    Some great deals here. I'm really thinking about picking up a Sabre for my wife. She's been wanting to get on the trails with me and you can't beat that deal.

    At $249 there's almost no reason why anyone shouldn't be able to ride a bike. That's a great price and a perfect way to introduce people to mountain biking and biking in general. I bought my wife a $500 bike and although she hasn't used it much, the few times she biked with me made it worth the purchase.

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing! Sabre would make a great gift beginner's mountain bike for a kid or spouse or whoever might like to dabble in some recreational mountain biking once in a while. Sometimes it take just some like this to spark the flame in someone who didn't even know they'd love mountain biking simply because they've never tried it.

    I find it curious that the dirt-jump bike having no shifters and no derailleurs is $200 more than the Skyhawk that does have those things. Weird how bike pricing plays out sometimes. Good prices though. I'm not complaining.

    Yeah those are great buys right now on the two low spec bikes you could throw an xc 28 or even go for a recon at around $200 and have a nice little beginner bike for around $500.

    Yeah, you would think that on initial glance but if you dig into it deeper it makes sense.

    The FUNN cockpit stuff is expensive (bars/stem/post/seat/lock-ons), while the 48-splined cro-mo cranks also cost more than the Skyhawk cranks. Then we have considerable more cost in the frame due to the larger hydro-formed tubing and the custom-designed drop-outs. There are a few other things that cost a little more on the bike but those are the large-ticket items that really move the needle.
