    Skyhawk successor?

    Will there be a successor to the Skyhawk? I was about to order a Skyhawk but then the 18" model ran out of stock. (I'm 5'11" with 30" inseam, I know long torso...) Will the 19" model fit me as well? I want to make sure the bike fits me.

    Your inseam sounds a little too short to fit an 19.5 inch frame you would probably have to change to much shorter cranks but im sure the stem would be fine. The 18 would be a perfect fit if there was still one in stock, I cannot answer if there will be a sucessor though.

    We don't have any plans on building a bike like the SKyhawk or Sabre again.

    By the time we absorb the cost of shipping on those bikes, we are losing a little bit on every one of them we sell. On lower cost bikes like those, there isn't enough profit margin for us to build one to our standards, warehouse them, and ship them.

    Thanks,
