forget bikes .What about parts
Cranks for £600 disc brakes for £500
I mean how the fk are they coming up with these prices
do they look at the market and think ..Yes we think the market would accept a brake that costs £50 to make bumped up heavily in price.
If something was hand forged,filed,machined then i coul;d accept it but what is effectively mass produced by machine
total piss take
''The average wage in 1990 was £13760, in 2011 it was £26000. ''.
Love this kind of statistic.totally false because it includes some earnings that are in the £100,000-250,00 bracket.this pushes the average higher.
Vast and i mean VAST amount of people get slightly more than minimum wage.That works out @ about 12000 a year and even tradesmen can only earn maybe £22,000 tops
Personally id put the average UK wage at between 10 and 11 thousand per year
In 1990, my salary was 10k, within about 3 years (at a guess, and sketchy memory) about 20k, in 96, when I left my then public sector job, my wages were around 22-23k (I remember it being around that, because my first private sector job got me 25k in 96).
