    beat me to it Eps.

    someone toss up some more info!
    (don't know about y'all, but if I were to drop three large on a frame, it had better be made of something hard to spell, and have at least 6 inches of travel.)

    Here is the link:

    http://www.avantibikes.com/thrasher/...td.aspx?bid=41


    It looks like a nice build to me. But not for $3000aud.

    BTW

    $3000aud = $2570usd

    Wouldn't pay it either. You can spec out a much nicer build for a lot less.

    Ehh $2500, is a rip off for that, the only part i like is the Argyle. If your willing to spend that much $$ build your own.

    i got one :)

    well, i got mine recently for $1500 aus
    i wouldnt have bought it for $3000
    it rides smooth, and sure doesnt seem like a bike that you could buy stock
    its got juicy 7's, argyle 318, suv wheelset (rear hub is really loud ), sram x.9 and the cassette is awesome, truvativ holzfeller crank set with pedals, cro-moly frame is super light and its got horizontal drop outs (perfect for singlespeed)..
    its overall a awesome ride, super smooth with top of the range components, but i wouldnt have bought it for full price

    I got my bike handbuilt and built it up component by component and ended up paying a bit less than that.

    For the amount of bike you're getting it's a ripoff, but I know you aussie have crazy high bike prices

    I would totally buy that if it weren't for the fact that the Zoolander jokes would get real old real quick.

    dude, the specs. rock man...nothing wrong with the bike. but the price is just a little too much. Maybe you also have components on the bike which you don't want but still cost a lit, like the whole gearing thing...X-9 is quite expensive and maybe you don't want it. Your also paying for a front brake with lever and all...and you don't need that but it still costs a lot. Maybe just get the frame and buy all the components that you want...everything that you need, nothing that you dont. full stop.
