Seems to be a price drop on these. Now £620-£650 at Triton cycles (depending on which size you want). They used to be nearer £800 I think when they first came out. Still bloody expensive tho

Might not help you but JMTB here in the UK are selling the PP Shan 917 for £399 and the Oka for £386. Pretty bloody good if you ask me
no it dosn't really but thats over $300 off rrp for anyone that is interested tup anyway

Ordered a Shan 27 from ddcycles for £399, just wanting for my atlas cinch cranks to turn up nowBig Grin

[Quote="mgolder"]Bit of small chipping to the paint on the stay, but the carbon is good still. So will get that covered up soon.


Wow I wonder how much you paid for that...

They're like £800 new. Found an ex-display one nearly a couple hundred cheaper.

Looks like a nice frame...not a big fan of the colour but the frame looks solid and has all good things by the looks if it.

Yeah that's a good idea....The Shans are a bargain at the moment and so are Atlas cinch....

i would say the complete opposite - hard to justify £600 when the morf with equal quality bespoke tubeset cost less. bespoke means custom butted & formed.

Facepalm yeah I got that but also thought there might've been a name to it? So I guess its like Richey's prologic? I think but yeah as a cpl pages ago pointed out its got a fair warranty and crash replacement, so I take back the question, with a better understandingtup book:

Freeborn have them listed at £680 currently new (But they had the Genesis Latitude at £330 too but the website didn't say they actually had no stock). But I didn't wanna push my luck by spending that much. Got it for £450 so I'm pretty happy with that really. The colour is one of the big things I like about it. I'll need a new seatpost and probably a 40-50mm stem mind.
