If those people have worked for their money then it's up to them how they spend it, but I do find it obscene that when 'deals' for non-Christians giving up an otherwise dull and boring day to feed the homeless get thousands of votes on here, we are reminded that a bicycle can be bought for upwards of 3 grand.
It is possible to buy a house in parts of the EU for that money....... not a palace by any means, but with water and electricity inside, and enough land to grow crops in order to feed yourself as the locals do - it would be interesting to know if any of our homeless would be willing to live on a foreign smallholding, if some fortunate person decided to do without a new bike in order to finance it.

i've been told that before, i asked how much the persons new car on the drive cost each month,
the price of my bikes have not been mentioned since..

as a famous footballer once said 32820895-eUvN8.jpg
If you use something a lot, or you do it as part of a team sport then why the hell not.

I am buying a new bike in the new year which will probably cost similar but it needs to be the best I can get as it will be used on the trails a lot.

It's not like a flashy watch or something else bought purely for vanity, bikes like this are proper tools that work where much cheaper ones would not work.
That bike is a bargain. If your going to do an extreme sport, you need something that will hold up to it. I’m assuming the people voting cold have never seen what these bikes are actually made for...

I tried burning it but these new plastic notes don't go up very well. So it is buy myself expensive toys or buy a small house in some horrible place and i chose expensive toys.
people voting cold.. yes you can buy cars for less but if you enjoy mountain biking and take it seriously. This is a brilliant bike. The only thing bad with it, its from a company thats killing the Local bike shops. Go see if your local bike shop can price match first, if not theyl prob offer free maintenance/ bearing replacements for free every year. That an easy £200 saving every year !
People voting this cold clearly have no idea what this awesome bike is nor that this is actually a really cheap price!

It's my next weapon of choice, the 5010 is a frickin awesome piece of kit (one of the best all round trail bikes out there IMHO) & a serious/semi-serious MTB'r would probably consider it worth the money but it's hardly going to appeal to people for nipping down to the shops on...

Sadly as the UK is running one of the largest trade deficit's in the world such purchases deflate our economy and cause more borrowing and debt and we will all contribute in taxes and debt for these purchases. If you basically give your money to another country they obviously get to use that money in their economy, health service etc and we end up borrowing, hence why services are constantly being reduced and wages are stagnant. However normally much of our trade deficit can be put down to automobiles which make up a large slice of our trade deficit as they are such major purchases. Someone who regularly buys a large luxury imported car maybe every 2 years for most of their adult life may have added 100s of thousands of pounds of national debt/borrowing and in that context a £3,000 bike seems insignificant of which tax and shop margins makes up some of the purchase.

Currently there is about £30,000 debt per head for national debt and something like £50-60,000 public sector pension liability debt per head and £43 billion a year currently is just servicing the interest on our debt getting close to a £1,000 per head of dead money just going to international bankers without even paying back the main debt. If you calculate the national debt per taxpayer instead of every head that is over £100,000 of debt for every single tax payer in the country including public sector pension liability. Very annoying for those of us who don't have cushy public sector pensions and don't make large import purchases. I agree in principle that its their money and they should be able to do want with it but obviously has a huge effect on the economy with over 60 million consumers buying in many more imported goods than they export. There is no mystery why the NHS and other essential services are under huge financial strain.

Where can you buy a house for 3K in the EU?

I have an ISA so I will buy six. Of course I cannot because that is absolute nonsense.
You can get property cheap in Bulgaria. A large number of people have emigrated for work and the supply and demand is the reverse of the UK with an abundance of property. Just look at some of the completed auctions on ebay. Sometimes an un-modernised property can go for hundreds of pounds.

So, for the bargain price of £3K you can purchase a condemned and abandoned property without metalled road access. Amazing. And EU citizens can stay in Bulgaria for 90 days in any 6 month period...except we are not going to be in the EU. Great.

Oh, and every professional advisor recommends paying for a special alarm and private security to respond to your property due to the high levels of theft from holiday homes. And just to top it all off - lots of properties were built without permits which there is no guarantee any eBay properties actually have...

I'm no expert on bulgarian property but even those links have both good and bad. I think the scams are in the minority but some areas do have higher crime rates. There are videos on youtube of people who bought houses from peanuts and are happy. There may be cheap property in moss side but I'm not moving there. You'll find cheap property all over Bulgaria its not just in high crime areas although I'm sure those are likely to have the cheapest prices.
is this deal for a MTB or a pile of rubble in a rough hell hole in Bulgaria?
