I know about flatlandfuel.com and I know how everyone loves it there but I'm looking to get the Opsis cheaper. I'm going to Grad school soon, so every dollar counts.

A lot of competitor sites of flatlandfuel run promotion codes and free shipping over a certain amount which can get me the Opsis pretty cheap but they're all sold out. That's why I want to know if the Opsis is still being produced. I don't mind waiting a little bit. This is in no way offense to FLF. I know how much they support the sport.

So my question is, is there an ongoing production of the DK Opsis?

Well, Pat at FF said that the June batch would be the last this year.  I don't know if that means for them, or what DK is producing.   I am thinking that's it for the year...especially if everyone is sold out of them.  I think DK has a wonderful thing going with the Opsis, they NEED to make more.  If everyone keeps selling out of them, why wouldn't they?  It's in demand, because it's a great starter bike, and people can't throw down a ton of money all the time.  Which leads me to this...

I think that all companies should take note.  People need to be able to afford to get into flatland(hell, any form of BMX)...if not, that's what will keep new people to the sport from ever starting.  Seems to me, that a lot of complete bikes are way to expensive, and don't always hold up that well. 

Anywho, did you check Dans Comp?  I don't many other places that sell it.  Are you here in the United States?

Yea, I wish DK would meet the demands. Hopefully they will produce more of the Opsis.

I live in NYC.

I checked Dans Comp a couple months ago and they had the Opsis for $339.99, and if I remember correctly $25 shipping. They also had a 15% off coupon and a free mesh bag with purchase. I wanted to buy the Opsis then but I was filling out a lot of school applications (and paying their fees) that I couldn't justify spending more money on a bike. Now that I know I am accepted and will have to move, I would like to bring a bike with me to keep me entertained since where I'm going won't be anything like NYC. I hope the Opsis is still being produced and will stock online retailers. I have my fingers crossed.

if the opsis isnt available, there are other alternatives that can probably meet your price range

you can look into the militant ff (which is what i have right now)
or you can find a relatively nice bike on the marketplace forum

I found this in the marketplace here on Global.

Pat at Flatland Fuel has the 2010 models, and a few of the 09 models left.  As far as I can tell...they are the same...except for paint.  09 models are discounted...snatch em up!  I think DK has a wonderful thing going with the Opsis.  We NEED these beginner bikes.

Minor changes, they went to 36h rims and 1in diameter pegs, used to be 48h rims and 2in diameter pegs.

Oh, yes indeed...I did notice the pegs, but didn't notice the 36's.  Nice...kind of brings it up to modern standards a bit.  I honestly think this is the best beginner bike out right now.

Look and feel are subjective.  The price between the two isn't that great.  We are talking 20 bucks.

If you ask me, the parts are about the same in quality.  The DK does have 3 piece cranks, but cranks can be replaced.  If you like the frame better, then that would be what I based my decision on unless you really where super price sensitive.  I think that the Opsis is the best deal around, but all of the newer complete bikes on the low end are pretty good values. 

You probably won't go wrong spending or saving a few extra bucka if you just buy the bike that seems to have the features you need, and the looks you want.
