    is EAI Bare Knuckle frame a good buy?

    I am looking to upgrade in a few months and was thinking about getting a Bare Knuckle frame. I was wondering if its a good frame for the $700? or what are other frames you would recommend?

    Way overpriced imo. Best bang for buck, I'd suggest Wabi or Bob Jackson.

    I own a bareknuckle....its a niceframe, but not worth the price. I bought mine years ago when the cost was more reasonable. Nowadays, there are plenty of other TIG welded steel track frames at much more reasonable prices.

    What are you "upgrading" from anyways?

    If you do impregnate the 3Rensho, will the babies be hatched or are they going to be like mammals?

    Probably the former, with the frame being the egg holding my beautiful children.

    When they are ready to hatch, the frame will split open, revealing the newly hatched 3Rensho/PA frames.

    Not trying to be an ass, but I will anyway. If you're riding on the streets, get a bike for the streets. If you ever get serious about the track, you'll want a different bike at that point anyway. Obviously do whatever you want with your money, but I wouldn't go on about "legit track geometry" unless you want to get flamed.

    looks way better w/out the trispoke. Those handlebars still piss me off every time I see them, though.

    The bike is too big for him so he's letting it go. $650 is a good deal for all of that. The bars look a lot better IRL too.

    In that case, get an aero aluminum frame.

    Agreed. Those bars are stupid.
