@necros: Sorry bikes aren't as cheap as you want them to be. And yet, companies like YT, Canyon, Whyte, etc can sell top shelf bikes for $2-5K and make profit. And these aren't Hufffys.... Lets say that the $2100 net is legit. And sure, rent, labor, etc. But how many of these do they sell in a year? The profits are not insubstantial.

@brianpark: That being said, we're going to be covering a wider spread of price-points in this year's bike reviews Excellent.

YT Industries Releases Autobiographical Video, New Branding & 2018 Range
@RideTahoe707: Don't get me wrong, TR makes killer bikes and I love what the company is doing. I've visited the HQ in Bellingham and they are great people. I was looking at the Smuggler, so when I was comparing numbers, that was my baseline. Although I ended up with the Jeffsy 27.5, lol. Did a quick look up and came up with these: Dimension Scout Jeffsy smuggler TT Length 632 625 625 Reach 475 460 475 Stack 617 611 624 ST Length 450 480 450 CS Length 425 435 450 HT Angle 65 66.5/67 66 ST Angle 75 75/75.5 75.8 BB Drop 20 15 35 Wheelbase 1218 1200 1213 HT Length 130 125 110 BB Height 335 341/347 340 Fork Offset 37 42 43 Standover 695 752 705 So, some similarities in fork offset, reach, heat tube and seat tube angles and wheelbase. Obviously some splits on tube lengths, but the geometrys are remarkably close. At the end of the day it was value for money for me. The close out prices on their models was too good to pass up. Would have been near $4k to do it with TR. :)

Correct. At least everything but the Capra. No news on that. But, it isn't surprising considering their price point. If they spend too much on R&D trying to keep up with the Jones's, they'll lose the ability to keep the prices down. Funny thing is, though, if you look at the Jeffsy geometry, including fork offsets, they are in year 3 now of where a company like Transition is just getting to with SBG. So, it seems like they don't need to get too excited on staying current.
