Sette asks you to Compare

Not many people know this but along with selling bike frames, which we have extensively tested (Reken) or are testing (Razzo), Sette also sells fully built up bikes. Many times fully built bikes are a good deal because of the manufacturer’s buying power. When a big manufacturer can buy 1,000 Mavic wheelsets, the vendor is going to give them a deal compared to when we purchase the exact same wheelset. When you think about all the components on the bike being purchased in this fashion it makes some sense to consider buying a complete bike versus building up bikes piece by piece.

Sette’s mountain bike lineup includes 4 full suspensions and one hardtail. The fs bikes include a XC oriented bike called the Sette Ace to a durable X-7, Monarch 3.1 all mountain bike with 6″ of travel aptly named the Sette Flite.

  1. I am a huge fan of Sette products. Their Impact Suite saved me from 2 really bad crashes, the impact knee/shin guards have done the same. Awesome products and impressive prices.
