buying the KHS they have for $225 but recently noticed that they also have a standard steel Spicer track frame for $200..I was checking out the specs and I'm sure it's the same frame as the KHS. anyone agree or disagree ? If it's the same frame I wouldn't mind to save 25 bucks. :roflmao:
here's the links:

its the same frame with different decals. I have one.

sweet. I'll be saving $25. I wonder if the fork rake is the same though ?

mmmm well my fork came with khs logos on it. I am guessing the whole frameset is the same. I don't know if you have spoken to Gene Spicer on the phone yet, but he is really nice and will answer any questions. I recomend making the order by phone.

Those 2 frames are made at the same factory in Taiwan.
I know this for sure from talking shops when the Spicer
Steel first came out and from just asking Gene.

Exactly the same.
The sizes might throw you.

Get the Spicer. Gene is the man and is super nice.
The spicer is good stuff. I liked mine before it got trashed by a ford. I might get another if this iro craps out on me.

Yeah, I just received and e-mail from Gene confirming it and actually the spicer even has a fender mount in the back that's something that can always come in use. Thanks for your replies, dudes.
