Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@WhatAboutBob: exactly. And the way I look at it you can spend a crazy amount of money on just about anything these days. People spend $500 on jeans... At the end of the day we just pay the amount we want to and can personally justify

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@Squeakybb: fair enough I forgot to mention that I was making a comparison specifically to supercross bikes, not making a sweeping generalization of the moto industry. But if you want to get into the economics of pricing there are two main reasons dirt bikes like a KTM 300 are so cheap when compared to a enduro mtb like the one in this review. Number one, off the showroom floor dirtbikes are made up almost entirely of house brand components which cut down alot on the overall cost. Whereas 95% of a top of the line mountain bike is made up of third-party components which costs the manufacturer of the bike more, in turn costs us more. Number two: the volume of dirtbikes produced is at a much higher level than that of mountain bikes. Which again has an affect on pricing. If you’re looking for a mountain bike thats made up entirely of house brand components and is mass produced it will probably fall in the sub-$3000usd range. Not $8000+. If its your opinion that $8000 bikes are a rip off then I guess its a good thing that nobodies forcing you to buy one and that there are much cheaper options out there. So long as your having a good time you’re winning.

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@browntown40: depends what level of performance moto you are looking at. Sure spending $8000+ on a mountain biking is alot. But if you have that kind of money you’re essentially getting the same level bike as the top pro athletes in our sport. Whereas in motocross if you wanted to go out and buy the same bike as the pros, well for starters you can’t. Second of all if you could you would probably be spending $50-100k on it. All a matter of perspective

Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk’s Contra - Video
@brianpark: as the old say goes; your going to get criticized regardless, so you might as well do what ever the f^*k you want. Personally I love the way Rupert & Brandon interpret riding in their edits, and its not just because it’s Brandon riding. If they produced a edit together with a different rider I know I would enjoy it just as much.

Carson is one of the nicest dudes you will meet. So I wouldn’t go assuming from one video clip where he had a right to be a little frustrated
