    Considering that it is just a frame set, and that it is steel, yeah, they can sell a quality product at that price. In a world where aluminum, carbon fiber, and titanium are most popular frame materials, good steel frames are not that expensive anymore.

    performancebike.com USED TO SELL (discontinued a few months ago) a sweet aluminum hardtail frame for $150.

    I just scored a pile of parts & accessories at CRC.com for a little under $300 -- 100mm fork, long-travel rear shock, XTR cables, a workstand, and some cold-weather headgear!

    deals ARE out there, depending on what you're looking for....
