    Default $20k for thumbies and v-brakes...

    NIGHTSTREAM MTB - Vandeyk

    I guess you could say it's a work of art. But $20k? That's a lot of dough.

    "VANDEYK aims to built perfectly functional art objects on two wheels..:"

    Always beware and cover your wallet when the word "Art" gets worked into the pitch.

    Looks like Gary underpriced the Deluxe Redux by 14K.

    Nuts. Chris Chance could get back in the game and clean up selling a re-issued Yo Eddy! to no one other than the Germans.

    I hope they sell a bunch.

    A couple of those a year and it's the good life.

    That is a super cool bike -- fun to look at, and I love the oddball spec (highest grade liquid paint and 7800 rear derailleur, you say?). And price is just a state of mind, man. Still, when you compare it to what, say, Garro does . . . well, either Garro should be charging more or these guys should be charging less.

    any idiot who buys this listen up - i am going to put some rad day-glo doodles on my vintage 1991 prince graphite racquets, which have similar functionality compared to modern equipment as this ridiculous mountain bike does (or more), and they're yours for $10k / each. VERY limited edition, two available.

    Apparently not enough saddle to bar drop for one thing. You're also not photographing them in a container warehouse/park of some sort at night. It's all the little things that add up you know.

    Is it steel?
    If so I could build one for <5K for sure, maybe a little more for the.......uh, .........Paint.
    I saw I think a Mtn Goat with that same job, maybe?
    Or a Mantis.......
    I really do think when I "retire" (yeah, right...) I'm going into custom cruisers.
    Don McClung-esque but my style.
    Blah, blah, blah........

    That paint looks like the wiring diagram for my van.

    Dude, why wait? Offer em now- if you can sell a couple of $20k (+) cruisers a year, do it. Spend more time with D and sunning yourself on the river.

    I do not want to either court nor attempt to please someone who wants a 20K cruiser - I just can't build to that level - can anyone?

    Someone posted a conversation with I think Nagasawa awhile back where he said he could build a frame worth one million yen, but that it was a futile enterprise.

    I like the type of people my price point attracts, and it's one I can built to and not disappoint either myself or my clients.

    It's all good. I'm at the top of my game & rising but I want people to feel really stoked about their Coconino when they get it, I want them to say "I knew it would be nice, but not THIS nice" that's good stuff right there.

    One thing about framebuilding - you always know your layoff date = right after your last order is filled........

    Is it my imagination or is the weld on the seatstay (first pic in gallery) kinda sloppy looking? It looks like a keliod scar.
