for that much you could have any number of bikes that would arguably be better by any metric. The allure of the cx is they are cheap. once you make them expensive what do they offer over other expensive bikes?
Yeah, I was looking at that and the prices seem high. I mean it has a motogadget and cognito gauge, wheels aren't $3k. Even with cognito hubs wheels will be under $2k, I mean custom spokes, custom drilled rims and laced by a pro for 2 wheels set me back right over $1k. I feel that CX falls under more money than brains.
People who have . . . "professionally modified and upgraded in every way" . . . their projects seem to believe they can get their labor/outsourcing cost out of it. Sometimes you can find a newbie who'll cough up the scratch.
Ive never understood why people think the collection of parts they bought is worth the retail value to resell.
Seems that's the thing people do most often when they haven't finished something and they're trying not to lose their ass. Because, basically that things is just a pile of parts right now, that just happen to be stuck together.
