The Most Outrageous Tri Bikes You Can’t Afford
Here are 12 Outrageously expensive bikes. Your’s for the price of a small to medium sized car. Or you kids’ college fund.
Did I miss any?
Giant Trinity Advanced SLO
Advanced SL-Grade Aero Composite frame, Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 Drivetrain and Zipp wheels. A monster of a bike and looks great too. My complaint – pedals not included. Bit tight that if you ask me!
Yours, for $13,000
BMC Time Machine TT01
Swiss made frame using the 3-P system. That means its based on ergonomic data from over 3000 male and female athletes. A bargain compared to the Giant Trinity – coming in under that crucial $13k figure.
Yours, for $12,999
Scott Plasma Premium
Optimized for aerodynamic efficiency while maintaining UCI compliance (how do you feel about that Ceepo Viper?) [see below]
Yours, for $9,999
Specialized S-Works Shiv Concept
I love Specialized bikes and this one just looks the part.
Yours, for $11,775
Wilier Cento1 Crono Concept
Combining the latest airflow technology with the latest carbon performance technology is a sure fire recipe for speed. Seems pretty accurate to me.
Yours, for $11,240
Pinarello Graal Carbon Di2
Compared to the, FM1, the previous model, the Graal has completely new geometries, steeper seat tube angles and a vertical seat post. In a word – Understated.
Yours, for $9,750
Trek Speed Concept 9.9
You’ve got to seriously back yourself putting a cracking bike time to bring out a machine that looks like this out on race day. All you need now are some go-faster stripes on your helmet and you’re all set.
Yours, for $12,100
A genuine ‘superbike’ with a price tag to match.
Yours, for $12,499
Cervelho P4 9000
It’s a strange day when you refer to the P4 as being a ‘bargain’ at the ‘low end’ of the price point. Once referred to as the fastest legal bike there is, the P4 has apparently had 25 upgrades since the last model.
Yours, for $9,000
Ceepo Viper Concept
My favorite part of the official Ceepo website description of the Viper is this: “UCI rules compliant – NO.” I’m guessing it’s a pretty fast bike then?
Yours, for $12,750
Look 596 Mondrian
A bike that look’s like it got dressed in the dark.
Yours, for $10,600.
