The fork length is similar to that of a 100mm fork.

(Please help here more knowledgeable peeps,) I think it’s axle to crown length.

Axle to crown on a 29er rigid fork is more around the 470mm mark

Can someone explain to me how that bike costs R185 000 in the first place though?

Like that groupset is R30k, the wheels are maybe R25k, the fork maybe R25k, and all the other bits and pieces maybe R10k... So thats R90k all together brand new. 

Is an S-Works frame really R90000??? 

And those are all new prices for the kit. R185k is the second hand price.

You tried to get a quote on that "S" badge ?

Yea he obviously means the fork is 100mm suspension corrected..so as mentioned…around 470-490mm axle to crown.

Well, they are over R200k new...


R185k is maybe what you might negotiate if you were a good customer at one of the bigger stores, so I don't think this is a good price.
But this might come down to a stock availability again - there are none in the shops, and if you want one, this is what they cost.
Scroll down to the bottom of the advert and you see the other bikes in Related Ads are all S-Works at around the same price.

The frame module (Frame and Fork) is R90 K
The AXS gruppo includes a Quark power meter, so is a bit more than R30K
Etc.

You cant put the term 'value for money' or apply any sense to products in this price range (think high end cars, watches, boats etc).

Suspension Travel is how much the top bit attached to the frame moves in relation to the bottom bit attached to the wheel when you go over the bumpy bits attached to the earth. 

This fork is made purely of carbon fiber..... so I'm gonna guess that the travel is maybe 1mm, and that's only if you weigh 150kg and go full send over 50m gap jump to a flat landing.... so the 100mm travel figure is "ambitious".

Pics with Ultegra, Description DA.

 

Description says Bontrager wheels, Pic has Enve wheels.

 

The list continues.

 

With that description it's well over a 150k bike being advertised for 43k??

Missed this one but probably the same oke who advertised a Cervelo with major discrepancies.

That was also subsequently removed.
