8% across the board, considering 6% of consumer shopping cart increase is not that bad at all;

Also I bought new bikes this year ( 4 of them) for reasonable prices, i would say shipping was out of the range

Noticed, that the more travel bike have, the longer rims typically last so same rim on spur and on the scout even with rather trails for the following will last longer

Why not to use integrated dropper in that case?

I like the idea of minimizing amount bearings that bike uses, however same design could be achieved with traditional shock

Added reply in a thread Re: Spoomer ca 2017. Anyone gone from 29er back to 27.5? 8/11/2021 2:39 PM

For me it is more about bb drop / stack height, you can achieve desirable parameters on both wheel sizes; Since I have long legs and 6'1 height I do prefer 29' since more bb drop and higher front end achieved;

Brake pads, easier to buy new brake rather brake pads ( formula brakes in US) so it is not common product anyway

My bikes builded to last, i more worried about service lines to ger fork/shock service or lack of brake pads - those are kinda essential

DC forks looks ugly, however outperform any SC at any circumstances; I believe in 3-5 years we (as consumers) will adopt DC fork's for enduro and trail usage; however marketing department need to did huge brainwash

typically fork cost arm and leg for the dirt jump bike + probably frame; I would say for 1500 I would deficiently go custom route for the DJ bike;
