There must be a typo as it says $8,000...I can't image anyone spending this kind of money for a mountain bike. Just a few years ago this same bike would have been $5,000, which is still expensive.

Hi Robert, There's a variety of factors going in to the price increases we're seeing on bikes. Covid not only made manufacturing more difficult, but raw material shortages have slowed the bike industry down significantly, and manufacturing a bike is quite a bit more expensive than it was 5 years ago. Santa Cruz was able to kee their prices pretty consistent over the last 5 years, but at the beginning of 2021, they, and many other manufacturers raised their prices by about 10% in order to stay afloat. As a retailer, our prices are driven by the manufacturer. Also consider, this bike is very similar to the bikes that professional athletes are riding. The carbon layup and the components are pretty much exactly the same as one would find on the trail bikes that the Santa Cruz Syndicate rides (albeit, they're sponsored by Shimano, but plenty of World Cup and EWS racers use Sram drivetrains). No corners were cut in the build or spec of this bike, and the price reflects that. Top shelf bikes are amazing creations, but unfortunately they come at a price. With all of that in mind, all of the advancements in bike technology have allowed manufacturers to create very similar bikes at much less expensive prices. This is one of the more expensive Bronson builds available, but Santa Cruz offers several others at various price points. I would be more than happy to go over all of the options for mountain bikes that we have, and answer any other questions you may have!
