I found a dealer on eBay selling these for under $275. Other dealers say $275 is the lowest authorized selling price, and buying one for less, I don't get the warranty.
Anyone know if this is true or just total crap?
Not sure, why not contact Kirk Kinetics and find out?

It's true, at least on eBay. Kurt wants us to support independent bike dealers, and I agree. Thought it was interesting though.
(Can be sold under $275, but not advertised under $275)
I just got one from gottaridebikes.com. It's $275 with free shipping, but there's a 20% off coupon for your first purchase from them. That brings it to $235 to my door. (There's a $15 oversize charge) I think that's a pretty good price.
Came Wednesday and the frame didn't sit level. Sent Kurt an email that night and when I got home from work on Thursday, I had an email waiting from them saying a new one (frame) was going out UPS that day, with a return shipping label for the bent one. That's good customer service!
I set the bent one up with a shim until the new one gets here. Great feel, but it's a lot louder than I expected. Everyone says they're so quiet... Mine seems about the same as my Mag trainer. Anyone else?

Yeah, they're not that quiet. Not loud, but not silent either.
