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)

Brass Knuckle!?!

I kinda think i want my next frame to be aluminum.
I like the looks, and simplicity of the brass knuckle, but!
Why is there not more info on them?
Does anyone know were one can be purchased?
Whats the GEO actually like?(Bens has a chart, but all it shows is lengths, no angles! Whats the deal?)
My guess is you're gonna tell me to save my money for something better, but just thought i'd ask.

P.S. Any other recomendations would be rad. (Sub $400-500, steeper/stiffer frames)

i liked mine well enough. ugly-ass welds, bad color options, alu fork but a good price. you can order one from any shop that carries EAI.

i think it's neat that they included a bolt on solution for thieves who want your wheelset.

I'd like to see a pair of brass knuckles on the handle bars... Would look pretty chill riding down the road.

Off topic, but is production really going to be stopped on the Bareknuckle? Is the Godzilla really selling that well?

i think that is a bit biased and outdated, surely in 7 years bike technology has advanced, making the integrated headset function and durability better than it was at the time that was written.

Leader makes cheaper aluminum track frames. Quality is disputable. Search it up.
