Development Story - Norco's New DH Bike
I've had this argument about 1x drivetrains before... Another example where we're being asked to pay more for simplicity and less moving parts... The prices aren't dropping to the point where entry level bikes can have them too.. and surely it will bring down costs for frame manufacturer's to only build 1x compatible frames only throughout their ranges? Surely if carbon frames were produced more prolifically that would make it more accessible to everyone? I know molds have a lifespan but doesn't economics of scale come into play here? No more need for tooling and equipment for both materials would also save costs surely? I see the day coming when aluminium is going to be a boutique material like steel or titanium... But that day seems very very far away at this point.

Shimano Announces Affordable Deore M6000 Group and a Wide Range SLX Option
@jseranne: That does certainly make sense and I can say that I went through that phase myself years ago... but again why is there this substantial hike in price? And surely the amount of demo riding one can do these days you'd be able to ride before you buy and see what feels best? and surely it would be cheaper to just upsize the front chain ring than to change an entire drivetrain as you get fitter?

Shimano Announces Affordable Deore M6000 Group and a Wide Range SLX Option
My question is this... Why can't there be a 1x setup in Deore? Obviously it won't the as lightweight and fine-tuned as the more expensive siblings, but at the same time surely less parts will bring down the price? Why are 1x's so expensive to begin with?
