    traitor frames?

    I've searched everywhere and can only find out a little about these frames. I have a chance to buy a cheap traitor luggernaut brand new. The frame is lugged and has nice drop outs. Does anyone have one of these?

    Not too many, but I plan for more. **UPDATE** too many!

    From what their website says, it seems pretty nice. Columbus tubing, lugged, drilled for brakes, can fit wide tires. I'd buy a frameset for 300, sure.

    You'd be a fool not to.

    Only thing about the luggernaut is the fork. You can't really tell from pics on the website but it's this weird segmented/tig welded/lugged thing that looks like a steel abortion. My shop carries them and every time I pass by them I cringe.

    I think the Katana fork looks really cool.

    Idk man, I think the rest of the bike looks super classy and elegant and then the fork looks clunky and unwieldy. On a different bike it might look better but with the frame it just seems off.
