@acidfast7 Not sure I actually gave a price point. My point is that initial price is not what I use as a basis for purchase decisions. My wife got a front suspension Diamondback for $100 (Guessing about 80 Euro). That bike is fine, and was a good value. It was marked down from $200 and she jumped on it quick.
Some times the lowest price is the most cost effective, but very often it is not. I paid $1600 for my current bike (Renyolds 525 frame, Shimano 105 groupset) I could have gotten great value for half that, but there is that intangible factor of personal preference.
