Impressive hybrid

Yesterday I was installing digital TV for this 70+ year old lady and in her garage was standing this insanely well-specced hybrid bike.
My eyes nearly popped out of my skull.
It had a full XT drivetrain, Marathon Racer tires and even leather grips!
It was brand new and she said she used it to tour around to keep fit.
Once home I looked it up ... this is it:

Looks nice kind of wish they sold them in the states to see in person.

I don't know where you are in the states but they do have a dealer in NH. I looked the closest dealer is Toronto Canada Long way from my home. My son right now is in Germany I should ask them to look at them for me

You don't actually want to buy these ludicrously expensive things, do you?

I'd get one if it came with a better bell. They should include tire levers, patch kit and a Clif Bar. I guess they didn't want to drive the cost up...

Agreed. One can always make do with cheaper junk even if you can afford the good stuff . We should all be driving 2 stroke Trabants, too .

In NE and don't think I have seen anything like these for sale anywhere close to here.

BTW never saw a price listed or maybe I am blind but I do always like looking at shiny new things whether I can afford them or not.

Personal opinion of course...but I reckon its dead ugly.

However, I do wish that hybrids came with better stock components...best I've seen are the Cube bikes (Tonopah, etc). Sort of hard to get in my part of the world though.
