OK girls and boys, the frame of reference here the Grubee GT2A which we know is made of aluminum. The picture below is a race bike built by someone who knows of what he speaks and I think his build on this frame speaks for itself......
Nashmoto is the guy who built this bike and he knows aluminum better than KC know's his wife......if Brian Nash tells me and also shows me how soft this aluminum frame is and is worried of it's strength, I just thought I'd pass on the info and fore warning of such.
If you don't get it, try riding it hard and do your double back flips and get back to us on how it's holding up......comprende?
I love aluminum frames most of all, but only if they are built right out of the strongest heat treated aluminum! 6061 T-10 is as strong as steel.....the frames that Grubee makes and sells are more comparable to soft thin walled lead......not heat treated aerospace quality aluminum.
Not capping on the bike or build here....it looks great!
Hey Scotto thanks for you concern.. But Your arrogant approach is what became note worthy.. comprende?
Misuse of any object will lead to undesirable results.. Pushing things ignorantly and extraordinarily will lead to malfunction.. One would even argue a motorized bicycle isn't a sufficient means of transportation within and on city roads..
Using the Grubee skyhawk aluminum bike frame improperly would result in damage.. For example, Using the Grubee skyhawk aluminum frame as a race bike would be negatively characterized by its appropriateness or suitability.. Also incorrect component usage for the given function would greatly compound damage to a bike frame..
Using the frame as a bicycle accompanied with use of a small motor is reliable for 30mph road travel.. The aluminum skyhawk frame does withstand casual riding for those looking to explore the city streets.. For example, I have rode my Grubee skyhawk frame mercilessly for a few years to contend I am unworried of it's strength..
In conclusion I will profess that given the options available for a motorized bike frame the Grubee skyhawk frame fits the bill functionally well.. The in frame gas tank conceals its motorized function.. The frame allows the option of utilizing better components for a custom build.. In addition, mounts correctly for the grubee motors which are a joy for commuting to the gas station for beer.. I have found that these cheap Chinese products do serve reliably if used properly for its intended function.. While racing, crashing, curb checking, smashing, over exerting, over motorizing, over arrogantly approaching things does cause damage..
I guess Scotto.. To say shortly ... I have rode my aluminum frame for sometime now and these things you speak of are not apparent in justification .. It makes me scratch my head in wonder what the heck are you doing and with what tools are you doing it..
