My boy Sean ordered in this here Bare Knuckle and put it together yesterday only to find that he didn’t like the way it fit so he quickly dismantled it and put it up for sale. So far in the last two years he’s been through a KHS Flight 100, a Louis Garneau Pursuit, a Brass Knuckle, a Bottecchia conversion and now a Bare Knuckle! And those are only the track / FG bikes! Let us not forget about the BMX, MTB or Road bikes! Ha! I guess there’s something to be said for trying lots of different things until you find what you really like! Apparently I really like exclamation marks!
For sale is a 56cm EAI Bare Knuckle – Frame & Fork ONLY!
Some info on the Bare Knuckle:
The Bare Knuckle is handmade for EAI by a small shop in Venezia Italy. The tubes of the Bare Knuckle are mitered and TIG welded in Dedacciai COM 12.5 double butted cro-moly. Double butted tubing theoretically yields a stiffer bottom bracket and head tube area while keeping down the weight. Each Bare Knuckle frameset comes with an attractive 1-1/8″ lugged sloping straight blade fork up front and Columbus drop-outs in the back.
The EAI Bare Knuckle does an amazing job on and off the track. Its tight geometry and steep angles are still designed forgivingly enough for comfortable road use. They are currently being made for use with a 1 1/8″ threadless headset, a 27.2 mm seatpost and 120mm rear hubs.
While I’m at it – I might as well mention that Sean is one of my favorite dudes. He’s a great friend; loyal, friendly and funny as all hell – both when he means to be and even more so when he doesn’t mean to be. Three cheers for Killen!
