Pleanty of folks wear off-the-rack and are quite happy with it.
But there's nothing like a tailored suit.
I believe part of the reason you see so much discussion is that you are on an enthusiast's site. Most here are not satisfied with bikes the way they come "Ready to Race", so we tear into them and throw money. Same as homes, cars and spouses.
I won't argue the sanity of it.
