Which bike is the most profitable?


I have a question - I have 3 enduro bikes selected. Unfortunately, I do not know which one to choose because everyone is very good in terms of equipment and price. I would like to know which one is the most profitable. Is it worth (or not) to add a few hundred euros for better hardware, amortizator, frame, weight and tires.

1. Dartmoor evo blackbird - 2200

2. Swoop Al 8.0-2700

3. Swoop Al 9.0 - 3,300

For riding off road, any of them will be as good as the other. Better group sets and other components will be appreciated more as you get experience. If you are just starting out, then maybe just save the cost and put it away for the bike you get after this one. If you are riding on a paved surface, then IMO, none are what you need.

If you are not experienced enough to know what you want without having to ask others, then I'd say get the less expensive bike and just get some riding experience.

If by profitable, you mean that one that will give you the most benefit for riding, then that will be the one that is the color and other aesthetics that will scream "ride me" to you.

I think by "profitable" they mean cost/benefit. Does the extra 500 euro buy them 500 worth of better bike.

@Michaelllooo, if this is you first serious bike, don't spend a lot on it. Save the money and ride the heck out of what you got.

Why? If you step up your riding, you will change. Your riding style will change. What feels right will change. In 2 years, it is a good bet you will know that none of these bikes is exactly what you want. Spending an extra 1000 or 1500 euro more now won't change that. A much better approach is to buy the cheaper of those bikes, ride the heck out of it, spend little amounts of money to fine tune stems, seat (and that seat can go onto your next bike), etc.

Then, two or three years from now yo will have a much better idea on what a good bike for you is. And in the meantime you will have put together a very serviceable 2nd bike - to ride on gravel, in the rain or when you are about to go ride and your good bike has a flat.

Buy a disc bike with carbon frame as cheap as possible,after a period of riding you will get the notion what kind of bike you would like most,then upgrade you groupset,handle bar and wheels etc,it is too soon to decide which bike you should buy before you have some riding experience.
