One observation I've made since I ride MTB and a little bmx. MTB and road bikes are crazy expensive. Bmx bikes not so much. The average bmx bike is $500 and $700 - $1000 is the high end. Obviously it is more nuanced than this and I know there is probably more technology put into the MTB and road bikes but it really is mostly about who is buying the bikes. Doctors, lawyers (money people) are buying Mtb and road bikes. In general people with no money are buying bmx. That's why the prices are so different. They charge what they can get away with.I just sold a BMW motorcycle with modern technology and about 11K miles on it for $3800. Thats a real 1200cc machine with 100 hp and the quality to do an around-the-world trek. You mean with that money and another $1200 I could buy a good bicycle? The BMW had full suspension too. I’m living a fantasy World aren’t I?
I concede my $180 rack is “rather inexpensive” Who knew? I now feel shamed.
Now I'll stop hijacking this thread.
