'Cause it is an "old" model. Maybe '03 or '04 and now the '05's should be hitting the stores soon.

Different from what happens in other countries (like Mexico) in the USA they try to sell out the older models and get only the newer models in the store's stock.

In Mexico, for example, the stores keep the old price and put a higher price on the new stuff. This actually socks. And it's a bad selling strategy and too it's not rare to see old RS Indy's, 4" double crowns or Manitous SX and Zoke BAM's around 200 bucks. WTF??

For you to make a comparison... I just saw a KHS FR1500 for around $3100 bucks when in the USA is only around $2300. Same with shocks (if you find them). An MX Comp w/ETA '04 is around $380 bucks... while in USA you can get it for some 100 bucks less.

Sometimes I feel like robbing a bank..... but usually the bank steals from me.


Sorry if I went a bit off topic.
