Singlespeed & Fixed Gear - traitor frames?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I've searched everywhere and can only find out a little about these frames. I have a chance to buy a cheap traitor luggernaut brand new. The frame is lugged and has nice drop outs. Does anyone have one of these?

Everything is relative.
300 for frame and fork. same price as the kilo lugged.

From what their website (http://www.traitorcycles.com/Bikes_LuggernautSS.cfm) says, it seems pretty nice. Columbus tubing, lugged, drilled for brakes, can fit wide tires. I'd buy a frameset for 300, sure.

You'd be a fool not to.

Only thing about the luggernaut is the fork. You can't really tell from pics on the website but it's this weird segmented/tig welded/lugged thing that looks like a steel abortion. My shop carries them and every time I pass by them I cringe.

Yeah, the fork is fugly. It looks like one from a bike 100 years ago

I think the Katana fork looks really cool.

Idk man, I think the rest of the bike looks super classy and elegant and then the fork looks clunky and unwieldy. On a different bike it might look better but with the frame it just seems off.
okay hopefully Tuesday I will be picking this up! Do you guys have any recomendations for a headset, and stem? Sorry for all these questions. I'm pretty stoked. Ill post pictures!
