I think if anything a re-review isn't a bad idea on a lot of bikes. How many times has a bike's performance been deemed unsatisfactory due to tires, brakes, or suspension? Many. Understandably, there are components on a midlevel bike that won't be up to our particular snuff. The more experienced and active of a rider you are, the more likely that you aren't rolling on a stock bike, even if it was purchased as such. Bikes in this range at least get the purchaser most of the way there, and reviewing a rig with common upgrades/changes seems like a better way to provide a fuller review of the merits (or lack thereof) of the design. But, that may be my bias as I tend to ride midrange bikes with near the same type of changes as what Andrew made.
