Saw some plain track frames labelled as EAI track frames in American Cyclery, SF. I wonder if these are really EAI or are the elusive Nitto frames?

They have no logos, one colour paint and they only had a few different sizes. Pretty tight looking. One was definitely plain grey and around 55/56cm.

Just thought I'd pass that along just in case.

Sadly they don't have them on their website yet.

There is a shop in Portland, Oregon called Bike Central that sells all three bikes (Nitto, Gan Well Pro, and Nagasawa). All bikes are NJS approved if that matters. i believe their website is: it doesn't have photos of the frames, but you can contact them and get more info. they have a bunch of track stuff and are the ones that keep the friday night track events going at the velodrome. they are a good place, if not a bit expensive sometimes. they can also order an amazing amount of stuff.


Did you get a chance to get pics?

EAI did/does ? have Nitto keirin frames. They were Tange tubed, lugged and had the bb shell with the NJS logo. And, they were silver.

The Bare Knuckle is a different frameset.
