hey guys jason here from cali, just curious about the 2009 SE 24inch white quadangle, do you think the bike is really worth the 800-900 dollar price tag. i was going to go out tomarrow and buy the bike here in san francisco, they had it for 749.95 plus tax. i hear people saying that the bike is made out of china and is not really limited, but mass produced. also i hear people saying the bike comes with cheap parts, but i have the 07 pk ripper limited retro bike and i think the cranks are nicer than my profiles on my spec. s works 2000 bike. the brakes are not like shimano xtrs but they are pretty good, how about the frame quailty vs. usa made frames from way back then? i would just like to get some feedback, thanks.

I don't know as I haven't seen it in person to really question its quality.

If I like the bike, I'll probably get the frame and fork and build a custom. The $900 price tag is, in my opinion, too much for an overseas made BMX bike that will probably need some parts to be replaced in the near term.

Anyway, Why don't you check the Floval Flyer. It should have a lower price tag and the ride should be better.

I think the new 09 24" quad is freakin awesome, definately one of the best looking bikes I have seen in a long time. BUT I would have a hard time spending almost 1k for a bike with mediocre parts. I think a lot of hype is surrounding these retro SE bikes and I think the prices have elevated to a non realistic level. It would be ALOT different if these bikes had top of the line components, at least you could justify the high price tag. As it is the only thing you are really paying for is the history of the bike, its not because the frame and fork are premium quality or the materials are exotic. For some people the history behind these bikes is so great that 1k for a bike is a little price to pay to travel back to the days when they were young. Just my .02 worth.

okay here is what i am saying is that why just not also buy the frame and fork if it is cheap also, it comes out of china also, so what the hell is the differance if you buy the whole bike or just the frame and fork, it sounds like se should just go to hell and not make these bikes at all, because they are suppose to be cheap and they come from china not usa.

The price vs. value isn't what it should be when paying 800-900 for these bikes. I have an 08 OM that I paid $430 complete and for that price it's a good bike. I would NOT pay almost double for the same bike. I guess that's your answer.

The frame and fork look nice. The stem, bars, spider & especially the pedals on the OM look cheap and are commonly replaced. Something you don't feel quite as bad doing when paying $430 vs $800-900. Hope this helps.

I've got quite a bit more than what the retail price is in mine. I haven't added it all up, but I think it's somewhere in the realm of $1600. It isn't white either.
