Couldn't agree with you more. My thinking on that first build was am I even going to like this? Well I do lol so quality parts are high on the list. Years ago I would get into some hobby (I have many lol) and upgrade slowly then upgrade those parts, now days I try and skip the intermediate stuff and in the long run it saves you money and space.
My plan is to have one really well built motored bike, one standard motored bike and two electrics and keep a couple human powered bikes around. Will this change? maybe but Id be out of space to house them.
