I absolutely ADORE my Collegiate. :) I've got the Diploma close contact convertible right now and I'm just madly in love with it...I'm actually planning on buying an Intellect myself, when I have the funds! I've had a couple friends ride in it and they all agree that it's a wonderful value for what I paid for it. I got mine very lightly used (it's a 2009 model), and for the saddle + an entire gullet kit, shipping from California to here in Eastern Canada, and good quality fittings, it ended up only being about $700. Could not have been more pleased! Even a friend with a $2500 Barnsby adored it. :) I'm definitely on the Collegiate bandwagon!
