    Gauging Interest on 29er Hardtail Complete Bike..

    I'm thinking of offering our 29er hardtail as a complete bike with a Rockshox REBA, truvativ cranks, bar, stem, and WTB wheelset. Is this something that you guys would be interested in if we offered it? And if so, what retail price point? Comments are appreciated.

    Sounds good, but would someone still be able to get a frame only?

    Also you may want to post in the 29er forum.

    Interested...

    But not as interested as I would be in the frame only, or a 29r XCL frame only. I wouldn't go out and buy a high end botique frame just to have the parts dictated to me; thats how off the shelf bikes are purchased. If I'm buying a botique frame I'm going to want to pick each part.

    Think companies have found great success with complete 29er bikes, like the Monocoq and Mary SS, at great price points.

    I would really dig a Chumba 29er complete, but can see why people would want frame only.

    Just throwing this out there but price point would probably be somewhere between $1,100 and $1,400?

    So when can we expect a frame or complete bike, some of us might be getting impatient!
