    I haven't bought one yet but it all depends on the parts spec you pick and availability of parts. Also if you do a custom paint job it takes a lot more time.

    What are you looking for?

    Why isn't that good? You have to choose a very expensive, upper spec bike. You can't customize a $1000, or even a $3000 bike IIRC. Don't be surprised everyone isn't able to do this.

    Exactly, perhaps Trek will offer more color choices on current more affordable bikes.

    Besides being in a radical income bracket, custom painting a mountain bike makes as much sense as custom painting a mountain bike. Silly rich folk.....

    If people want to spend their money on it why should it matter? I love when people give the whole "you must be rich" spiel. I myself couldnt afford to do it, but to me it's the same idea as putting racing stripes or decal on a car, or anything to make one of your possessions unique.

    Yes, people should spend their money on whatever they feel like. No challenge there. The reality is that one could say a large population of those that frequent this site do not make an income that would support more then 5k for a bicycle with a custom paint job. And an individual being surprised at that is frankly annoying. Often those in that income bracket have "certain" attitudes that fulfill the stereotype of that income bracket. Does not apply to everyone. Anyone shocked that someone cannot afford and post pictures of a custom painted mountain bike should feel silly in my opinion. On top of that it's a mountain bike, a bicycle that will get dirty, crashed, and scratched. Custom paint job makes as much sense as trying to lose weight while eating fast food. Off soap box.
