A custom build will cost more than a prebuilt bike but it will be exactly what you want. If you have the time and the money you will be better off building it with the parts you want. You can buy a pre built but then you will be spending more money when you want to upgrade.
They eventually reversed course and saved face, but it was a good lesson that the biking community cares and public relations matter.
Also be, is a full suspension mountain bike worth it? You want a more comfortable ride: A full-suspension mountain bike will soak up most of the jarring bumps that would otherwise be sent to your body (and in some cases, buck you off your bike). This can help reduce fatigue, which in turn can allow you to ride faster, for longer, with greater comfort.
Either way, why are MTB so expensive?
The cost of engineering is hugely more expensive per bicycle. ... At the entry level end of the scale, looser engineering tolerances, cheaper materials, and a larger market allow for fairly nicely equipped bikes, for around $500. This changes dramatically at the top end of the mountain bike food chain.
Is a Trek bike worth the money?
Trek is comparably priced to all other bikes. In my area, they tend to run maybe 10% more. 10% on an average sale of $1000 isn't much. The expertise at our particular Trek store is probably worth it all by it's self.
