I can see it either way. I’ve had great bikes for review that were only okay because of spec choices (brakes are a big one, tires, etc) and it becomes impossible to divorce the review of the bike from the spec choice without changing the part out - and how many things can you change before it’s really just a frame review?! Anyways, it’s a rhetorical question because the formula is a bit different in every situation. It’s way more work to do a frame only test but it also means not having to force myself to go out and ride a bike with crappy brakes...
