    Spicer Steel vs. KHS Flite 100

    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.

    here's the links:

    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.

    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.
