    Upset Motobecane DS bikes rebuild kits for full suspension bikes

    I feel I'm getting ripped off. I emailed thier customer support asking for the build kit.

    They emailed me back this:

    Hello,

    We do have rebuild kits for Motobecane DS bikes, let me know which one you need.

    main pivot kit is $50

    deluxe rebuild kit is $150

    Thanks,
    Chris


    Call me crazy... maybe i'm alone on this one, but 150 bucks for a few bolts, handful of sealed bearings and a couple spacers for 150 bucks?? the rebuild kit seems like it about half the retail of one of these frames. Seems fishy to me

    It's a rip off. New full suspension frames on nashbar for $100. Just get the bearings of eBay, or buy a better frame.

    I can't find that on Nashbar. Are they still there?
