Fetish Cycles??

Has anyone heard about these guys?? I saw their 2004 Discipline frame on Ebay and think I may have found the replacement for my broken P3 I'm 220lbs and need something burly. any feedback is welcome.

I just ordered a Discipline SS frame and a scratch n' dent MTB frame from Fetish today. Guy on the phone knocked $100 off the SS frame and gave me free shipping for both. He said they're offering a bunch of specials for Christmas. Give them a call....

Wedge.. how much did it cost you for that frame? Looks pretty beefy to me.


Jcivic... I'd consider looking at the Snipes Elemental (www.snipesbicycles.com) if you're looking for a hardtail frame for less than 400. If you're looking for something high end and super beefy consider the 24 Le Toy or perhaps the Evil Imperial. Both are completely indestructable even for a guy your size. If you break one, let them know once you get out of the hospital and they'll send you a new frame

Jim.....I actually got the SS mountain bike frame, which is a little different. It cost me $199. Both are listed for $299 on ebay though, so I imagine you could get a similiar deal.

finished bike....

Here is a couple pics of my almost finished Discipline hardtail. I've got some Avid Mechs on order and my bike shop is building me a set of XT disc/Singletrack wheels. I'll just ride it with the V-brakes for the time being though.
