    Did Mountain Cycle change their mind about frame only?

    Nope. I stand by everything I said and always will.

    BUT....

    Our way of doing business in terms of component specification did and that in turn opened up other options in terms of the way we can sell our products.

    That's an upside of sourcing 98% of our components in the US.

    I was getting all excited. The carbon frame is looking pretty good.

    You'll eventually change your mind.

    eh?

    One more time.

    You can buy a:

    1. Frame kit

    and then

    2. As many components, as few components or none at all, as you like.

    Ok, got it. Nice to see you using X-fusion shocks. I put one on my classic SA and it's a great shock.

    Do the frame kits come with a seat clamp?

    Yep. All frames come with clamp.

    And yea, the X-Fusion's are a great deal from where we are. They are all tuned to match the suspension's curve.

    Right on!

    You may want to put the seat clamp in the info section also. You could call it the custom MC seat clamp. It makes people think their getting some extra bling.

    What's with the posts not posting in the right order? It makes it hard to follow things.

    All this has done is accelerate the decision that needs to be made.......San An or Zen? Head says Zen, heart says San An.

    The counter on frames remaining is a nice touch, just to induce another sense of panic.

    The Sun Ringle wheel sets sure look nice. I here nice things about the X-Fusion, do people think the upgrade to one of the other shocks is warranted? From what I hear about the X-Fusion an upgrade probably is not something thats needed.

    Well, the way I'm looking at the specs, the San An is roughly a replacement for the SA DHS and DNA.
    The Zen II is more of a Fury replacement.
    You can buy an "almost" frame only, but not quite. Key components are user choose-able now.
    Thank you MC.
    And thank you for adding a seat post collar with quick release to the San Andreas 2.0.
