    That is really very nice. Massive chainring though?!

    Looks great that – bargin for £250! (Edit: Oh I see it’s £500)
    To retain a nice ‘standard’-looking frame the chainstays are longer than some though (like the Kona Honzo for example).

    I do not need another bike, even if the frame is a bargain.

    *repeats*

    it’s lovely & Pre-order price is bargain

    250 is a deposit – another 250 to pay for it in full

    From Website :

    Preorder is 50% of RRP

    unless I’m missing something?

    Oh I see – did seem cheap.
    Main page is a bit misleading though.
    Should say £250 deposit.

    Yeah, I was already tearing into the order process when I realised.

    Very misleading… So there’s not actually a discount for pre-ordering!?

    Hope to (fingers crossed) place my order tomorrow.

    Of…off

    Sneaky way of phrasing things…

    “like the Kona Honzo for example”
    I could be misremembering/making this up, but I thought the honzo was single ring specific, ie you cant fit a front mech? I’m not sure

    Looks like there’d be room for a front mech on this

    Premier Icon letmetalktomark

    There is.

    The pics show routing for a front mech 🙂

    I normally don’t think 29ers look ‘right’, but that is GORGEOUS. 😛

    That’s the first 29er I’ve even looked twice at.

    EDIT: Beaten to it! ^^^ Was too busy trying to phrase that correctly, but yes – it does, pretty much, look ‘right’.

    Very ‘Firefly’ shiny!

    I normally don’t think 29ers look ‘right’, but that is GORGEOUS. I think its the high BB (25mm drop vs 70mm on a singular kite) and massive chainring, makes it look like a small wheel bike with short stays.

    Blimey I was reaching for my bank card there until I realised the 250 was only a deposit.

    Hey guys, just to clarify it’s 50% deposit and 50% before shipping, no intention to be misleading I obviously didn’t express it as well as I thought I had. You wouldn’t have been able to move on through the payment system from the front screen without making the decision to “pay in full” or leave a deposit anyway but I’ve hopefully made the situation more clear on the site.
    Thank you for the Sherpa appreciation guys 🙂
    Oh an its a 35t chainring 😉 11-36 cassette and yes you can run a front mech, it’s on an E-type mount.

    I have been umming and arring about weather I can justify the cost of changing my frame out since they announced this…

    Is there a discount for starting such a nice thread about it? :mrgreen:

    Will the price likely go up for those who don’t pre-order?
    or is there a limited number made?

    so close to ordering…..

    I think its the high BB (25mm drop vs 70mm on a singular kite)

    Just to point out that this is incorrect – the BB drop on the Sherpa is 50mm (I checked with Stanton).

    anyone know:
    – is it a tapered headtube?
    – standard 135mm QR rear axle?

    cheers

    That colour is pure ’94 Kona Lava Dome – love it!

    Premier Icon wwaswas

    looks like a 44mm headtube, not tapered. Has a standard QR in that picture.

    ’94 Kona Lava Dome

    I have one of those! (well it’s rusting away in a friend’s garage)
    oh hang on that’s an explosif and is probably a bit yellower.

    walla24

    doesn’t 44mm mean it can run tapered?
    I’m confused

    Premier Icon Rusty Mac

    44mm can run tapered forks with an external bottom cup.
