if you are going to spend over 1500$, make it custom built, order all the parts separatedly. Buying a ready made bike for 8.8k is a big shame.

Since it's hydraulic I guess you need to push oil to shift up as well as to shift down. I'm sure you can read more about it on Acros' website.

That is an awesome bike! But I do see a point in the silly money off the shelf bikes purely in terms of a brands image with the big money brigade. Sort of like in golf where certain clubs cost a ruddy fortune and make not a lot of difference over ones half the price, but there are plenty of people out there who have to have the best. So if there is a market there, then why not build them? It just gives us someone/thing to have a little laugh at when you see them :lol:
