Quite A Few Companies Are Doing This Now! It's To "Pass On Savings" Basically If You Don't Use Brakes, You Don't Pay Extra For Mounts You'll Never Use, But If You DO.... Tough Titties, Pay Extra!

Federal does this. Makes sense ; so many people are brakeless why use money on pointless hardware. On the otherhand , why pay extra for a part that should be including with your frame?

That would make sense, except for the fact that Frames like this aren't any cheaper than they were before.

Nothing out of the ordinary, that's why if somethings on sale I'll always ask if it comes with what it's usually suppose to come with especially when it comes to buying a new frame.

That's definitely not a warranty issue, when warranty needs to be involved it has to do with a problem with the products manufacturing process which hinders you from using it.

It's just that they either forgot to include them which isn't a big deal or they are doing the frame without mounts as the price would be cheaper just like Flybikes are doing the same thing.

Agreed, cleanest looking and works great same as Total's system and a few others, its basically exactly the same except the mount housing is external where'as Dylan's are ground smooth to the surface of the chainstays or seatstay's, much cleaner looking if going brakeless that's for sure.

This. Bmx racing is even way more expensive if your competing in pro divisions and if you dont buy the best stuff youll be trailing the pack.

They were started up by a company with no experience with bicycles at all and pretty much everyone I know that owned Amity parts hated them. They reason they don't exist anymore is not because they went bankrupt but because they decided to concentrate on making low-end bikes and overpriced mini bikes.
