Your point re. tech is still selectively valid though. True, the average bike
today is a lot better than five years ago but with hindsight you could build
an (aluminum//26″) bike using all components from pre-2010 and but for a
slightly higher BB, slightly steeper HTA, and a couple pounds of weight it
would hold its own with a current 6″ bike.
There are some products like King hubs, Hope brakes (small caveat for
maintenance required), Fox RC2 forks, Shimano HT2 cranks that have been
largely unchanged for years -- and if you get on a fully serviced/properly
functioning example are competitive with current products.
