Take a step back and remove the word “factory” out of the equation. If you were to judge those two bikes based strictly on performance, the T3 M1 is the better performing bike overall. The bike was on the podium 8 times last year (along with six 4th’s, two 5th’s, a 6th and 7th and a few one off bad races by Dovi), and has run with the front runners in both races this year (a 5th and a 4th). It is an extremely capable bike despite being a “parts bin bike made from mostly factory M1 parts”. Now, I’m not suggesting that Bradl’s bike is bad by any means. After all, he does receive factory support. However, the T3 bike seems to be able to hold the candle. Also keep in mind that the bike has been on the front row. The fact that you couldn’t understand why I made that statement based on simple deduction is beyond me.
