    Unfortunately, YT does not ship to North America, otherwise many people, including myself, would have jumped on the deal.

    They are poised to put every bike company out of business if all their bikes come so well spec'd and priced

    Its a shame they cant ship to America as thats a massive market they are missing out on. Is it a shipping logistics issue or is it to do with any patents etc?
    If they continue to offer bikes of this spec and at this price point then its going to be hard for big guys like Specialized, Trek etc to keep justifying 2-3x the price for essentially the same bike. There may be differences in suspension performance etc but its a rich than man that would spend several thousands on that difference alone.

    Based on Uk retail prices I worked it out what it would cost to buy components as follows:-

    BOS Idylle RaRe Air suspension fork 1600
    BOS Stoy shock RaRe 560
    E13 LG1 + hub wheelset with carbon and scandium rim 1000
    E13 LG1R Downhill crank 260
    chain guide 130
    Sram XO rear derailleur and shifter 270 (180 + 90)
    Avid XO Trail 440
    Renthal stem and handlebars 150 (60 + 90)
    Minion DH tyres 80 (2*40)
    SDG Fly & I-beam post 115 (70 + 45)
    E13 pedals 120
    SRAM chain 30
    grips 10

    total at UK retail approx circa 4765 (todays exchange rate $7700)...and that doesnt include the frame. Currently being sold at 3000eur or $3900.

    Ridiculous value for money. And in regards to the actual performance of the frame/suspension, Dirt reviewed it and was highly impressed saying that it is a very capable World Cup level race frame. Would love to have a go on one

    vikingboy,

    When I inquired about purchasing a bike from them in the summer, I was told that they do not ship to North America because DHL does not want to handle the large boxes anymore for overseas freight. I do not think it was an issue with patent laws because they had shipped a bike the previous year to a rider in Montreal.
