- Most expensive MTB yet? – $12,000 S-Works
It’s not really for buying though (though no doubt some will sell), it’s much more about having a flagship model that people dream of but then buy the cheaper (only £2k maybe 🙂 ) model that supposedly shares the same DNA.
It’s selling the dream. Standard marketing technique.Posted 3 years ago
Interesting they’re speccing the RS1, their Futureshock/SID hybrid was impressively light, the RS1 is pretty chunky – that’s got to add a pound onto the weight of their flagship race bike, odd choice.
It’s got a ‘mini dropper post’ too.
I guess they’re going for the fast trail bike market, with the World Cup variant (I’m guessing) having XX1, SID/Futureshock fork and no dropper.Posted 3 years ago
Is that with electronical XTR? If not that will add another chunk on top when it’s available
Looks like mechanical.
I think they have to make their race bikes available to the public.
That’s not their race bike – there’s a World Cup variant with less travel, steeper angles, fatter chainstays, single ring transmission etc.Posted 3 years ago
$12000 is about £7000. Top-end bikes have been available for years at around £7k,
Indeed, the outgoing S-Works is £7200. I suspect this will be more, just because they always increase year on year!
What are those forks?
Rock Shox RS1
Is this the one StinkingDylan’s getting?
Genuine lol at that, well done. And no, it doesn’t have XT 😐Posted 3 years agojoolsburgerMember
If you were a millionaire had an amazing house, car and so forth but were also into dicking about in the woods what exactly would be wrong with a 7k bike? I can’t justify 7k on a bike but there are loads for who 7k is peanuts best not to get jealous and/or stressed. It’s not that obscene really, it’s a lovely thing made by a market leader to the highest standards.Posted 3 years agoStuESubscriber
If I was going to spend £7k on a bike it would be one of thesePosted 3 years ago

$12000 is about £7000. Top-end bikes have been available for years at around £7k, so it’s no more expensive than the ridiculous top end stuff that gets showcased every year, is it?
It is not going to be £7k though for one minute – not with VAT, import, dealer etc fees.
By the time it is in the UK it will be close to £12k and nowhere near £7k.
Absolutely mental price for a bicycle, and I love tech stuff.Posted 3 years ago
