Corey Martinez Signature United Beacon  Frame. What with the evolution and constant progression of Corey’s riding, parts that he puts his name to have to do the same. The Beacon features a couple of changes from the original, as well as new graphics the most notable change is the removal of the built in pivotal seat post back to a more traditional seat tube. The V2 still features the same tube set, higher stand over height, elevated stays that help with grind clearance (especially luc-e grinds) and tiny dropouts that still work with pegs and a United hubguard when run slammed. Cosmetic touches such as engraved lines in headtube & bb, name stamped gussets finish the frame off.

(Due to the laid back 69° seat tube angle on this frame, the top tube measurement will be longer than what is stated. For example, the 21" frame will ride and ‘feel’ like a 21" TT / 71° ST frame but the measurement from the centre of the head tube to the centre of the seat tube when measured along the top tube is actually longer. This is because the wheel base on this frame remains the same as found on a 21" TT / 71° ST frame, but the 69° ST angle just gives a longer top tube measurement, meaning you have the same wheel base and bike feel, but more room in the front end due to the longer top tube)
