    That Yamaguchi is pure Gene Spicer inspired silliness! I mean that in a good way.


    Also, is it wrong that the only thing that i could think about while looking at the colnago was, "why the hell did they put downtube shifters on a bike with aero bars?" You make this super aero bike with bars that could easily run barcons, and put dt shifters on it?!

    :) It was used by Mike McCarthy to win the 1992 Olympics' World Championship Pursuit race. It's sitting on display in the Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis, CA.

    Wow. €80k for a mass-produced frame.

    The headbadge of that bike would seem to indicate that they made 50 "Gold Bike Crystal Editions." Thats a lot of stupid. I hope that is a joke, but I don't really want to put the effort forth to investigate.

    oh, i understand that..

    It's just the prestige of the gold, and the limited quantity.

    I wouldn't ride it.

    I would stare at it a lot though.

    But... it's a thing that's a net loss as a value. By paying that much, you get a worse bike. It's like comparing a 15 million dollar Formula 1 car to a gold-plated 20 million dollar Corvette — one is a custom car, built from scratch to spec, to fit one driver exactly, where the other one is a car that people like to think is like a race car, only now it's covered in gold.
