• An old bike, still pretty fun to ride
• Unicycle, no brand name visible

I think these are just templates they loaded up... I know its a sellers market but you cant increase the frameprice almost 100%... can you?

Maybe it's like the Aethos, 600 gram frameset or such?

So word on the street is the frameset price is somewhere in the 4.000+ USD range. This is coming from a frame that used to be 2700.00.... looks like I am riding the Inflite for another season.

Specialized: "kill your darlings"?

Remember that S-WORKS is some high margin shizzle. Always room to get lower price on anything with the stamp.

This all but confirms the most INSANE price hike for the incoming MY 2022 Crux. Damn this hurts. This is the US Spesh site.

This is stupid, what fool would buy this? Especially in a cross frame which will take more abuse than a high end road frame.

My half full attitude says that is just a mistake since that is last year's frameset but tells us something is coming....

You could get a Pursuit All Road, various Allied models such as Able, or Open UPPER for less than this...!

All Crux carbon bikes have "fact 11 carbon" so by the cheapest one and get same frame and fork as S-works?
Google 71421-0146 and youll see that the price seems to be correct. 5000 USD (but a 2021 frame!?). Maybe its a sneaky way to make the new frame to look "no more expensive than previous years".
