    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.

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    i think that is a bit biased and outdated, surely in 7 years bike technology has advanced, making the integrated headset function and durability better than it was at the time that was written.

    not to mention its an article from a manufature who is loosing business because of them. If a owned a company that made plastic forks and spoons, i would tell you how bad sporks were. Yet everone knows thats half the reason you go to KFC.

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