So...

$2200 US [£1360] - but actually selling for £1700 in UK?

I think I'd save the other £250 and get a made-to-order Eriksen!


What a rediculous price!


I think anyone buying that needs their head examined really...

Not that crazy compared to most Ti frames. A Lynskey Pro 29 is £1,700,
Cotic Soda £1,500. RRP for a Whyte 19 Ti frame is £1,999 (!).

Mike:

Yes, but the Pro 29 and Soda are both made by Lynskey.
In the US.

The Whyte is made by Litespeed.
In the US.

That generally commands a higher price in the market, whereas rightly or wrongly Far Eastern made frames don't...

I may of course be wrong about the origins above, but don't think so, and think that GT are simply jumping on the band-wagon and charging what they like because:

In that case, wait a year and buy them when they get epically reduced to clear them out ;)
