    Good Bye Super Pista, Hello EAI Bareknuckle

    So I sold my Super Pista Frame as it was a tad bit small for my tastes. So now I have some cash in hand looking for a new frameset. I really like the Super Pista and might just go with the same frame properly fitted, but i've also been looking into Masi Frames like the Fixed Ultimate or perhaps the Pista Dalmine (although just want a frame not a complete build).

    Can anyone recommend some other frames in or around the $600-700 range?


    I'm trying to use most of the components from my previous build but would be down to sell them if need be:


    Nitto Seat Post
    San Marco Seat
    Deda Pista drops
    Thompson Elite Stem
    Nitto ADB-X Alloy Track Handlebars

    man, a tad more than I wanted to spend but what a beautiful frame. I completely glossed over it when looking at the Masi site. I'd be more afraid to leave this locked up then I was with the Bianchi. This certainly makes the short list, thanks.

    Now go hunt down what you really wish you had instead of the super pista, a celeste concept.

    tempting however I enjoy the option of a front brake as I have no health insurance. Plus how could I tell my bike apart from all the other Pista Concepts in Brooklyn?

    I say go NJS! But thats just me. But realistically I would say it would be determined on your riding style and function

    I love those Soma frames. The Rush is also really good-looking and affordable.

    dodici?[/QUOTE]

    i was really looking into the dodici special frame but the fork isn't drilled for a brake, thus made it less of an option.

    B43 Velocity Wheelset w/ All City Hubs
    Sell your boat anchor wheels and get something more reasonable. Why bother with a nice frame when each wheel weighs more than it?
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    when i bought my friend's concept it came with a super pista fork instead (he traded with someone) which was actually really cool....the frame is going to be for actual track riding (albeit only 1nce a month) but i definitely will be riding it around on roads.

    also, another super pista in the right size isn't a bad idea...just get the opposite color for kicks

    Wabi or Traitor? Both have nice steel. Wabi offers custom paint. I ordered a Bob Jackson and the wait is killing me.

    ooo yah traitor ringleaders are nice. i have one.


    nice dropouts. sick headbadge ;p
    the new frames are even nicer than this one (last year). even nicer welding, interesting seatpost collar...



    plus they were super nice. talked to one of them over the phone about bikes, bothered him with questions a ton and was super cool.
    my frame i won off a charity auction. they donated the frame to the charity to sell. got a really good deal on the frame and needed a fork so bought from them.

    no im not a shill lol...

    oh and there is Brother cycles....Viking...
