    So here are the new Sette bikes

    Got the news feed on facebook regarding the new Sette website. They have a bunch of new HT's but I'm not seeing any FS bikes on their site.

    Here are a few new HT Sette bikes already available on Price Point.

    They got the new carbon CX bike they were always talking about, and some others. Looks like they got videos for all the bikes. I dont see frames like the Reken, or any DJ stuff. There is still no Aluminum HT bike. I think they need to get some cheaper bikes, along with there high end ones.

    They are definitely taking a different approach with graphics and paint. It looks nice, but kind of flashy. The prices seem pretty high for Sette though. Does anyone know if these are the only bikes, or will there be others coming out?

    The prices are high. I'm sure they will drop a bit eventually.

    29er FS would be interesting. Right now I'm eyeing the new Anthem 29 FS. If Sette comes out with something good it will get added to the list.

    hmmm.... the Sette Serum ISM, and the non ISM cost the same, yet the ISM one has a bit nicer components.

    Also, why such a big price increase for the serum frame? it's the same frame as the Phantom, with more paint, and a different weave.

    carbon only for mountain? damn. the serum race should come down in price quite nicely. it'll be very nice if it crosses over to the $1000-$1500 range.

    This ..................the Scott Scale XT level is ,$2,500.00 MSRP , would be easy to get for $2,250.00 . IMHO P.P. is going to have to adjust the pricing structure downward to compete .

    They must have bee having too many drinks when they came up with the pricing. People looking to spend $4000 on a bike will not be looking at Sette. Even if the bike spec'd accordingly.

    I believed the Razzo was $1600 when it was first introduced. They quickly dropped it to $1200.

    The components on my PHANTOM would fit and look good on the new frame..
    I'd pay $699.98 for the Sette Serum Elite Carbon Frameset if it had V-brake bosses...

    What is a seat mast anyway?

    The top of the line Serum ISM offers a seat mast instead of seat post.
    What is it? Can someone post a tech. drawings.
    Why it must be cut to exact size?

    a seat mast..is the post is built in to the frame, and there is a part that holds your seat that goes over that tube. allowing you to still adjust it to your height, but if your to short for it you have to cut the mast, because there is a limited are of adjustment.

    It makes the frame stiffer for better pedaling efficiency. It might also be lighter. Unfortunately it makes the ride rougher, at least for your butt. This is why Look uses an elastomer in the seat mast of their 986.

    And i believe the mast makes the frame stiffer, but the cradle that slips over it are heavy in most cases.. the lightest one i know of is hand made at 80g

    Just got an email from Sette regarding new bikes.

    He said there are plans to introduce a new 29er and new FS bikes in the fall.

    Hmmm, that's to long to wait and see if there's a carobon HT 29er or maybe a short travel FS 29er on the way. I guess I'll go with Razzo for now and really, at $200, it won't break the bank!

    Well if you put it that way Interbike is only a month away, I guess I can wait until after then to see if Sette has some new frames.

    I don't know why I was thinking Fall was so far away..........oh yeah, cause it's 108 friggin degrees outside right now

    I wonder if on the new Sette Serum with the ISM, you can cut it about 1in. too short then cut a slot into it, put a seatpost collar on it and run a super short seatpost (250mm or less)?

    That is a really bad idea. Aside from the fact that the seat mast is probably ovalized and won't accept a round post, modifying a carbon frame is not a good idea. You would be better off buying the lower Serum model that has a standard seatpost.

    I thought it was shaped mast with a circular hole...
    anyways, it's useless for everyone except the most elite TT riders

    Not really sure why it's such a bad idea.
    I would be willing to bet that the factory where they buy the frames from just cuts the ISM off of the frame. It also just uses some generic stubby, which I'd also bet is just round.

    Fuji actually says you can do this on their SLM LTD. you think the new serum is that much more fragile than a fuji?

    I guess the seatpost might put some stress on the frame, that it's not designed for.

    Oh, by the way I'm not trying to start an argument just posting my thoughts.

    EDIT: oh and the reason I don't want the lower model, is because of the parts. Not a huge fan of the wheels, and mainly the crappy brakes.
