    for 850 you could get some really really really nice frame and start buying parts to build it up also. the ashton is a cool frame but i cant see riding one unless it was given to me. for 850 you could go custom steel/ti/al and get a fork with what was left over.

    i wasnt really interested in it, just wondering if anyone had heard anythign about it. i wont have another $800 for a long while, and id probably buy something more along the lines of a koxx or something like that. but that just kinda caught my eye.

    It is SUPER short, unless you just want to look different stay far the fuck away.

    the coustellier frame just took a design element that was touched upon and applied it to a frame that kicks way more ass.
