    That would be hard to calculate. But it could easily break 10,000 with the price of say a nicolai frame, super montser and or that dorado. Those two alone would make around 7000$ american without wheels or drivetrain. Tack on A set of deemax a around 1000$

    That nicolai will only require maintanence for the next 6 ot 7 years under the most abuse the best freeriders can dish out...thats under 2000$ a year for that time period. with a bike that won't break and that can under HUGE hucks amongst other things. Most freeriders doing big big drops replace their bike1 to 2 times a year, maybe more depending on the rider

    Also nicolai offers full warranty no matter what the usage. And specifically names racing as something that can be warrantied. THAT is unheard of in this industry

    wow - never thought buying a 10k frame could ever be justified, but hey that says it all.

    ever since its been mentioned up top, i've been looking around the net for info on the rn01 - with nothing really specific, anyone hear of updates since this was last discussed in may?

    I know that a fully equipped Seven Duo-Lux can get around $8000 US. That's no small change and it's readily available at bike shops... My LBS carries Seven cycles and basically you tell them what you want, they send the order to Seven and Seven builds it to your custom specs. I'm sure there are fully assembled bikes that are more expensive, but $8000 is still a ton of money in my book.

    If you ever spend time in WNC you'll find that stupider and other words stupider than that are in the hillbilly language.

    One time driving thru Tennesee (for 15 minutes to get to NC) I saw a sign for "Free Dirt" As if all dirt isn't free and a place that sold Missles.
