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)

Bareknuckle and Gorilla Hattara, made by the same people ?

http://www.hubjub.co.uk/gorilla/hattara.htm - gorilla frame

http://www.hubjub.co.uk/eai/eaibk.htm - eai frame

Are these bikes made by the same people? It looks like the came from the same country at the very least. On the site I linked to there is only a 25 difference. The fork lugs look identical. Ditto on the drop outs, rear brake stay, the tubing ect. The bareknuckle might be a bit bigger tubing but not sure, perhaps making it more similar to the Zengang Gorilla frame. The biggest differences appear to be the fork steering tube diameter and the clearances size for tires.

Most bikes made with that dedacciai tubeset look pretty similar because of the distinctive fork
