    What a terrible name for a bike frame. aren't brass knuckles supposed to be heavy? Shouldn't a Brassknuckle be made out of Brass and not aluminum?

    I like the name and the frame. I didn't think the welds looked bad for a Taiwanese aluminum frame.

    On the contrary, brassknuckle is a badass name. Other good names would have been "Crowbar" or "Bat With A Nail In It" (suggested for the Bianchi San Jose).

    For the price, I don't really see anything wrong with it. I'm sure it rides well. I prefer sock full o' quarters.

    Read the description for the brassknuckle, they talk about deals they're giving for frames+ parts, and that if you plan on ordering a frame and then parts later to let them know and they'll give you the same deal when you order the parts. Definetely seems like a cool group of guys or gals working there.

    You seriously expect them to smooth the welds for $300 a frame?

    Quarters? What are you, made of money? "Sock full of Doorknobs" is much more intimidating.

    All they're supplying is the sock; you can fill it with whatever floats your boat.

    Crowbar is a much better name for a steel frame. An aluminum crowbar would totally suck.

    mines on order already about three of my friends from the bike biz have all given me there accounts of the frame and say the welds are nicer than the bareknuckle...I have been told the glare in the pictures make it kinda hard to tell really....

    I will post extensive reviews and pics when mine comes in...

    also the frame looks alot like a duratec sprint...
    I am dyslexic so bear with my posts.... [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]
