    Santa Cruz kit prices

    I'm considering buying a SOLOc. It's usually quite a bit cheaper to buy a complete bike than to buy a frame and parts, even if you want to upgrade a couple of things, but that doesn't seem to be the case for the Santa Cruz kits. I added some things up, and it looks like I could put together something like an SPX kit but with even lighter wheels and carbon bars for about the same amount of money (whenever the SOLO is available as a frameset). Anyone else notice this?

    Yes, there's been at least a couple of threads mentioning this recently. Unless you have money to burn, getting your bike built up makes more sense.

    Yeah their kits used to be a good deal but that has since changed. I think you could build it up yourself and save over their kit bikes.
