    4 posts up is some tomasso. that's not an origin 8, just posted because it's a good deal and in the neighborhood of this origin 8 frame

    the pile of **** is a motobecane, and I guarantee a good sight better than the origin 8 frame. this is based off the fact that the bit of experience i've had with origin 8 stuff has been full of lols at the terrible quality

    the mbk rides great, makes for a nice commuter and much more practical than any other bike for $280 that i can think of.

    4130 is fine, Surly makes all there stuff out of it, and they've been doing it for a while.

    Welds are completely cosmetic.

    Everything comes from china/asia.

    I wouldn't buy it, but it's comparable to every other cheap "track" bike.

    This is what I was thinking. So the quality of this bicycle is comparable to BD bikes and the sub 500 dollar brand name bikes? Seems about right.

    thanks.

    lol okay, i was all like it's not that bad.

    but i'd still pass on the origin 8 frame. their pedals are garbage, but they come in colors so they sell like crazy

    The thing is a cheap rip off of other frames. Welds look more like barbie toys-r-us bikes for $39.95.

    My buddy has one of these, he really likes it and others that have ridden it really likes it... and if I recall, it can't do bar spins cause the wheel still hits it... and I think the only major complaint is that the bottom bracket sits pretty low...
