- Jul 4, 2008MSRP on an Instigator frame is $410
MSRP on an Instigator fork is $100
A freeradical kit will be nearer $500 for the next batch
That's $1010. A Big Dummy with bags will probably be somewhere around
$1300-$1350. Having ridden both, I'd gladly pay twice the difference.
I think where the freeradical really shines is in its ability to
reinvent old frames. My favorite setup was with an 80's Ross mountain
bike that I pulled out of the dumpster. It rode much better than the
Instigator, and at $500 versus $1300 the cost argument is more
