CAD vs CA…lifornia?

So like $7,599 vs $18,325.42? HOLY SHIT, it's way worse than I thought!

Why is a local store advertising in CAlifornian dollars?

(DH Fox is worth $2k more than DH RS, but the Giant is def on the list, or was).

Thought I was alone on the crazy pills. The bike industry is out if control thinking these bikes are worth this much. The parts are mass produced, not made from scratch in a custom shop.

The CA price of bikes has gone up in the past two years since the loonie tanked.

Enve wheels on the SC.

Take that off and you're down to 11,400, which is lots but closer to the Tues.

Also, you can get on a V10 for 7,249. One that is comparable to the Tues, albeit with a slightly lower spec.

Enve m90's retail for about $400 more than the carbon E13's that come with the Tues.

No, the two bikes I've listed are 100% comparable line by line.

My apologies, I hadn't realized that that they were LG1r carbon wheels.

Frame material difference? Is the Tues more comparable to the C line of SC bikes or the CC line?
