Damn.. I wanted to get one of those after all my projects are done. Would probably have been fall anyways and that bike would have been perfect.

The price was orig 225, then it skyrocketed up to 349 literally over night! Ill wait till the price goes back down, then Ill snatch one up. BTW Ive got that Beast front brake kit up for sale dude! The price is A LOT lower than what it cost me to get it all together let me tell you!

I saw the listing and could tell! I'm holding out for a dolomite and like you, waiting on the price to drop back down I'd rather not get a beast and have to do the stuff you did to yours.. did I miss something, is your beast gone now?

Oh no! I love my Beast! I just started up riding it again...and quickly fell back in love with it! I like the fact that its a simple bike (single speed) with less moving parts, which = less **** to break down! LOL! I would like to grab a Dolomite but might just wait longer and buy a higher end Fat Tire Bike, something with an aluminium frame and better components, but lets see what happens.

Sounds similar to my plan, let a good fat tire frame fall in my lap later and not spend thousands on parts...
