Just recently noticed an add for this Colnago C-60 Special Edition bike and the price is like $14,999.99 or something and it immediately made me think of the Eddy Merckx that I posted a few days ago. There are lots of bikes these days pushing the $10,000 price tags and it blows my mind, then there are these bikes that go for $15,000 plus. I guess they're meant to hang on the wall or something because I would never ride one of them unless one of them were given to me to ride and I don't think thats gonna happen. I would like to see if they ride better than one of my bikes though. Maybe one day there will be a road bike shootout in Road Bike Action magazine, the Merckx vs. MEECH issue.
"You're going down!"
Ever notice how these high-end bikes always have Campagnolo components on them? Alright, alright, I won't stir the pot with you Shimano and SRAM people even though Campagnolo is better. Shimano and SRAM works just fine, usually, however it just doesn't look as good. Am I allowed to say ATMO here or is that 15 year old internet slang copywritten by someone?
This Colnago V-1 or whatever it is only cost around $4799. Where'd the Campy go?
