    New question here. Sette @ 2010 Interbike...

    ... I'm not seeing Sette on any of the exhibitor lists at all I was really hoping to take a look at the Razzo in person. Does anyone know otherwise? Thanks

    It's way too expensive for a company like that to go to the show... That's one of the ways they keep their prices low

    They are usually present at some DH races.

    If you wanna check out the Razzo post your location or check out your area subforum and see if any in the area has one.

    An online company that I've been working with to release a 29er soon told me that when they went to Interbike about 4 years ago, a moderate size booth was $200K for the week end...

    Does no one in this forum understand that Sette is a not a real bike company? Of course they do not have a booth at Interbike, they do not have a company. These are catalog frames built by Astro for Price Point.

    whats your point?

    Not really sure you can call most bike companies "real" by your definition. Most bikes are made by just a handful of manufacturers. For instance Kinesis makes bikes for Diamondback, Felt Bicycles, GT Bicycles, Schwinn, Jamis, K2, Raleigh, Trek, , Kona Motobecane USA, Dawes USA, Cycles Mercier, and Windsor America.

    So what makes Sette less of a real bike company? Because they are sold online...and in stores. Because there frames are not original designs?

    First of all take a deep breath and relax. You sound like an enraged school teacher from the 1920's.

    I'd rather them not spend money on booths so the savings go directly to their customers.

    Hi Matt,

    Interbike is really set up to connect manufacturers and distributers with retailers. Sette uses a direct sales model which doesn't really apply there, so there is no value in them spending thousands of dollars on a booth. At best, the only thing they would get out of it is some press, but that is better served by just sending bikes to mags and websites.

    Thanks for all the responses. I've got my eye on the Razzo for a future build and was hoping to take it for a spin to see what size frame suit me best. I'm 5'11 with a 31 inch inseam and am just between the 18 or the 20 inch frame, ahrg. Thanks again and hopefully I'll be posting the new ride here shortly

    I'm 5'10" and would go with the 18" For myself the flick-ability is paramount
    when working through rock gardens and tight spaces (switchbacks / back to back
    drops) with sexy curves..

    Is that a 31 inch bike inseam or pants inseam ? If its bike the 18 inch frame is probably the best fit . Compare effective top tube lengths to your current ride also .

    Not quite. The Ace for instance has some modifications on the rear suspension system so they don't have to pay royalties for using Horst Link as in the original Astro. On the other hand I don't really know what's Price Point/Sette level of engineering on the frames.
