    What is Origin 8 thinking?

    Crawler has been the stuff of legend with few pictures on web (not their web site). Hoped for a frame but they want to sell complete bike. OK, so we wait to find out from LBS that Origin 8 brought fewer than 20 to the country.

    Origin 8, you missed the opportunity to be the leader in affordable frames for the home mechanic looking to build their own bike. Let us know when you are ready to make more bikes than NAHBS.

    To much demand of complete bikes to offer up frames, and they make more money selling completes im sure. I hope we see framesets once supply catches up as I'd still like to buy one for summer use, but not holding my breath.

    Guess I got lucky. Heard from my LBS today that my Crawler shipped and should be here next week. According to their Facebook page they still have 20" models, but the next run of 18" models won't be available until May.
