I have a question though, it's msrp is about $800, but it seems high when you compare it to a bike like the cinder cone which comes with deore/deore lx d/r's, marz susp. fork, hayes hyd. brakes, and deore shifters all for $850. The frame material can't drive the raw mat'l cost up too much more even though you are most likely buying alot less cro-mo vs. aluminum, I would assume the design that goes into each frame is equivalent (not including f.s.), I would assume the welding process is the same, and the bottom bracket isn't eccentric. So you have a cro-mo frame w/ disc tabs and a nice tensioning design, no outstanding componentry, no crazy suspension, no crazy brakes, no shifters or d/r's, but a nice rigid ss'er.
What drives your msrp? Is it supply/demand and since SS is becoming popular you can ask such a price or is the frame designed and built differently than the other bikes? Are you building a limited quantity?
This isn't a dig at you or Kona because I like my Bear Dee-lux and from what I've seen this is basically on par with all other mass manufacturers, just wondering.
We're still finishing up the product spec and pricing on those two models. It appears that there's a misprint on our webpage, the Stab Supreme is not adjustable from 8" to 9". I'll have that fixed.caspar said:500usd diff. on the Stinky Supreme and the Stab Supreme ?
Component spec is identical xcept for tires and pedals !
Wasnt the Stab S. to have a 170mm fork ?
And how do you get 8-9" travel on the Stab Supreme ?
What is the diff. between the stab and Stinky Supreme ?
