    2012 Slayer 70 frame price !

    $2 000 and a few bucks at JensonUSA...

    God damnit. That's like even $500 more that what I would be expecting... But at least I know where to go to when I'll have the money

    I still keep my eyes open for a used frame, so I might get lucky in the future, now that I know there will be some frame only Slayer available on the market.

    Indeed....the prices for taiwanese frames for 2012 are f'n absurd! On the flip side, hopefully this means we will start to see the made in the usa sticker on more bikes soon.

    Worst is that Jenson sells a complete 2011 Slayer 30 for $1 800...

    The US/CDN dollar is near par because the US dollar is so weak, that pushes the price of imported stuff from Asia by 20-25%.

    Why don't you get the complete Slayer 30 and change out and sell what you don't need. The 2011 and 2012 frames are the same and only the components differ between the 30, 50 and 70 levels. Wayyy cheaper than building from scratch

    Well a few reasons :

    1. I don't even have the money right now for the 2011 Slayer 30 at $1899.
    2. I was seeking an used frame for around $800 (still waiting doh) and the right size frame.
    3. I already have all the parts since I'm swapping out frames. But I'll need a 142x12 rear hub.
    4. I don't ride often enough yet to justify a rush into a new bike, I'll wait when college and part-time job turn into full-time job to blow up the bank.

    And the 2012 frames have a few differences over the 2011. Not much, but enough to say it's a 2012 and not a 2011

    $1500 full-suspension frames are really rare these days.

    The Slayer got the Angular Bushing Concept pivots for 2012 so a bit of weight savings for the frame.

    Sorry, nope. Only change was adding one cable guide on the TT. It already had ABC's at the dropout.

    Nah. RMB are in BC. I'd like hem to be in QC however. At least we got Xprezo here, but they're not on the cheaper side either.
