This reminds me of the bike snobery back in the late 1990's when everyone tried to justify in their mind paying $3,000 for a mountain bike. I didn't have it like that back then but I could keep up with them on my $500 GT that I bought from Walmart.
Go for it then. Go kick a little a$$ with it.
Not sure what you’re looking for here. You ask. We answer. You crap all over us. Personally, I wouldn’t waste space in my garage with a bike like that but that’s just my opinion, which is what I thought you were seeking here. If not, maybe go write a blog post or something?
Edit: a few of my less salty thoughts, for what they are worth, are as follows:
1. I would not be comfortable riding the terrain I ride with that bike. It would not be enjoyable, worrying constantly whether something was going to explode on impact, or whether I was going to get stranded in a remote area in bad circumstances, even if neither of those things happened.
2. I suspect that the rear d and shock are not manufactured by Shimano and RockShox. The online description of this bike and it components, is a complete fail.
3. Replacement components - how are you going to get that fork serviced/rebuilt? What about the myriad of other non-standard components? What is the shock size? Is a replacement shock readily available?
4. Electronics. Lots of things to go wrong here.
5. No LBS support/product knowledge.
6. I don’t enjoy riding bikes that don’t have decent forks. As I mentioned, it’s not clear how easily this one can be replaced, even if one were inclined to sink more money into this purchase.
7. I am pretty picky about my saddle and tires. I am pretty sure I would not be happy with either on this bike. Wheels too. What about tubeless? Likely out of the question unless…more money. And hubs - if the rear hub goes, then what? Pay to get the wheel rebuilt? What size is that bar?
I can go on and on. In my view, these are all very real concerns. They don’t amount to chasing ghosts.
Regardless of whatever success you may have had conquering overspending snobs back in the good old days, if you are a serious rider, I doubt this bike would last very long on onything but paved pathways. But like I said - go for it!
