As you can see the new G-Sport Simian is 80$ and if you didn't know it's the new and improved marmoset but with a different name. You can also see that the marmoset is 95$. What's going on?

Maybe they're trying to be more affordable for the riders? They're supposed to be better hubs so i dont think they are taking the sunday route and making shit parts cheap so thats all i could think of. they also probably made their production methods more affordable/efficient so that could have brought down the price too.

Just because something is cheaper doesn't necessarily mean its weaker. It could be more a more efficient simpler design.

I haven't been on the hub pages of Albes or Dans in a month or so, but if I remember correctly, the Marm used to be 80 or 85. I looked more at Albes though, because they have Ribcages, and I love their wheel builds anyway.
