Forget about 'em. They are a North of the border company

Actually they make a very nice bike for a reasonable price.

For the price you don't get very good components.

Compared to what. Brodie is a good company, I live around the northshore -Brodie is ridden,

Klien, Brodie, Fisher, Ritchey, Fat Chance -old school. Brodie and others did not progress like Kona did.
Rockey Mountain, Norco etc.

Probably nothing actually. I wasn't of even thinking of that fact that it was a freeride bike. My mistake.

The shop I worked at over a decade ago sold brodies, back when they were part of "the bicycle group" along with kona and merlin.

I remember brodies as being nice fairly light handbuilt steel frames. Judging from their website, they got sick of that sort of thing. Shame, really.

I know, that is why I said that

I almost bout their 8-Ball a few years ago. Only the frame though and they were going to charge my <1000$ . They are also customer friendly and easy to talk with. Some of the parts on a full build from them are not the best but their frames do hold up well.
