The last time I did this at Wrench Science, someone called me up as well as sending me email, congratulated me on my fine choices and asked me if I was ready to place the order for that Fondriest now.

Back in '99, a friend and I tried to build an expensive bike. It was a Litespeed Liege with a Reynolds Ouzo fork, Ti stem & seatpost, Speedplay Ti pedals, Dura Ace, Lew custom wheels, and an SRM crankset. If you added up the retail prices, it was close to $10,000. I still ride it today.

I wish I remembered the name of the wheels, but I remember seeing a site advertising $3k for a wheelset. ATA or something I think.

Yeah... ATA was mentioned in another thread. I also mentioned the FiR Ronda Corsa wheels which I believe are around US$2,000 each.

Ok, here goes, and its not too out of the question in terms of
exotic components all are generally available today.

Ottrott ST Frame - $4,890.00
F2 Fork $ 565.00 plus $100 for tinting (has to match the bike)
Campy Record Gruppo $1,190.00 (minus crankset)
campy carbon crankset $ 698.00
Easton ec90 seatpost $ 169.00
Chris King headset $ 109.00
Speedplay Zero ti pedals $ 270.00
Stella Azzurra bars $ 400.00
Stella Azzurra stem $ 120.00
Stella Azzurra tape $ 18.00
Wipperman chain $ 40.00
Campy Hyperon Wheels $1,895.00
Veloflex Serizio Corse $ 160.00
Tubular tires (2)
Campy Cables $ 35.00
Brooks Swift Saddle $ 150.00 (or Swallow once it is in production again).

total: $10,709

All of the above items are either from Framemaker, or online catalogues.
I could go nuts with ADA wheels, or Lew wheels but we are in a recession,
right? (or is it just an economic slowdown?)

DAAAAMN!!!

If I spent that much on a bike, I'd be in divorce court and out on the street to boot. But heck! I'd have my $10,000 bike.

Yes, the megabuck wheels are called ADA's, and are Dutch made. They have carbon rims, spokes, and hub shells and ultra-low-drag ceramic sealed bearings. I met the wholesaler once on a ride, he lives on Bainbridge Island so there may be a few pair floating (and I do mean floating, the pair felt lighter than my front Mavic Helium) around the Seattle area.
