    “United Beacon V1”

    The Good:

    With the integrated seat post it takes away the weight of the seat clamp and half the seat post, shortish chain stay and its kinda light.

    The Bad:

    The paint is shit and rubs away easily.

    Overall Review:

    Lightish, not too bad geo and you save about 50 bucks because you don't needa buy a seat post or clamp.

    “Best frame”

    The Good:

    - Short back end - Good weight - Very responsive geometry - Good looking

    The Bad:

    - Built in seat post (has cut-line for removal though)

    Overall Review:

    Best frame I've ridden, never had any issues with it, once the the built in post is gone its top notch, so light and responsive, whips and bars so easily.

    “united beacon”

    The Good:

    Built in post is good so you don't have the untidy part of having a seat clamp.. cool design.. a strong frame.. strongest united i rode..

    The Bad:

    you obv have a built in post so you can't move your seat up and down when you go for long trips and want to sit down..

    Overall Review:

    pretty good could be beter with a slightly short back end.. i found the back end is way to long..
