Vassago coming out with Cross/Commuter bike "Fisticuff".

This bike is going to kick ass. I was going to buy a cross check but this sounds too sweet. Here's what they said.

"Hi Eric,
The Fisticuff is expected this fall. Yes is has rack and fender mounts as well as disc and canti options. It can also be set up as a single speed or full geared bike. The Fisticuff will be a perfect commuter. In fact, it was conceived because we all used to ride our road bikes to the shop everyday. We needed something stronger with clearance for larger tires. Thats the Fisticuff!

I personally like the track dropouts....and the fact that SO many people have the cross check makes me want it as well. Yeah, that's my ego knockin. He emailed me back and said that it's going to come in cabby yellow and black. Going to be sweet.

I'm pretty sure the price will be nearly the same. Their 29er single speed is quite similar and costs 400. And yes, that is a prototype.
