@Keit: I paid 3500E for my bike. Regular person would pay 6k E for it. If I saw you on the street today I would gladly punch you in the face. Then kick you on the ground right in your stomach. You piece of crap

@Keit: the pricing is disproportionate because they produce stuff that makes no sense, because people buy it. Gladly. And they produce that stuff having limited access too tooling compared to large car and motorcycle companies. Then you have an issue like moto and automotive are subsidized by the state. The scale is not comparable by any means. Carbon bars, cranks, ceramic bearings and electronic shifting - Where do you find such useless stuff on a moto for 10k? Again 3,5k for a full suspension bicycle that offers 95% available performance, is not much to ask. Everything above 4k is masturbation. Unless you want to pay for a thing as Starling or Sick Bicycles or Unno which at laest for me, is understandable and admirable. You can also go on AliExpress and build a carbon bike for 3,5k... then I genuinely wish you to crash due to breaking carbon bar for 40$ and getting 30$ carbon seat post in your bum. Then I hope carbon splinter gives you ass cancer so you need to walk around with colostomy bag.

@meph: don’t bother, he owns a color matched Starling with carbon rims and says bikes are too expensive. It’s like a dude who buys a Lambo and complains about fuel consumption. And then he gets supported by another dude who is 50, has owned plenty of expensive bikes and to make it even better, effectively calls me a millenial with 1st world problems. As usual, when a bunch of folks find “something that is wrong with the whole world” it means they are bloody hipocrites, accusing other of their own treats.

@Keit: 3400€ - you’ll easily build a more than decent bike under 5,5k on that frame. At least as long as you stay away from stupid crap like carbon bars or rims SLX 11sp groupset 300€, brakes 250€, wheelset hope+EX471/FlowMk3 400€, dropper 250€, controls 200€, tyres+ sealant 100€, Fork 650€. Boom! Waaay better than some Santa Cruz in posh build. On boutique frame. Get some Commencal Meta on a sale out and you cut the price by 2k. So for 3,5k you get a custom bike that stands for 98% of what’s possible with best bike tech...

https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/13652713/ Costed me 3500€... a regular, smart person, with smaller mouth (paying full price for the frame) would not pay more than 5,5k. And I still paid 250$ too much for that stupid Hope Crankset. But well... Enve costs... so does Di2 or Eagle...

@mhoshal: http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/mountain-bikes/product/review-norco-bigfoot-9025/ Let’s say that 899 for 2008 Bigfoot is MSRPn not a blow out sale on pricepoint. Now let’s look at a comparable bike for MSRP at 1500€ and analyze it: https://26bikes.com/shop/bikes/enduro-allmountain/prod/dartmoor-hornet-2017 Better geometry, better brakes, better drivetrain and comparable if not a better fork (55 was an absolute crap). Now I can list some more stuff: in 2005 I bought new Hayes MAG brakes for 180$ each (today I get new Zees in that price on bike components de) and new Manitou Black Comp for 350$ (Two years ago I paid that for a new Reba). Then in 2006 I bought 66RC2X for 800$ on sale. 100$ cheaper than Lyrik last year. Performance of both forks is uncomparable. Over 2lbs lighter, real damping. 2008 - I buy a Nomad frame for ca 2000$. 2012 - Whole bike costed me over 3500$. Ermm... Capra, Spectral, Radons? Far better than my 2008 Nomad?
