Are you saying your Thorn Nomad complete from Robin and Andy will cost $5K?
Have a look at the component list I posted near the start of this thread. Mostly pretty good quality gear ( I could have gone for the Single Digit SL brakes) and it all cost me $3.8K by sourcing my own components through on-line stores, much of it from St John Street Cycles. I happily put the bike together myself - LBS did the wheelbuild for me. Consider your options carefully.
What will make your Thorn $5K ?
