In post a couple of days ago, I looked at the cost of road cycling. I made a slight error when I wrote: “Entry level high-end new bikes run in the upper $600’s to $850 range while the nicer bikes range from $1,500-$2,300”.
The upper end cost is low. It’s $3,499
The $3,500 buys a beautiful fire engine red and white 58 cm Trek Domane, Ultegra all the way around, though it is a triple. It’s one of the most beautiful bikes I’ve laid eyes on – that isn’t wildly out of my price range.
If I were a more intelligent fellow I would blame Matt, the shop owner, for blatantly ordering that bike in my size. Fortunately I’m not, I just have to find out what the down payment is and what the financing terms are…
