Most impressive pricing mistake ever

Notices
Road Cycling “It 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

Illinois residents need to add 7.25% for sales tax. Which brings the total to $13,738,723.93 + $100 to ship.

I might hold off until I get my economic stimulus check.
