Nice. But I admit it gives me sticker shock. $4400 assuming one adds a dropper…for a hardtail. Ouch.

…still looks like a Trek:rolleyes:

So just buy the frame for $800 and do what you want on the build kit.

Looks great.

Silly amount of travel for a hardtail.

yeah i remember when they said a 100mm was way too much travel for a HT , i do remember seeing some old BMW 24" hardtails running Monster "T"s back in the day , same with the 1st Evil twin top tube HT,s

Please elaborate…seems to me like most of the HTs I see on the trails these days are running 150-160mm.

i wonder how it would run on a 26" wheelset…

I'm not a human in real life, I just play one on the internet.

68 degree head angle (static?), say 71 degrees in use and 74 degrees if you hit something hard.

F**k that.

I was about to pull the trigger on a 27.5" Surly Instigator build until I discovered this bike was coming out - my Ferrari Red M/L's pre-booked!

I think the rider might have something to do with it ;)

Looks nice… frame only price is more than reasonable.
