What a joke, you can literally build this exact same bike WITH MUCH BETTER COMPONENTS for under 4K, and that is being generous

“We found out that weight was a major issue for a bike.” See? You can tell these are bike experts. I understand that their design process also uncovered that ROUND is the best shape for a wheel, and that pedals were very important in the overall riding experience.

I totally want pretentious fashion designers building my bikes. And I want mechanical engineers designing my suits.

these guys are living in the 80's....the music, the praise of hydraulic disc brake and carbon fiber, and the cheesy acting of the riders waving really convinces me they are stuck in the 80's and the price reflects it.
