    The 2011 725tr is $80 more than the 2010 version, not $130 as you stated >>> http://coghouse.com/

    I haven't posted here in quite a while, but this thread got me excited enough to post. The picture is a little bit old as I broke my front rim (it was a left over rim I threw on) and it has been replaced by a 48 hole chukkar. Oh and btw the way I didnt break it going off some cool ramp or jumping stairs, it got backed into by my neighbors car while it was locked up outside while I ran inside to grab some water....

    iminusd is blowing out the 2010 725 for 128 less than the 2011, so some places it is that big of a difference for nicer looking welds and paint.

    Just curious, why can I not find a 61cm 725 frame when it's listed in scrod's geo chart?

    I don't think they make a 61cm in the new 725. Kinda sucks for us tall folks

    Though it did make me feel better about getting the 721

    i hear ya, i was originally going with open pros.

    i think that is the only thing i am second guessing...but the velocitys are cool and fine with me. got them a bit cheaper than i could OPs.

    Thanks! Just need to finish up my back wheel, dial in my stem height (and install my clips/straps). Kinda pissed that the ThickSlicks I ordered won't be in my hands until early June but oh well.

    I'm really, really stoked about this bike.

    I first found out these bars exist by seeing them on Retrogression, and I was like "Hmm..."

    Now I'm like "Oooo...Hmm..."

    Trying to decide on new bars for my 721.

    Can this be? Scrodzilla has become a hipster?

    I figured. My 725 looks like it eats people and I wouldn't classify it as "hipster" by any stretch.
