Went by the Performance and they had more new GT's than I've seen in a while which was great. The Force's look great and everything's in line, then I saw the Sanction 2, okay, $2500. Then I saw the Sanction 1.0 on sale for $5500, retail for $6500! While the bike was sweet no doubt, I actually laughed to myself. Now mind you, I think it's right up there with the best of the new aggressive trail bikes but I've always thought they were such a great value. Maybe they're trying to go up market? The components are always great and normally it's like getting the frame for free! Personally, I can't wait to see what the blowout pricing will be. It might be worth picking one up if it gets down to $3K or so. Performance has a reputation of blowing out their older bikes pretty quickly.
