    Why wouldn't you think that it was a frankinstien bike worx mercury? This looks vaguely like a shill post, but that bike so ugly I can't imagine anyone buying it.

    In Philadelphia Alphas are a cheap ready to ride bike that you know is fine right out of the box(unlike anything from BD). I don't know why they exist in any other city.

    $400 for that thing, and the specs doesn't have the tires or crankset listed. Kill it with fire.

    The shop owner is a wingnut for sure. I loved watching him try to sell noseless saddles. It was a good time killer on slow days.

    In that case, end the thread because the op's question was answered in the second post.

    Until then. Mayhem.

    interlude - does it say frankstein (as u say) or frankinstien (which hurts, really). Either way it's tragic.
