There is a long list of things i would buy before a $8500 DH bike. Cars, Trucks, Dirt Bikes, and maybe i would even spend the money on RIDING MY BIKE MORE!!! In all seriousness thought i cant believe that trek is going to make money by producing these frames. Our sport is small and the market for super expensive super high-end carbon frames is just not there. I got to believe that the majority of carbon road bikes are sold to people who ride once maybe twice a month and never race. How many people do you all know that just ride and want a $8500 bike so they can cruse their local trails?
