Kickstarter price was 1700 CAD for the 10-speed. Which is more like 1300 USD so the discount from retail (1900 USD) is substantial. Backers also get a couple of upgrades (better pedals, discs and chainring).
So it looks like a good discount to me. If the bike ever gets delivered, that is.

So would I.
I like alternative bikestyles.
