crappy stock?

So I was looking at these rocky mountain flow bikes and noticed that they are quite expensive but have rather crappy deraillers. Is it just not that necessary to have good ones or what?

You're paying for the frame, and with those bikes, it is common to break parts.

alrighty then, I can definitely see paying for the frame. rocky mountain seems to be that way. The breaking stuff often is a good point too, I guess I would be inclinded to go single speed on it, or fixed gear, which ever one has a free wheel. I never remember. Thanks for the posts.
