Certain activities really attract the anti-capitalism crowd and mountain biking is certainly one of those.
In certain product segments there needs to be price controls, staple food items, essential health care, etc...
A totally optional top of the line bicycle with literally thousands of competitors is not one of those. If I was in charge of Spesh, or any bike manufacturer, I'd seek to maximize profits in these times, because it never lasts. You do that by providing class leading product, reducing operating expenses, and selling your product for the max amount that results in demand just outstripping supply.
I know this, not one whiner here would offer to pay extra for a bike or gear that is being sold at a loss because it's overaged, unpopular, or whatever.
The reality is that the market determines the value of these fancy toys.
Price controls lead to inflation and scarcity. This is an economic law demonstrated repeatedly since ancient times. It is almost always better to let commodities set their own prices by market forces than to impose an arbitrary price. This is one of the reasons (but not the only one, of course) that rent is so expensive in areas with price controls on rent. If you dictate prices which are often below profitability for owners, they will take the products off the market or come up with new ways to sell them to avoid regulation. The role of government should be only to regulate unfair business practices such as monopolies, collusion, and insider trading.
And truthfully, for almost everybody on MTBR bicycles are strictly luxuries. I'm not losing sleep over a ten percent increase in bike prices. I'm sure the market will head down next year.
