  1. $5100 for a Sram X9, Avid Elixir 5, and AC wheelset????
    Wow, that bike seems pretty overpriced, imo, or am I out of touch with the current prices.

  2. They still do make great bikes for a great price. The Dakota D29 is 4-500 less than any other carbon hardtail 29er. The two FS 29er bikes are right on par with similiar stuff from Specialized.
