$1900 each? I値l take 2

Road Cycling 的t is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

You guys are missing the point.

It isn't something intended to actually be used. It is a collectors item - hand painted, numbered, only 25 made.

The point isn't to save time or watts. It is to impress the guests who helicopter to to the party at your summer home in the Hamptons. It goes next to the $200 Campagnolo cork screw and your autographed copy of "Its not about the bike."

Besides, you can't have one. All 25 are sold out.

My dad sells speaker systems at that sort of level. I should tell him to fly to Sri Lanka to meet... someone.

I see Romain Bardet, Patrick Lange and Mario Mola will be racing on 7-speed cassettes (freewheels?) this coming season. 13-19. This must be in conjunction with Shimano's "A Look at the Past" retro group. (That was the freewheel I raced in the '70. I loved it but thought we had moved on. Guess not.

"3D-printed Titanium hollow oversized pulley wheels, available only for Shimano 9100 groupsets (13/19-tooth combination)." From the CeramicSpeed website.

I actually use mine, and have done so for 28 years. It's a quality tool, designed to be used.

The 13/19 refers to the tooth count on the jockey wheels. The upper is a 13T, the lower is a 19T.

For anyone interested in dabbling in marginal gains, plenty of Taiwanese OSPW knockoffs for around a hundred bucks.

Tres steam punk. I guess it would give you a reason to wear goggles on group rides.

SOLD OUT

I wonder if Mr. Mogul bought them all, even if only for the sole reason that he liked the boxes. I'll wait for the sideways pictures....

Taken with an iphone, while there is literally a stack of Leica cameras/lenses on the same table.

i don't think this thread was started to insult. although mr. mogul's buying habits do make him an easy target for such lavish luxury items such as this.

this thread wasn’t started to troll anyone here.

I wouldn’t even insult anyone that has a Ceramicspeed derailleur pulley system.

One of my friends has one on his road bike. He also owns a Cessna Citation X, so I don’t question the way he spends his $ on bike stuff.

if I had his income, I’d have them on several bikes

If I had the money for that crap, I'd get the transmission rebuilt in my car. How somebody can blow money on such ostentatious bullspit is beyond me.
