The colours on the new Ruben and Hickerson frames are sure looking sweet as

Danny Hickerson is rad and all, but I cant imagine any of the groms I deal with day to day buying his frame for anything other than the color.

Also, I got really stoked for the Cyclops when I saw the thread title, but you let me down.

Obviously took what I said the wrong way . I meant that just because it is made in the same place as Fly frames doesnt necessarily make them the same. This also applies for things outside of bmx as well. A brewery could produce 100 varieties of beer but they aren't all the same.

I had my doubts about the removable mounts too but really there is no more flex than a pair of welded ones with this frame, if they have to be removable they won't be better than this setup. BB is higher than I'd like though, wish it was 11.5 on the ruben with a little taller stand over.

I rode a fly frame for 7 years and the brake mounts felt as solid as any. My current frame has welded mounts and I can't feel a difference.

Wait, they are selling the brake accessories separately now, why ?

They say to keep the cost down but the prices are the same as all the other past frames with the accessories, more moola...

The trans green and blue look trick though.

Call me blasphemous, but I feel like Terrible 1 stopped being Terrible 1 when Taj left.

I get why they had the push to the foreign made frames, bars, and sprockets, though.  It's just too damn hard to get a reliable production company in the US. 

Anybody that has the ability to make quality bmx parts in the US ends up making something else that has much better margins.

I would rather call you snuggly.  I can see where some of this opinion could be validated if you are over the age of 30.  I will agree that my favorite T1 related shit is from back in the day when it was both Joe and Taj working on stuff together.  But to me it comes down to the fact that Terrible One will always be Terrible One.  With as man green boxes as those mother fuckers acquired over the years, you gotta get a shit ton of red ones to even begin to start tarnishing their reputation.

Uh, yeh, I get where you're coming from.

I'm with you that T1 is still awesome, it's just not the exact same as what I remember.  I mean Joe Rich will always be a superhero in my mind. 

I just kinda wish that it was a perfect world and that T1 could make all their frames, bars, sprockets, stems, etc somewhere local and could actually put things out when they want to in the quantities they want. 

I'm still bummed I didn't get a 21.5 barcode when I had the chance... 

I still love both sets of T1 bars I've got on my bikes too.

many riders don't use brakes, so we remove the brake mounts and sell them separately to those who want them

the dealer cost of the frames increased.  if we still included the mounts with the frames, the cost of the frame to the consumer would have increased

If I was buying a frame priced on the higher end of things, regardless of if I rode brakes or not, I would expect it to be full-featured - like my Fly Tierra.
This is like an in-app purchase.

Most companies don't include them now. The only frame we've had in recently to include them was a Haro Lineage. It makes sense not to considering barely anyone runs brakes, but it's a pain in the arse trying to tell someone who is spending 3/400 on a frame that they need to spend more. I usually chuck them in FOC unless I'm doing a special deal on it.

I hadn't looked at it that way, I guess you must find some compromise.

I wonder what might happen if you were offering the brake mounts free-of-charge, but as an opt-in - would brakeless riders still take it because it's offered, or pass it up because fukk brakez?
It would be interesting anyways to see the numbers of demand, even if only to inform manufacturing decisions.
Title: Re: New T1 drool
Post by: Hank Chinaski on November 20, 2014, 02:17:49 PM
So if no one is running them, why aren't they free? You make it sound like there should be an abundance. If they're only needing mounts for 25% of the frames vs 100% previously it seems shitty to charge a jacked up price so you can have a fucking brake on your bike.

Title: Re: New T1 drool
Post by: redface on November 20, 2014, 04:29:22 PM
in a normal case where the frame cost hasn't increased for some other reason, the retail price of the frame goes down when the brake stuff is no longer included.  example:  the retail price of Fit and S&M frames dropped $15.00 when they started no longer including the brake stuff

T-1 and Federal, from what i recall, raised their wholesale prices.  so, subtract the brake stuff but increase frame costs means the frame retails for the same price without brake stuff as it did in the past when it included brake stuff.  i'm not sure why that is confusing

brake shit isn't free because it doesn't cost the brands $0.00 to have it produced.  if anything, if brands are ordering fewer brake mount kits, they might actually be paying more (per kit) for them now than in the past

I hear what your saying, Flybikes have kept their prices the same with them not including brake accessories yet T1 opted for this route by not including them yet their prices have risen, the Ruben and Hickerson are made in the same factory as Fly ? I doesn't make sense it just shows me they wanted to increase their price and offer less if you will.

Edit: With the brake mount kits if I were them I'd ordered the same amount to keep the cost the same and just sell them separately, that way their not losing anything.

You should probably send your application to T1.  Sounds like you got this bicycle company thing figured out. 
Title: Re: New T1 drool
Post by: redface on November 21, 2014, 11:12:47 AM
T1 sells the frames direct to shops with brake mounts included.  we decided to remove the mounts and sell them separately due to customer requests (customers who didn't want the mounts, ever, for any reason).  we had the frames priced at $359.95 with mounts due to increased cost to us for the frames.  this happens due to smaller qty of frames ordered from the factory, inflation, etc.  when we removed the mounts, we lowered the retail cost to $349.95.  now, since another shop is selling the frames for $349.95 with mounts, we lowered the retail cost to $339.95.  T1's USA vendor sells the frame and mounts separately, so it's not just us making this decision

regarding Fly vs T1 frame prices, Fly makes a lot more frames than T1, and probably can demand better pricing, even from the same factory

i've also added the brake mounts as an option when ordering the frame, so you only have to click a button.  no fuss, no muss :)

regarding ordering the same amount of mounts, past vs present:  1. most companies are making fewer total frames than in the past  2. why order more of something than you realistically think you can sell?

This is what I wanted to hear.  I just checked it out on your store too, and like how it's done.

Even if people are having problems with them coming loose, a little loctite fix's it.

Of course, but if that mount happens to snap for some reason you can't replace it.
