Anyone got one and got some snaps? I love the paint job and if the handling is the same as my 2006 vertex I think it will be my next bike to build!

:)

btw how much does the frame cost in the US/Canada? (its foofing expensive here in Ireland)

They've added 5mm of HTT length for 2008, but the angles are the same.

XTR wheels, Cont Race King 2.2 (488gms each), Marta SL's. I'm running a Selle Italia Flite Ti saddle which my butt seems to have adapted to.

The SE's are usually $200 over the cost of the Vertex 70 frame so that must be in the $1000-$1100 range. They don't use the scandium tubing on the Tribal. :sad:

That seat bag better be full of helium... :D
You promised that with the Conti tires it would be super light! I will have to put back on the Maxlite 310's I guess.... Maybe when the Race Face Carbon cranks finally come out I'll be running lighter than you.
