Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

The bike Eddie is sitting on looks to have lower cable guides built into the downtube very similar to an 87-89 GT Pro Freestyle Tour.

Rear brake mounted under the chain stays?

They need to sell the forks separately as well!!!

Wilkerson Airlines used to sell their WAL Forks "seperately to fit most other 'lesser' frames".

I'd love to mount up those forks to an 88 Vertigo ST that I own!

Just curious,, did Knight actually sell any of those 20" Proformer at all ? How many of them were built ? According to their website, their last update on the Proformer retro project was at 8th April 2011 last year ! Furthermore, I haven't seen any of them build up so far .

Maybe we can ask Eddie if there will be some loaner forks being made. I can inquire it as well saying some people would be interested in just the fork....

Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

Eddie was my hero as a kid, I am really excited to see that he still has the same passion for BMX/Freestyle as he did way back then. That alone has me thinking about purchasing one. I also agree with few of the other comments before mine. There is a market for this still, look at all the other "old school" companies trying to make something we all can respect. Old school or new school. Eddie Fiola designed something to meet today's standards with a style we all recognize and love. Plus MADE IN USA!

Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

I am very excited to launch this because it has been a dream of mine. I love all the feedback from everyone and hope that this appeals to riders and collectors. We are working very hard to finalize the details that will be announced here on the museum.  Some of the quick details are:

Made in Santa Ana, CA
100% Chromoly
Only 250 Limited Editions will be made
Frame/Fork/Bar Set in Eddie Yellow
Dimensions and angles are being finalized next week.
Production will start shortly after.

Several other products are also being developed.

I will keep everyone updated as it becomes available.

Never said he wasn't any of those things or disagreed with them. It's also irrelevant to bike sales.

George Foreman was a great boxer but I never purchased one of his grills, just saying. I hope I am wrong...

Not many will buy it....kind of neat I guess. Not trying to act negative but let's be serious here....he's a pioneer for sure but 30 years later?  I could be wrong...

Just to be clear, you are wrong smile
Eddie has and continues to be an importnat ambassador to the sport. His legendary status is only rivaled by his tremendous kindness and his humbleness. He is a mensch among men. In my opinion he deserves nothing but our respect, and I for one will support this. Also, these frames will be USA made, and that is something also worth celebrating.

yo clown, Maybe if George Foreman was a chef or selling boxing gloves instead I can see your point.  BUT..This is an Eddie frickin Fiola bike with a big ass EF with a crown dangling off the side of it.  KING baby.

Good luck man.  It would be great to get something you have thought up put into production.

I have to ask, did you come  ut to Australia in the late 80's or early 90's, not doing demos and such but just cruising/holidaying?

The only reason I didnt like Eddie Fiola in the day because the girl I liked had his picture in her locker.
Pro freestyle rider and hair like Steve Perry in the 80s.

Re: EDDIE FIOLA "EF" BRAND BIKE MADE BY TRUE TORCH COMING SOON. VERY RAD!

This is great news. Bike looks nice too! I'm not diggin the head tube badge logo though...it seems 90's. How about the EF logo in your avatar Eddie? It seems understated and timeless, kind of like its endorser. cool
