"$715 USD bicycle you're not going to see a 1x system or a clutch derailleur"... Looking at my $650 bike with both plus tubeless ready rims and tires. Of course that's in the USA so maybe you guys in Canada pay a bit more.

This guy has a douchebag mentality trying to get people to buy an overpriced bikes that's not even carbon fiber.. And one thing you want to do when you buying expensive bike is check out the specs to make sure that it doesn't have a shity press fit bottom bracket cause PF bottom bracket start to creak. A threaded cartridge bottom brackets are better and easier to Serve Yourself..
VanCan
VanCan Pred 3 dnevi
A bit harsh, Danny. I didn't set these prices, I don't even own the shop. This video is simply demonstrating the current pricing of mountain bikes. Although I also prefer threaded, a press-fit BB is annoying at best and hardly the end of the world.

To get a 2k plus bike it better have a built in testicle massager. Cant take a hard tail on rough trails? I've seen some riders do some really rough trails on a hard tail and they aren't pro's and dont even race. They just bash and have fun. I'm sure 3-5k is "budget" for someone, but not anyone I hang out with.

How capable would you say that Storm Frame is? I picked up the exact same bike a little over a year ago now and want to go all out. Air Fork, Tubeless Rims and tires, and a 1x11 Drivetrain. Can this frame be a great hardtail or is it best to sell and get a new bike, which is nearly impossible right now.

I sorta roll my eyes every time I hear somebody say "modern geo". I wish people would realize that it's more a selling point than anything else. Just a few years ago, bike geeks would frown and give dirty looks when you mention mid or high pivots but lower pivots were the "in" thing. Today, brands are shifting to back to mid and high pivots and calling that the "in" thing. Modern geos have been progressively going more slack, including even XC bikes.... which completely contradicts the concept of snappier handling. Yet, it's the "hip" thing today, the slacker the better, so it's considered "modern geo". Just give it another year and it'll regress to being less slack, and that will be "modern geo". To sum up, if you're a first time buyer, don't get sold on what's considered a modern geometry as a selling point. In other news, great vid :)
MTBr of SoCal
MTBr of SoCal Pred 23 dnevi
@VanCan LOL, nobody said anything about conspiracy. It's a matter of what's the selling point for the year (or couple of years). It's a matter of fact. This is with anything sold to consumers, what the current trend is today might have been the silly thing few years back and vise versa. Some top racers still use "outdated" geos. When people use to say, full sus were "needed" for any real AM races, they were proven wrong with riders tearing things up with hard tails. Remember when everyone said you can't win a DH race if you don't go carbon? How many recent racers won on a Alum bike?? Ya, alooot.
VanCan
VanCan Pred 23 dnevi
If that were true, racers would still run those old bikes. Not everything is a conspiracy.

To even think that making a frame with the right geometry cost more is a true testament to the company's brainwashing the consumer into why things cost more.that's not to say that spending more cant get you more diminishing returns is very real in almost all industries
VanCan
VanCan Pred 26 dnevi
There's no conspiracy here, it's more about what the bike is designed for. You won't find Enduro geometry on a $500 bike because no components at that price point would stand the abuse.

As someone who has gotten back into mountain biking in the last few years, I can say that regardless of how much value and capabilities new bikes bring, nothing is more shocking than shopping for your first "real" mountain bike. If you're not used to the idea of a bike costing more than your first car, it's a bit overwhelming.
honkydook
honkydook Pred 3 dnevi
The simple fact that it costs more than your car should be alarming. These not only have less materials used in them, but many mass produced parts. The only real work putting these together is welding the frame and painting it. You can see exactly how much work is done putting these together on youtube here. It's literally a few hours of actual hands on work, and less steel than what's in your car door. Yet somehow it's costing you 3000+$ for a 'real' bike. If I can go to Walmart and pick up a bike for 200-400$, all assembled, and ready to go, and that's still profitable for the company making it. How much profit do you think these bike companies are making with their 3000$ model bikes..? 200%? 150%?

It's actually all about suspension. If you compare that with a motocross bike suspension, you can go up to 5000 USD with the front fork only... Regarding frame material... It doesn't really matter for enduro or downhill. More weight - faster descent. So aluminum is more sensible choice for frames and wheels. Different story regarding XC bike...

I'll spend a steel enduro mountain bike, durable and easy to weld or ez to repair.

I get the whole "Wow are you crazy, you could've bought a car with that money" response all of the time when I tell how much I have spent on bikes. I currently own 3 bikes all over $6k. It basically comes down to this: If you are the type of person that is going to ride your bike once every couple of months, around the block in your neighborhood or at the community park, by all means got to Target and buy that cheap bike. If you are the type of person that rides several times a week at very technical trails with crazy downhill sections where you are actually risking your life, you'd better be spending at least $2k, and that's a minimum. In life, with everything, you get what you pay for. Buying a cheap bike versus an expensive bike is like going to the hood for a $10 piece of azz to a $400 piece. One is going to be quite a bit safer than the other.
Thomas Kimball
Thomas Kimball Pred 24 dnevi
@John DeF if you say so. I personally don't know any avid riders on $400 bikes or riders that make 30k riding 6k bikes. I do know there are people who most likely ride more than once a month that do more work making replies to other people's comments on SLtv. Good luck to you and your $400 bike Chum.

what about a used bike? I think if you enjoy doing maintenance it's worth checking out. not the best time right now because used bikes tend to be overpriced because of demand, but if it has a good frame and solid components it could got a 2010 rocky mountain sxc 70 which was 4300 usd back then for 750usd plus it had several upgrades full deore xt brakes/handlebar/tubeless tires. spent less than 100usd for pedals, dropper, shorter stem I had a few issues with drivetrain like a couple broken teeth and now considering a ~300usd 1x11 or 1x12 shimano upgrade geometry is not modern but it was all mountain bike at the time so slacker than average plus it's XL and running 100mm dropper at the lowest height. Air suspension is great and long travel at 160mm (fox talas 36/thx air 5.0) wheels are 26 but not a problem for me . maybe until I try a modern 29 full suspension? with all the money I saved on the purchase I could buy tools/learn to service the components myself and I'm a bit less scared of breaking things or doing mistakes when I'm wrenching on the bike than if it was a $3k+ new bike. If something breaks other than the frame, I still have money to fix it and possibly upgrade at the same time. my only advice would be to be super careful when you buy a used bike and not be too cheap. my riding buddy got a decent 2006 XC hardtail for $400 but broke the chain on his first ride, his brakes are noisy and not powerful. parts are pretty expensive so even if it looks you are saving a few hundreds upfront, I'd say spend at least 1000 usd on a good used bike not too old with boost thru axle which is one of the only things you won't be able to upgrade later. I have thru axle in the front and QR in the back and it limits the hubs I can put in the rear. it makes going microspline complicated. if you are not 100% sure to commit then start with renting or get a super cheap bike first, and go checkout your local trails/parks. when you have a better idea of the kind of riding you like, and have learned the basics of maintenance, flip to a better bike
