    Pride Cycles. Anyone have one?

    As the title says I am looking to hear from anyone who owns a Pride. I am looking at them for a 29er and I just wanted to see what anyone else has.

    Think the guy is an ex-Litespeed guy. They have a facebook page with lots of pics of their stuff.

    He used to run Litespeed's machine shop according to there website. Unfortunately, I refuse to join farce book and thus have no access. Hopefully someone here actually owns a Pride and can answer me with their thoughts.

    They should be shpping me a semi-custom 26inch/Paragon slider wheeled frame this monday. Ill have the bike together the day I get the frame. Ill post pics and a review. If it ships on monday this will be the first custom builder of anything to deliver when promised.

    Pride cycles has been a plesure to deal with so far. They responded quickly to my calls and emails. There price point is unbeatable for a US made ti frame. Carvers Chineese stuff costs more and takes longer.

    Pride Nightmare

    Several of us are dealing with Nightmare situations with Pride. See this link. I'd be curious to see if you get what you ordered. They have ripped me and several others off!

    I have read the thread and it does have me a little worried. But my frame is not late and the specs they sent me were correct. They have been g reat to deal with. All I can do is see how this turns out. Until I saw that thread I had only read good things about Pride. All businesses have a few bad ones slip through the door. I hope that this turns out good for you guys.

    I try not to deal with anyone Litespeed-related. They are the ones, after all, who in part put out utter pieces of **** that shouldn't have left the factory.

    I am waiting on the pro-custom guys to come in and say stolen money and lies are part of the dues one has to pay, that are worth it, in order to get a custom frame.
