New bike prices are getting absolutely ridiculous now. 6 grand for a push bike is nuts. In fact I reckon anything much over a grand is stupid money.
New car prices are getting absolutely ridiculous now. $1,000,000 for a Mclaren F1 is nuts. Infact I reckon anything over $15,000 is stupid money.
Can you think of a broad area of retail where you don't have the full range of prices? Mobile phones cost between £10 and £700. TVs cost between £100 and £10,000. Every one has diminishing returns, pick where you want to be on the scale and buy it.
I'm content spending about £2-3k on a modern full sus mountain bike. If I earned double my salary I'd be tempted to spend more.
