    I'll get you pricing as soon as I can. Like I've stated a few times you guys will know as soon as I can let it out. There's one more variable left that I am working on here at the factory that factors into pricing. The last thing I want to do is announce one price and then give you a different one later. Thanks for being so paitent; its great that everyone is so interested!

    Yep, in the photo that shows the X9 brakes, XO Gold shifters, FSA SLK low-rise carbon bars, and the velo lock-on grips with gold ends. Snazzy!

    I am curious about this bike. I live in Oklahoma so need for full suspension is not really there, although this bike at the price mentioned may be the one. I am in need for a new bike for next years race season and was looking at airbourne because of the components for the price. This was my first year of riding and I did it on a specialized hardrock. I'm 6'4 and really my only concerns are how the frames compare? I am not aware of dealers in my area so I would not be able to test ride.

    I believe Airborne scrapped that project to make room for bigger and better things...

    Airborne does not have dealers. They are direct order only. But they will do everything in there power to make sure you fit. I'm 6'3" and I ride a 21" zeppelin elite or a 22" goblin.

    BigDaddyFlyer is a super helpful rep for airborne so he can answer anything you need. Cept pricing right now as that's hush hush

    Thank you for going 31.6 on the seat. I want a dropper in the worst way and the 30mm on my zeppelin makes things difficult

    You're welcome!

    That 30.0 was done by the prior PM that came before me. All of the mountainbikes I have worked on have been 31.6 for availability and ease of upgrading seatposts.

    30.0 is a dead seatpost size and very difficult to find any more.

    When can we get specs on the geometry? My local LBS was blown away by my zeppelin and I mentioned the hobgoblin and how I was excited about it and I mentioned sub 2k 29er FS and he started asking me about head angles and all sorts of geometry questions that I didn't learn about in high school.

    Pretty good sign of a killer bike if a LBS owner is rocking one.

    The webpage will be up later today with all of the info.

    Basically the geometry is almost the same as the new Goblin, so that the two ride very similar to each other. (71 degree HT and 74 degree ST angles).
