    Perp Prices

    I have been shopping around for a good intermediate FR/DH bike (age-old question) that I could build up as my skill progresses, came across the Cannondale Perp (as well as the Tranny DB, Kona Dee-lux, and Giant Glory 0). Just wanted get a round about price for a new one as well as a lightly used perp as there are none on ebay and I'm not to familiar with the mountain biking online retail stores.

    Thank for any help.

    Ride Safe,

    A 2008 Perp 3 [the base model but still with decent components] runs not much over $2K here in the US; which I think is an AMAZING deal. Never see many of 'em used since it's not that common of a bike.

    So figure around 2000-2500? Sounds good.

    Why is it that you don't see too many of these bikes? I was just so happen to be wondering that myself.

    Perp 3: $2200
    Perp 2: $3000
    Perp 1: $4000

    It really depends on where you ride as to how many Perps you see. If you have never ridden one, its a sick FR bike. Good geometry, low standover, good BB height, and adjustable travel that doesnt adjust the geo. The frames are super burly and rather light. For $3000, you get a 8 inch travel Perp frame, Sram/Avid components and a Rock Shox Totem. Thats a pretty good deal. Trust me on this, dont read the geo numbers, go ride the bike for yourself and see what you think.

    I think we'll see more and more throughout this year; between the magazine reviews, and subtle positive talk...

    Anyone find any photos of '08s out in the wild (not Euro/Interbike)?

    Cool-blue Rhythm

    I watched a few video reviews on the Perp and the bike looks like everything I've been looking for from adjustable rear suspension to the alternative cable routing. It just seems like a dream. Hopefully I can pick one of these up before the end of next semester.
