Yes it defiantly would. It was pointed out in page one, $12000. The Germans must be on high wages. :D

I think if it was made in Germany, it may not have the seatpost slipping issues. everything that I have from LW is top notch.

Ax Lightness Vial EVO takes about 28 hours to build (1 frame).
I would guess Lightweight ask about *3 as much as Ax.
Or do we really thing Urgestalt takes *3 as many hours to build?
A Rolo frame cost about 7-8000 Euro. But they don't build the frames themselves.
I think it's Bike Ahead which build these frames.

Cheaper and lighter to. If I could start over again I'd take the AX instead of my Urgestalt. !!!
