    They have to be joking about the price--- that is expensive for what you get.

    ...hmmmm...

    Hey Langster 2008, did you're mate ever pick up a Pearson? I was curious what he/you think of it now. There's not much on BFSSFG about them. But it's a decent looking bike from the pic's...

    It looks good except for the price. I dont think Ive seen a SSFG that comes standard with a carbon fork.
    Thats a plus.

    Yeah, I think it is a bit over priced too. But, I guess if you were to go off the exchange rate from 2000, the price would be ok.

    Overpriced if your buying with American dollars. Probably a bargain in terms or euros, yen or lil barrels of oil.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I think the Van Dessel Country-Road Bob comes with a carbon fork. It's a damn sight better looking than that Pearson bike, too, and cheaper. Ugh. Integrated headsets should be made illegal by UN charter.

    The CRB has an internal headset. Van Dessel seems to be doing that with all their bikes, it's a shame really.
