    Sounds too weird to be true. And it doesn't look that long at pics.

    Those are top tube lengths, not seat tube lengths.

    Looks like it was just a mistake, bike's geo is published at TR website and it's ETT that's 24.5" long, not seattube.
    I'm riding V1.5 Covert at the moment and I really love it, but there are moments when I wish I had a bit more rear travel and slacker head angle. Now I'm looking foward to changing it for new one. Bike looks just amazing, and I'm sure it rides even better.
    Waiting for price to be announced.

    That's a very hefty premium over the aluminium.

    Some UK shops taking pre-orders at £2400, that's £1000 more than the aluminium version.

    That's a massive ripoff, compared to the £700 carbon premium for Yeti/Santa Cruz

    USA frame pricing will be in line with other carbon all mountain frames out in the market. I believe the complete bike prices are going to be a great value compared to what other companies are offering.

    The frame and complete bike prices in other markets will also be competitive, but yes... the carbon frame is going to be quite a bit more expensive than the aluminum.

    Uneducated guess, $2600 USD +/- $200 for the frame, complete builds similar to TR250's in cost.

    Lol...this is comical.

    Carbon is a LOT more manual labor to build a frame than welding aluminum. Fact. If you don't like the costs associated with that, then continue to ride an aluminum version. It's an easy choice, really.

    Question:
    If you were to buy a carbon frame, would you want it to be built right, so it will last you many years of hard use/abuse and be worry free?

    Yeah, me too.

    In the meantime, I'm very happy with my aluminum frame (Chilcotin) - which basically retails for the same $$ thrown around above.

    Cheers,
    EB
