Or "pull" what every manufacturer does, which is start with top spec and then work down.

Without going back to reread the threads, I think there was mention of an Ultegra Di2 version around $8000. Seems aligned with Cervelo and other brands' pricing.

What's more shocking is something like a $7,650 "sale" price on a super basic Quintana Roo with Ultegra Di2, Shimano training wheels, and a basic aftermarket cockpit.

Goodness, they've gone backward.

They are one of the first who managed to hide most shifter and brake cables, back in 2010 with the Plasma 3 TT

Ten years later, they still got brake cables dangling? SMH...

I think that is a drinking system straw you see - not a brake cable.

But also - I just don’t see how this thing can be for sale, when it isn’t even on the Scott website.

And no athletes are getting this bike and posting pics on social media?

I just don’t see it ... Seems sort of fake.

I hear ya. But the new specialized shiv has been out for almost 2 years? And they haven’t worked down yet 😂

Complaining about the cost of a $7600 bike in a thread about a bike that costs 2x that?? Lol.

At least the QR has trickled down and you can get a full disc brake bike for less than$3k from them.

It just seems that brands aren’t really trickling down. Specialized is still expensive. Cervelo P3X still expensive. I doubt this Scott is going to trickle down. Maybe to $10k??

Where do you see the brake cables other then at the fork and chain stay where they enter the brake caliper.
And even there they seem to be ‘hidden’ by the design.

Ah yes, you are right. I didn't look as carefully and thought it looked like two separate cables, whereas it's just the drinking tube.

Yes and I would also complain about a $50k Corolla hatchback in a thread about a $100k 911 S. They're not even the same spec.

The sale-priced $7600 QR is a non-superbike with training wheels and FSA cranks while the $8999 retail-priced Plasma has carbon wheels and Ultegra cranks. The fact that retail on that QR if $8,500 is hilarious. That's $500 more than a Di2 P5 or P3x

The Specialized, P3X, and Plasma will never trickle down to $3k because they aren't simple double triangle bikes with standard cockpits. We'll be lucky to see them around $5k, which will probably happen once they are many years old. They aren't in the same league as QR, which is more like a P-series or Plasma 10. For reference the P-series Di2 retails for $2000 less than the PRsix2 and is better equipped.
