I could have sworn I saw the eastside for around 399 or 450 on monday.
I live in Hong Kong--they originally offered to ship from Taiwan for $300 (USD), but I said I'd just take a frame for the 20% off. Then on Monday they did the Eastside for $395 shipped, so I jumped on it. They wouldn't give me the $300 for shipping though as they said they were subsidizing shipping at the original price + discount, which was fair enough. They still gave me $25 off the shipping because of the complicated purchase/refund cycle we went through over the weekend.
Chinese-made components are a lot cheaper here, and there is actually some really good stuff coming out of China right now (less than 1% of all Chinese production maybe, lol).
$900 may indeed be a low estimate, but they do built bikes for good deals. I can get a fully built Cinelli for around $700 from the dealer.
Maybe I should just keep the Fyxation and remove the decals--it'll be one of the only ones on the road, and sans decals, won't scream STEAL ME if I leave it locked up somewhere. Fyxation DO have a local dealer as well.
