Great bike and I'd have one if I had room for an n+1

dont £1200 bikes come with rockshox these days, whats the sunrace like on these.

Many come with rockshox at £1200 hence the reason the bike is average for £1200 but you are not paying £1200.

A decent bike but never £1200 spec

So the rrp looks high, seen it with all bikes, components, etc, everything's priced In US$ so Brexit has pushed our prices up by at least 10-20% by the distributors shimano, silverfish etc

Rockshox as a brand do cheap forks and expensive forks, so do suntour. The forks on this bike are better than *some* Rockshox models. Rockshox are no longer made in the USA, they are made in the far east by.....Suntour.

This bike has 650b+ wheels and tyres, these are more expensive than regular wheelsizes as they are A) new and exciting, B) less common and c) use more material.

This also means that the wheel hub spacings are 10mm wider than normal, I'm not sure that Rockshox do a fork in this price range in these boost sizes.

This bike also comes with Sram GX 11 speed. This usually costs the same as XT when buying replacements, the 10-42 cassette requires a special xd Driver free hub, again, uncommon. You'll be paying a premium on any bike because of this.

It's a great bike for the money.

Thanks mr storm very interesting knowledge, your are quite right on the wider spaced forks, they do seem to be at a big premium for the bluto, boost variant. I hadn't seen the SRAM gx kit, again reassuringly expensive.
I like mine functions well, except when setting up tubeless earlier in the year my damn cassette and xd driver fell off the wheel, as I was giving the wheel a shake and turned over to get the sealant spread about

​Ha, I did that once on dt wheels. Pumped up the tube, it popped and the shock made the cassette and free hub fall off. Deafening too!

What makes a bike worth over £1000? The name?

just brought a boardman comp 650b 2016 model for £408 best baragin i've ever made since the bike is worth £650 its sim spec to this but this one is slighty better

the specs like fork gears weight ect...

Brilliant bike for the money! The Carrera Fury from Halfords also has Suntour Raidon shocks but this one has Shimano brakes rather than Avids and a proper RaceFace bar and post (plus a better chainset). If you have the extra £220 over the Fury then go for it. If not then the Fury at £400 is also a bargain.

Great bike. Well worth the price. And a others have mentioned, the plus wheel size makes it stand out. One would expect to pay a premium for that sort of feature but this one is very competitively priced.
Wish I had the cash and space.

I got one of these from Evans (price matched) last week. Awesome bike, lots of fun! Really like the colour too.
