Buy this YT Industries bike tomorrow only at a ridiculously cheap price!
Seen the YT Industries advert in the opening pages of Dirt 117? Well somebody just reminded me that tomorrow (which I call Spinal Tap day) 11/11/11 you can buy the YT Industries Tues DH LTD WC bike for the unbelievable price of 2888 Euros or about £2469 quid.
That’s super cheap if you add up the spec list:
Marzocchi 888 forks…£1100
Can Creek Double Barrel…£500
That’s about £2500 already!
Anybody fancy totting up the spec list? www.yt-industries.com/shop
Just checked the small print and you won’t get the bike till April 2012.
Hit up www.yt-industries.com
Here’s what they say on the webber:
It’s second time round for our Tues WC Limited Project. On 11 November last year, we only made 24 of our supremely equipped WC DH bikes available for sale and because demand was so high, this year we have decided to set the limit as the day and not as a quantity!
So anyone who orders a Tues 2.0 DH WC Limited on 11/11/11 will get one!
The basis of our 2012 Limited Project is the new, completely redeveloped Tues 2.0 frame.
While the kinematics of our already perfectly functioning V4L rear construction have only seen a little fine tuning, the configuration of the geometry has been much more intense and the tube constructions have been completely re-engineered.
The result: a perfectly balanced downhill frame with New School Race geometry, variable wheelbase, higher rigidity values in the steering head bearing and bottom bracket area and a 600-g reduction in weight compared with the 2011 Tues frame!
Marzocchi 888 RC3 Evo Titan suspension forks – YT special edition with red anodised fork crowns
Cane Creek Double Barrel shock
Mavic Deemax impellers with Maxxis Minion UST tires
Sram XO rear derailleur and shift lever / Avid XO/Code brakes
E13 LG1R downhill cranks and chain guide
Renthal stem and handlebar / Thomson Elite seatpost
As well as calibrating the spring stiffness of the forks and shock to your individual weight and riding style, we will also adjust the Rise of the handlebar to suit your needs, and incorporate your name and national flag into the bike decor of this limited edition. A truly unique piece customised just for you!
This is how it will work:
The Tues 2.0 WC LTD bike will be released for sale in our online shop on 11/11/11 from 0:00. It will then be possible to order the bike over the next 24 hours. The shop will close again exactly on midnight.
Your order is binding. We must receive payment within 14 days, otherwise we will unfortunately have to cancel your order. As the bike is customised for you according to your individual size and weight, and with your name and national flag, we are unable to accept payment in advance. It is therefore also not possible to exchange the bike! Our standard warranty conditions apply.
As the bike is produced on the basis of your own personal and individual specifications, your Tues will obviously be in production for a certain time before it can be delivered. Your bike will therefore be dispatched in April 2012. We will provide you with an exact time three weeks before it is due to be delivered.
