    Yeah, it's a good deal, but not in the right size, and not compelling enough of a deal to snatch up and sell on Ebay or something

    Still, it's good to see some decent mountain frames up there.

    There is one REALLY good reason to buy this frame, from CL. Surprised no one else has figured it yet.
    No hints.

    They keep popping up at Chainlove and of course, there is another one at Jenson. Still not worth it though. The MSRPs was hugely inflated to begin with and anything over a grand is not a good deal. Even at a grand, many would not touch them...the track record of flex, bad bearing interfaces, frame alignments, and reliability has been really bad. You can't make money selling them on Ebay at this price- you would lose a couple of hundred if you're lucky...fair warning.

    If this is the very frame you have been waiting for, go for it.

    Found out tonight that it doesn't even come with the x4 shock. It comes with the x3 shock. The description was a typo.
