Wren's Inverted Fork - Interbike 2018
@VTwintips: so do you also complain about people not letting you into their weddings/funerals/other? Also the Cyclocross race doesn’t require you to pre-register since we seem to be comparing competitive events

First Ride: Yeti’s New SB150
@huebs037: I’m not saying it isn’t a ‘boutique’ frame by a ‘boutique’ company and to your point they do sell like hot cakes especially here in CO. My point was that a high end shock on the top tier frame isn’t necessarily a reason for a $3800 frameset. A good example of this is Intense who are arguably less boutique now that they are neither handmade and are consumer direct. A Carbine SL with a RS super deluxe is $2200, a quick look says the Super is a bit cheaper to find than a X2 but not to the point of being $1600 cheaper. So let’s look really boutique at a brand like Unno. The Burn is a $5k frameset, but it’s handmade in a first world country, uses a shock which from what I found starts at $650 as is also more boutique than Fox or RS. Does this justify the $5k price tag, to me certainly more so than a frame made in Taiwan and equipped with a relatively run of the mill (but still excellent shock). And if you want to argue a bike/company that’s popular in CO (at least the front range) let’s look at Guerilla Gravity. A Smash with semi custom paint, welded by a guy I can go and talk to, and equipped with a Push 11-6 is $3260, still $540 cheaper than the SB150 which at that point is a matter of material cost. Honestly I don’t care who rides what or what material your frame is made of but arguing that the X2 and Yeti boutique are not great justifications for an almost $4k price tag.

It could be argued in that case that Bionicon does it better...

Introducing the Calibre Line 10 - Video
You know my biggest complaint is that they aren't available in the US. I have several friends who are looking for a bike similar to this, and sure there's the used market. But currently in my area there isn't anything that's not stupidly over priced (1-2 grand for a 10 year old bike with deore/x5). Props to Calibre for at least trying to get something out there that would be awesome for those looking to not drop a ton of money on a decent spec.
