yup at first i was very excited to get a "non bikesdirect" ride at a low price, and was ready to recommend it to any who ask because competition is good.
They did tell me that the track frames come from a different builder but that dosent ease my concern.
so for anyone who stumbled across this thread, and are intrested in an augusta just think about it.
Im pretty sure they are gonna double check all the frames from now on.
Ive made a pretty big stink through emails and phone calls.
anyways, it really ended up better for me anyway
the felt brougham frame is a lot better in stiffness and ride quality - and all the decals are just stickers, all of them
