Shimano 12-speed is not the budget win that 11-speed was.

The bike also has the noted fork upgrade and a substantial wheelset upgrade.

I am 100% certain none of this would matter to me and I'd be just as happy on the $5000 as the $6000 bike.

...And just as happy with a $3500 aluminum version, if it existed. I'm sure it will soon, if this bike is successful. It and the new Mojo 4, its direct competitor, are kind of throwbacks, and took a long time to get fully refreshed.
