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)

...i think you missed the mark, the frame as in the bike, not the weapon you put on your fist to break people.

I'd rather have any of the off the peg track bikes than a brass knuckle.

edit: if I won one I'd sell it

That one done up with risers isnt too bad. I dunno, I'm not a huge fan. Why not use a Kilo TT frame? put the 125 dollars you save on frames into parts people will like. I think most people would be happier with a kilo frame than a brass knuckle, and if you do get a brassnuckle frameset please replace that aluminum fork. ew.

Paint.

That's one of the better looking brassknuckles I've seen out there. Looks good with track drops I think.
