locked cog's review of eightinch stuff

ive been keeping a close eye on eighthinch, just waiting for a review on some of their stuff. why was i so sketched out? this stuff was cheap- i didnt know whether it was origin 8 cheap or amazing f*cking deal cheap. thanks the lockedcog, i can finally get those cranks and wheels. locckedcog reviewed the v.2 scrambler frameset, the julian wheelset, cog and lockring, and crankset:

great notes include:

v.2 frame
-frame clears 32's no problem, can potentially fit 35's
-stock fork (not pictured) can barspin a 23
-small frame parts are solid (headset, seat clamp, and seatpost- usually doesnt come with other frames from other companies)
