Great article Andrew! I've taken this approach to my own 2014 Kona Process 134DL, trying to find the max benefit for min input over time. Most of the reviews that I've read of the Hawk Hill have said that it "punches above it's weight class/price category" (massive air quotes), but you have actually taken the time to get those changes priced out. Awesome that Marin helped out with pricing components. I would love to see this approach given to more lower / middle tier bikes to allow newer riders on budgets (or really any budget conscious rider) to know where they can get the most bang for their limited buck with future upgrades.
