It's all relative. If it's an activity you enjoy, and you have the money to spend, then spend it. For example, who plays golf? I do, barely, maybe a couple of times a year. That's it. I bought a set of clubs, bag, shoes and a glove and it set me back about $400.00. I know some golfers who spend $400 on a single club. I think they're crazy. They also think I'm crazy for spending over $100 for a headset! I think that in order to justify spending $400 on a single club, I would have to play at least 3x's a week, and with the expense of greens fees and the obligatory Beer, I'd spend 10x's as much than I do on my Cycling.
But, I have to drive at least 1.5 hours each way to hit some decent trails. Factor in that time, and it's all about the same. If you enjoy it, don't worry about it.
