Blue Ryno Carbon Full Suspension MTB?

Does anyone know anything about this bike?
http://www.rideblue.com/ryno.php

I have to order it at the dealer. I can get the complete build at the dealers cost for $2600 down from the full retail price of $3600.
My other option at this price range is the Cannondale Rize 3 for $2550.

I've never personally heard of the ryno bike not to say it's not good though.... but seems pretty inexpensive for carbon compared to cannondale and Trek options

I'd personally pick the Cannondale out of the 2 options mainly because they've been around and are more well known will make dealing with issues much more pleasant than deal;ing with a lesser know manufacture

Never heard of them.

The web site refers to all these elite athletes that helped start the company and all the UCI events that have been won on their bikes and all the championships etc. yadda yadda yadda. There are no mentions of specific athletes or events. My guess is that they are in fact stretching the truth to lend credence.

Also keep in mind that it is easy for even a small company to source bikes from Asian manufacturers, particularly China. And these days the Chinese are getting very good at what they do, including carbon fiber. Quite possibly these Blue Ryno bikes are of great quality, and quite possibly they are made by the same manufacturer as other more visible name brands.

They are pretty well respected for their road bikes, don't know much about their mountain line up though.

Blue has good road bikes as said above. My neighbor rides one for the Kenda Tire Team. It was shipped accidentally to me and I was very excited, but it wasn't for me

I don't recall from the box where it was made - I am inclined to say Taiwan or China (this was one of the RC models) - but this was more than a year ago.

Maybe BFer Phallenthoul would know...

Never heard of the ryno, couldn't pay me to own a Cannondale. My question would be why would YOU want either of these bikes? Have you ridden them? Do they suit your riding needs?
