am one of those freaks that bought the zaskar re-issue; i paid € 1299 over here in germany, that's roughly 1000 gbp.
the uk price is 699 gbp....
anyway, there are quite some issues with the "re-issue":
- welded in the us, then shipped to taiwan for polishing/ballburnishing... the shipping boxes say made in taiwan...
- the frames are built for intregrated headsets, that alone is not the real thing. worst is that the finish is extremely poor, the headtube milling is not centered
- my frame and a few others came with ugly wheel and skewer marks
am sending the frame back and will ask for refund. i recommend to stay away from this product - it is just a poor marketing bubble.

am really disappointed, if not to say pxssed off! had invested a lot of money into this frame and had bougth a heap of bling parts for this babe.
when i saw the frame i felt like collapsing, couldn't believe it's so poor.
