grampy bone said:I agree its probably put together in Asia. I was interested because Colorado Cyclist Douglas series bikes have a good rep, especially the Fusion model.
If anyone has been able to ride this frame, chime in.
blbike said:I've been into the shop a few times. I'm told its made by the same company that makes Scott Bikes, which is Topeak. It looks very similar in most regards, fair bit heavier though. IMO, more than the 1050g they list. Pricewise for a frameset I don't think its a great deal, but the Ultegra/Dura Ace bike prices are competitive.
1499.99 is less than 1500.00, but not by much. I am not a CC fan , I went by when I lived in Colorado and they were very arrogant. I prefered Excel (I still order from them).FondriestFan said:Look at LeopardCycles.com. They get their frames from Trigon and they charge less.
I think it's foolish to pay that much for that frame.
They are actually made in Taiwan, and come out of the same place as the Scott's (and Giant's?).collectorvelo said:If it is Topeak, it is my understanding they also make Specialized, Fuji, and Cannondale -- but all in China
I think they should tell you if it is made in Taiwan or China -- in case you prefer to buy from one over the other
