    Wow, an X7 hardtail for three grand. That is pretty amazing.

  • James S says:

    I’m afraid I’m gonna have to jump on the naysayer bandwagon. The price is way too high. Especially considering that you can buy an On-One Lurcher frame for less than $700. I’m not sure I could trust one of those generic frames. but the On-One guys seem pretty legit to me. I know On-One cuts out the middle man to get prices that low, but that doesn’t quite explain the high price of the Broadaxe especially given the economics of scale in having QBP backing you. Heck, a Niner carbon frame can be had for just $150 more.

    Hell the King Kahuna is less than that, full carbon.

    A bit of a bait and switch there. Not impressed

  • Pringle says:

    Yeah, when I saw it would be a generic frame from QBP, and try it for only $1749, I thought it was a complete bike price, and at that price, I thought it might not be that bad of a deal. Almost competitive with ebay carbon, but with the backing of QBP. I’d pay a little more for that. Then I saw it was just the frame price. Eek!

  • David Seal says:

    Why call a brand “Foundry” if its bikes are Chinese made carbon fiber? It is disingenuous. The name is supposed to evoke the idea that the bikes are crafted, that they are ultra durable and metallic. Instead it is Chinese near slave labor. Sort of like the fake “surf” brands that materialized a few years back with full lines of pre-faded “surfer” jeans and hoodies. Fail. Give me a Surly, not this stuff, especially not with this name.
