Oh. My. God.
Definitely, although it's shame the only stock color now looks so dreadful compared to the sweet red/white off PB or the Gulf racing inspired one from the vid.I want this bike! But, would have to give up getting a Banshee Rune V2 at cost ($585 w/out shock) to replace my current AM rig. Wish I could have both (the V2 and Shan), can only build one up. This rig actually is one of the only HT's out there that look apealing to me and can see myself riding something like this. Thanks for posting, dig it!
on PB it seemed like this bike was going to be a pretty steep price.
MSRP 649.00 €, roughly $850Price on the steep side for no-name steel. Quality of tubing makes a lot of difference for steel, IMHO. YMMV.
Craftmanship is very nice, though. A nice frame overall.
MSRP 649.00 €, roughly $850
In comparison, 2013 Transition TransAM is $650, and I imagine both are in the league of fit, finish, and tubing of an On-One 456 EVO that you can buy for under $300.
But it's definitely the best looking 26er AMHT that I've seen, especially with the new limited edition colors available on their website. But if I'm spending over $800 on a 26er frame, it's definitely going to be a Chromag. :thumbsup:
Which 26er XL doesn't look weird?i totally agree, i'd go chromag at that price. it does have nice lines, but the larger sizes look weird, the xl looks ridiculous
Here's some clearance shots with Panaracer CG 2.35 tires.This bike's replaceable dropouts are a nice selling feature over the Chromag. Those guys don't really seem to be on board with the one gear thing.
I'd like a good look at it's tire clearance. You can fit a moto tire in a Stylus.
