Marin Launches New Rift Zone Alloy Range
@bananowy: Ah yes, you caught the last train before the price hike. Good times. I got my Tyee around the same time and shortly after that the same configuration jumped in price by almost €600. Unreal.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
@hi-dr-nick: Lol, not even close. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not saying RM is a shit bike, not at all. If the owners are happy, that's awesome and it's their money to spend after all. I'm saying that the realistic price for RM, SC, Yeti, Pivot and the crowd of give-me-a-break price-taggers is about half the asking price. But I, me personally, still wouldn't give that much for a bike. And fortunately, I don't have to. There are still manufacturers who offer fantastic top-spec bikes for less than that. I was lucky and managed to buy my dream bike for $3500 just before this lunacy took off. A year in and for the first time ever, I haven't found a single component that I'm itching to replace before it breaks or wears out, or wishing for different geometry here or there. By the time I'm in the market again, I hope things will have settled again. But that's a potential problem for another time.

Review: The 2023 Yeti SB120 is a Comfortable Trail Cruiser
@kperras: Of all the overpriced bikes out there, Rocky Mountain truly baffles me the most. At least Yeti used to be at the top of the pack for a while there years back and although I can't see the value personally, at least I understand the motivation for some to still look at Yeti, no matter how misguided I may find it. And same for Santa Cruz, even if overpriced, I do kind of see where the appeal may come from. But unless I missed an important history lesson, Rocky Mountain is just... such a whatever bike. Fortunately, there are still manufacturers making exciting bikes that have not drank this ridiculous kool-aid and I hope they won't. As a consumer, I take this price gouging practice personally and would not buy any bikes from manufacturers who do this even if they come to their senses later on and build some amazing bikes. I'd rather give my money to someone who treats their customers as something other than the next wallet to pillage.

Opinion: Why You Shouldn't Care What the Pros Ride
Hate to break it to you but your comment reads like someone is justifying their 6k+ purchase :)

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Decide Which Bike To Buy?
@Utter: It also helps that Tyee is a bomb of a bike and you get close to nothing extra by shelling out extra thousands.
