Hurry Up Volume




After seeing this video on Prolly's blog and getting a good laugh I realized that trick specific fixed gear frames and forks are lacking.  One company seeking to fill this void is Volume Bikes, and who better since they already make sick BMX frames. Myself and a few other Scorchers are anxiously awaiting the new Volume Cutter frame and fork supposedly coming out in February, check out the prototype photos.


Note the gussets and BMX style fork.

700c Barspin capability 

Rumor has it that the frame and fork will be sold for under $400, and have a lifetime guarantee.   How can you beat that?  The fork itself will be sold separately for around $80 to anyone who can't afford the frame and has had, or wants to avoid, a catastrophic fork failure.

when?
the stuff on the Volume site lists December, but shows a fairly normal track-style fork.
