IT just looks expensive.

A friend just bought a Spark on my recommendation and he saw the new one on the floor for R170k.

Impossible… Bikes are only landing in September (I think).

I wouldn't know I wasn't there but don't see a reason he would lie about it. 

He is just mistaken then. We don’t have dates on when they are arriving in SA yet, will know on Monday. But it won’t be before August at the earliest.

She broke her arm a few weeks ago AFAIK. So she's probably on the bench.

Kate announced yesterday that she is not participating at Leogang due to her broken arm. She's probably focusing on the Olympics now as her chances of a overall World Cup podium is very slim now.

New frame is way too nice to buy the previous generation imo

Never been a scott spark fan, until now.

Don't people feel ripped off when paying over 170k for a mountain bike?

When you actually add up the cost of the components, wheels and suspension you left with a questionable cost for the frame. 

6 months of hard riding and half the components are toast.

 

 

I don't know if people feel ripped off, I've never been in that boat.  I squealed when I paid that much for my second hand car.

So if they pay 169k for a mtb they won't feel ripped off?

 

*still struggling to find comic sans*
