Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer?

Unknown Bike Co.

Anyone heard of these people? I can't find a geo chart, but the bike sort of appeals to me.

Unknown is known more for their fgfs frames I think these are the first of their non-fgfs, so there isn't much info on them yet. If anything just email them and ask.

Unknown Bike Co has been around for a while and has received a lot of crap for ripping off other companies' product designs. There was a story of them totally copying a chainring design a while back that got them into some hot water.

That frame doesn't look too shabby but if I wanted to ride a Leader, I'd just buy a Leader.

ciy grounds just had it on sale yesterday for $175. Call them up, I bet they have the geo.
It's not a 735, the tubeset is completely different.
Get a Leader and don't buy UNKWN because they may have copied something... pot calling kettle black.

Looks like, but it's not, obviously...

I was more or less trying to find out about the company in general. Scrod answered that.

It seems they had really sketchy beginnings (like Leader) but it looks as though they may be trying to turn it around (also like Leader).

I hope you're joking, cause if not, you must be that guy that painted and decaled a 725 like a Bianchi Pista Concept and thought no one would be the wiser.

Geo is what you need to look at,crappy welds are still welds.It may n ot be pretty<but it will still be a solid ride.

Oh,6000 series or 7000 series is still uncomfortable for daily riding. just be happy you have a bike.
