Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Bare Knuckle serial #?

Does anyone know where the serial number is? Is there one? All I see is the frame size on the BB shell. . .

I'd say mid-range.
How about that?

I think that's so they know which batch to recall when the welds fail though...

I think soma rushes use a different tubing. the bare knuckle is made with dedacciai com 12.5 double butted. They may not be nagasawa, but I think they're pretty solid. I like them more than my cheap IRO, and I like my cheap IRO. I don't have enough money not to.

i dont love it, until a nice small kerin frame becomes available it will do. i fear the welds might break, i just dont trust it.
