I like the designs that Confederate puts together. It would be nice to see them make some headway in the market.



They seem to be pretty resilient and resourceful considering the used to be in N.O.



But 60 grand for a bike? I wonder if they will ever get that price down?

Upside: beautifully assembled conglomeration of exceptional components.



Downside: Tom Cruise bought one to make himself look cool.

How many $60k bikes does a company have to sell to make profit. At $60k a pop they build, what, around 30-50 annually?????
