haha is my frame just a nice little price, in all honesty i think its not over priced considering a seconhand moots frame sell for over £2k for a hard tail and when you take into account
it one of less than 280 made then compared to your run of mill frames its not that bad.

I love everything about these but I have one niggling question - if they're so good why didn't they capitalize on the design and make more? Why aren't they making them now?

They do still make them to order for $6000
Plus shipping.
Think the design is patented and all mtb stick
With current setups as titanium cost is silly compared
To carbon and ali. The design does work very well
And is super smooth the silk ti works on similar
Principle which again is a very nice ride.

They were incredibly expensive to produce, mainly the downtube which is almost square in profile and acts sort of like a suspension wishbone. The design rides just fine, its been superceeded with newer stuff -havent all designs- but it still does the job and the ride is sweet. I did the 2011 Trans-provence on mine. I love mine and wouldnt sell it unless there was a gun to my head.
