Yes but look over all the dealers that sell s works or similar, you can count on 1 hand how many they sell … there not popular like the lower models. I paid 6250 for my 2019 expert and now the 22 expert is 8750.. just for a fancy tcu and smaller back wheel , there has to come a point where prices get realistic. Even the 2nd hand market is bonkers right now.Thing is, my LBS had four of the Specialized at £12,995 and sold them all before they'd even been delivered to the store
While there are people prepared to pay the money, manufacturers will offer them for sale.
At first I thought it was the silliest thing I'd ever heard. But after hearing Rob gush about the performance, I'm willing to rethink my skepticism. Interestingly, I just did some googling as I'm typing this, and it appears that Yeti has used this idea previously in an eccentric configuration. Now they're using a six-bar implementation.I want yeti linkage in my life.
Not to pick a fight with a man that I am sure will know better BUT...Levo S-Works is £13K
Trek Rail 9.9 AXS is £12.5K
SC Bullit is £11.7K
This new top end Yeti is £11.9K
It slots in to the extreme priced ebikes.
They're all a SHIT load of money.
I honestly think if you were to cut me in half I'd have the SC logo running through me...Rejected :
Yeah the UK gets a weird conversion on pricing. Like lot of things!Not to pick a fight with a man that I am sure will know better BUT...
Levo S-Works has a better spec, if only the Wheels being carbon
Trek Rail 9.9 AXS looks a better spec and again comes with carbon wheels
SC Bullit is just better... and comes with carbon wheels running i9 hubs
I really liked the Yeti and you video was great. Just those wheels... DT1700;s... OMG. OK if you're buying a mid level Canyon or something but a flagship Yeti??? That's just wrong! Shimano XT isn't bad but surely XTR on that bike?
Just seems they cut some costs
My point wasn't that the DT wheels are bad really - though they aren't my cup of tea. It was more that a £12k bike is coming with a fairly basic wheel and the 350 hub isn't exactly great - though I will accept there is a little personal preference there again.With the recent changes to their alloy wheel line up, isn't the new DT Swiss 1700 now their highest level alloy wheel set?
I know previously that the alloy line up was
and now with their recently released line up its:
So the 1700 is now their top end alloy wheel, with 350 hub and 36t
ThanksJust seen the video, the quality of the post production is getting better and better Rob. Don't know who's doing your post work or if it's you, but it's excellent. Keep it coming mate.
I'm struggling with the price tag and that Ep8 rattle I never got over; but as with SB5/6 I had, it's an incredible bike.
Fancy naming one of them after an Italian dish...Would be interesting to see how it rides back to back against the 2022 Mondrakers ? (750wh/29")
