    and it is named the Tues 2.0
    Good looking bike, price point is insane.
    Basically you get a great build-kit and a free frame.
    Supposed to just rip it up as well.
    Be interesting to see how this goes.

    They actually say it is THE best DH bike currently available which is very good for YT but pretty damning for the other manufacturers who charge considerably more, which is putting it mildly in some cases for what by definition are inferior offerings!

    Getting to be pretty hard to ignore this company's bikes, period. I'm in the US, so warranty and shipping back and forth are things of concern. But man....the price points are insane. Their leverage ratio curve graphs look amazing, and they seem to get solid reviews, albeit few. I'm thinking that if I may eventually get something that they offer, but just have to hope cost stays as low as it currently is, over time. Direct sales is wild!

    Last year they sold over 500 bikes in just one day. It's going to go through the roof, if you can order worldwide I think...

    $3800! amazing price for a build with a bos shocks and bos forks. Seriously tempted... Im in the market for a new dh bike.

    Would getting the shocks/forks serviced here in Cali be an issue?

    daisycutter,
    I think you must be looking at the regular Tues 2.0. The limited edition Tues comes with the Bos suspension, e13 wheels and a whole host of other upgrades.

    FTFY

    Looks like a pretty good deal. Mixed mid-high end build for mid-mid price, saving the purchaser the trouble of scrounging for parts and getting everything together on their own.

    About $2k less than a solid high-high end build using a proven frame.

    Anyone know what it's supposed to weigh?

    If its patent (Special-Ed / Horst-FSR) then Canada should be good.
    Will have to give them a shout and see if us up in the Great White North will be supported....

    I had emailed them about Canada before the Limited Edition was released and was told no. However, I did see someone at Bromont this summer with last years Limited Edition and YT shipped it to him.
    When I asked YT about it they said it was because it was a limited edition bike. Never received a clear answer concerning this year.

    Isn't that pretty much exactly the same frame as a Specialized Status? I saw one million of them at WP this past season, and that's what it reminds me of. I actually rented on on the last day of the season cause my back wheel crapped out, and it rode like a POS. Not saying this one does, but dang if that doesn't look like a major rip off of Spez!!

    No shipping to Canada confirmed.

    Just received the e-mail.

    bummer....

    michael

    as for a status rip-off - nah, has a resemblance, but when you look a bit deeper quite a bit different. Then again, design looks like it is settling down to vertical w rocker or horizontal w swing link with the biggest difference in the math as opposed to looks....

    what you guys need to do is find a nice friendly european who would be happy and willing to ship one over to you,

    but i would be asking myself if they have sorted out the snapping issues on the tues frame, the reason they changed the frame design this year was partly to do with the snapping chainstays of last years model.

    as for bos suspension, i run it on both my bikes, it's a great product, probably the best fork set up ive used, but dealing with bos if things go wrong is a nightmare, you can pretty much forget it, they dont reply to emails, or if your one of the lucky ones that does then it will take a few week or months before that reply comes. then theyll probably tell you to send the item back to france then tell you they dont have the parts in to fix them, or charge a ridiculouse price if they do,
