    Whats up with Airborne ?

    I picked up a B-29 a few months back and occasionaly browse their site and I have noticed that they seem to be liquidating. They are selling off items and pulling them from the site. There are only 18" B-29s available now. Does anyone know whats up? I would like to think they are about to release a radical 2006 product line, but that may not be the case.
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    Ti prices going WAY up!

    I really have no idea what's going on with Airbourne, but I do know that Ti prices are going way up due to the shortage of supply vs. demand. This may be a move by Airbourne to clear out old inventory at old prices before they introduce their higher priced inventory.

    Airbourne killed off the aluminum B-29 earlier this summer, before it even came out. Not good signs to see from a bike company. Maybe we won't be seeing them around much longer?

    Their Black Widow and Lancaster bikes only show availability for 16" bikes. I doubt they're giving up on Ti Mt. Bikes all together. Probably just between model years.

    Clox, can you explain that freaky avatar of yours?
    BTW, are you still in need of that square 121mm BB? I think I have a 122 XT.

    Matt Chester had a "treatise" on the price hikes earlier in the year on his blog.

    Not something I think you would endorse. OK Lets go riding now...
