new origin 8 frame

anyone know what pricing of this frameset is, or if its available yet, looks to be pretty beefy with fender mounts, could be a good city/commuter bike...

I've used Origin8 components and I like them.

Good value for the money.

As for what this frameset looks like built up, I don't know.

Am I looking at it wrong? What's with the upward-pointing track ends?

That colour really brings out the ugly welds.

upward facing track ends mean that the brake pads stay aligned with the rims as the chain wears. If they're straight, you have to continually readjust.

Its basic black and the frame aesthetics do leave a lot to be desired.

A pity, considering Origin8 makes pretty good stuff.

This is one frame that brings out all the detractors on here!

i feel like it's good to see an alu design that doesn't look like a pista concept.

still, this one is a little offensive and reminds me of a pk ripper standing on its head.

feels bad, man.
