#!markdown I built up a Knolly Chilcotin, my 26″ dream bike with 90% new parts for under 4 grand last fall. Reverb, Pike and CCDBA, XT everything, WTB I25's on Hope hubs. A build like that in 650b? Upwards of 7500. Screw that, my bike beats plenty of 27.5 and 29″ wheels at every race I take it to. Plus I could damn near buy two for what most of those people paid. Sad thing is, my next bike will be 650b. It'll pretty much have to be if I want parts. The bike industry is playing us all.
