    Awesome! I like the green and black, the simple colors without any major graphics really looks nice. Thanks for posting this.

    BTW what is the MSRP for these bikes? I think you mentioned that there isn't a true MSRP but what should I expect to pay at my LBS?

    The One runs about $650; the Eight runs about $800.

    Very cool Jill. This is Lance in CO who sometimes responds for Brad Iskyan on your surveys. The paint is very "street" and the spec with a 80mm fork is sweet. Where is the new Premium saddle and seatpost?

    Hey Lance!

    No Premium on MTB stuff. I'd love to use it, but it's not part of the BMX plan. They want to keep the Premium image "core" by using it on BMX bikes only.

    You'll have to check with Norco (our Canadian distributor) to see when they expect to have them. Our international distributors order direct from overseas and don't take product from our warehouse, so they're on a bit of a different distribution schedule. I'll post specs and geometry below.

    New Thread specs and Geometry

    Frame does have modifications to a certain extent. New sizing is 13 long and 13 short with the difference in sizing being top tube length. Most people are buying these bikes like BMX bikes based on TT length instead of seat tube length. New drop-outs designed by e-Thirteen are another major change...they are a proven design that completely eliminate slippage problems.

    Specs and geometry are attached.

    Jil,
    I'm loving what I see. I want a dirtjumper/urban assault bike and this is dead in my price range. What are the weights on each set up like they are?

    The Haro graphics near the BB look great. I want the green one. Yesterday.....I'm gonna have to go talk to Rob at A1 and get one on order.

    I'll try to throw them up on the scale. They are what they are...not designed to be weight-weenies by any means. My guess is they are 27-28 lbs a piece.
