I mean, sure, you could have gotten more for it with the pandemic price surge but at least you can sleep at night. Some of the rip-offs I’ve come across… ugh.  In the spirit of min-maxing, I’ve met plenty of folks who’ve bought shocks that seem like ridiculous upgrades for older frames but picking up an Ohlins, or EXT, or CC Kitsuma, or etc for a few year old frame is cheaper and probably offers better performance than flipping your frame and getting a new one with a more basic damper. All this gen of Devinci bikes including Troy and Spartan are fairly neutral riding. I know folks who upgraded Spartan and Troy with high end shocks and raved about the change so I can’t see why it wouldn’t be the same with a Django or Hendrix/Marshal.  Sometimes it’s just time for a new bike though, I get it.
