Personally, I'd be much more interested in seeing extremely well-set-up mortal bikes than just five-figure bikes.
i kindof agree - i don't necessarily care whether its a low-end bike or a top-end super bike. i can get all the hot pics of standard top-end super bikes i want just from manufacturer websites let alone the rest of the web.
to me, the ST front page should be reserved for bikes that have excellent setup for whatever purpose or rider needs. examples of clever problem resolutions that the rest of us can pick and choose from based on our situation and needs. the article should detail what the problem/need was and how the bike solves that problem. it might be an ingenious hydration system, a setup for unusual geometry, specific wheel or component choices, whatever.
not necessarily always unusual things though, there is a place for showing orthodox setups that just nail everything - especially for the main brands which a lot of us ride
