Yeah, Jeff and Wade decided to go that route this year too. Can't say that I blame anyone for doing that at all. For me though, the money is better spent up front. I like my bodywork to fit right and I don't mind repairing/ repainting after a crash. Heck, I'd bet the Sharkskinz bodywork on our endurance bike is almost 10 years old with 10 years of racing/ crashing on it. It still looks great!

Over the past 10 or so years I've repaired/ repainted a ton of different brands from the shittty stuff to the ultra-high end stuff and the Attack/ Skinz/ similar brands that are considered "high end" have always been in much, much better shape to repair BY FAR.

The cheap stuff sometimes comes out of the box broken.

It takes a couple of cheap ones for me to realized that.
