CANNONDALE SUPERSIX HI-MOD 2 RED RRP $6500
Its lightweight carbon-fibre frame makes this a pure race thoroughbred. Perfect for someone looking
to take their racing to the next level.
DEKERF CUSTOM PRODIGY TITANIUM RRP $5500 FOR FRAME (MORE THAN DOUBLE ONCE IT’S BUILT)
Titanium is a bike for life – custom-built just for you. The bike you dream of is the bike you get.
Cycling equipment generally comes in one of two varieties: very expensive
and totally undesirable.
The bike itself is the single biggest outlay. A suitably exotic European model
costs upwards of $12,000 when fully set up. Although this does seem like an incredibly
large sum of money for a bicycle, there’s consolation in the fact that you can actually own
and ride the exact same bike that Cadel Evans uses to take on the best. Try doing that
with Mark Webber’s Formula 1 car!
Then there’s the rest of the gear; cycling knicks or bike pants (around $250), jersey
($200), helmet (up to $300), shoes ($400) and sunglasses ($250).
The closer you get to the top of the range, the more you pay for the exclusivity of
having the best. And while the best equipment will not make the slowest rider faster, in
some circles, being the fastest is nowhere near as important as looking like you know
how to be the fastest. It’s all part of the culture.
