For a lot of people, including myself it's _very_ hard to spend CAD $5,000+ on a bike and that seems to be about the entry point these days for a solid bike. Most bike reviews are actually on models upwards of that cost...and sometimes way, way upwards. I seriously have no idea who buys these types of bikes except for doctors and dentists. I have three kids, a mortgage, investments, groceries, vehicles, insurance and all of the other costs associated with raising a family. A lot of people say it's about your priorities - meaning, having a fancy bike should be right up there too - but there's my priorities right there. Family first. As such, I applaud and Andrew for reviewing this bike. The price of this Marin is much more in the neighbourhood of what's realistic for guys like me and I bet a big chunk of the consumer market, including the silent majority who likely come to this website but don't comment.
