    2008 Scalpel pricing

    I just checked out the new catalog yesterday and was really surprised at the pricing. For a similarly speced bike, the Scalpel 1 is over $1000 more than the carbon Rush 2.

    I know it's new and cool and all - but over $1000 more for this frame?

    Anybody know why this is the case?

    Probably a few reasons:

    made in USA frame as previously noted
    the flexing chainstays/seatstays and link are more expensive to produce than a simple aluminum swingarm
    Its new, cool and people will pay extra for that, supply and demand folks.

    I am hoping for a team deal as we have quite a few riders interested.
