#!markdown 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.
