Well, remember the real life rule;

Sorry, but with all due respect, I couldn't be more in disagreement with this. Unless you are speaking strictly in monetary terms. I watch in awe as some of these parts go to unimaginable heights and am reminded of the line by Oscar Wilde about someone who ".... knows the price of everything and the value of nothing."

I simply don't believe that because someone out there, with a lot of disposable income, decides that he/she will have something, regardless of cost, adds anything to the intrinsic worth of a bicycle part (or a Picasso, or the Hope Diamond, for that matter). Just my 2 cents.
