The initial release will feature hand built carbon fibre frames and cost USD14,995. Subsequent versions will forgo the carbon fibre frame with a corresponding reduction in price to USD11,995.

  3. Frank,
    Given a good mountain bike costs you more than $1500 these days I suspect you will be waiting a long time.
    Yes, these lead products are expensive but the important thing is that they get produced and prove the technology is suitable for everyday use.
    Unless the early adopters buy products like these we’ll be waiting even longer for them to become mainstream and affordable.
