$1900 bucks for a hartail frame!?Hmm?,three months rent or a new bike.
A $1900 frame set that includes a $700 fork, $60 headset, and $90 stem is pretty reasonable for the performace. Broken down like that it's then comparable to a Salsa Selma at about a grand for frame only. Compared to a $3000 custom Ti frame alone, it's downright inexpensive.
I will bet that one could go really fast on that...what changes are there other than cosmetics from last year? I could see going with that over a Niner Air 9 for $799 frame only...am kind of interested in seeing it compared to the new Specialized Carbon 29er Frame...their full "Expert" trimmed bike with a fox fork and sram x9/x0/xtish stuff is $3300.
Ben,This is the Superfly SS frameset. It comes as pictured, (minus the seatpost.) The frameset is a dedicated SS, so it's a bit difficult to compare it to the Specialized carbon expert. Fisher is selling a geared version of the Superfly for 2010. It is speced with SRAM XO, Truvativ Noir carbon cranks, Scandium rimmed RXL wheels, and Avid Elixir CR brakes. This is wuite a bit up speced as compared with what you describe, and the price of $3999.99 reflects that. I still thing that's a heck of a deal for what you get. IT would be interesting to see where Specialized cut the fat out of that bike to lower the price that much. Things like Bar/stem/seatpost com to mind.
