I believe Awesomatix and Xray take the cake on expensive parts. I will be surprised if the Roche hits that level of pricing. Will they be offering a carbon chassis version this time around?

The Ollie Payne vid claims little if any price increase over the current Roche.

I think that would of been a fair statement based upon pre-COVID raw material and shipping costs.
