what would that bike have cost in 2011/12? probably not that far off from the asking price?

Maybe there is an extra zero on there by mistake?

In 2006 my SC Superlight cost about R40k. In 2013 I was lucky to sell it for R10k

Is it just me or is the ridiculousness getting worse each passing day?

Santa Cruz Blur XC Carbon 26" | Bike Hub

What doth the people say? R8k-R10k maybe?

R28k is what you could maybe insure it for.

A high end 2012 26er is probably the worst bike investment ever, with the benefit of hindsight. 

R8-10k if it doesn't need any replacement items in the near future.

Please tell me there's a vw beetle underneath that atrocity. 

If I'm not mistaken these kits are sold to fit onto Toyota MR2 platforms.

 

In one of the latest Topgears one of those guys with the annoying english accent rocks up in a F355 kitted MR2

Great, I was wrong.

I still reckon it was a cool looking bike. 

 

I knew a guy who had a Merida resprayed to look like a commondale. It was a nice looking bike.

 

I am disappoint ... the fork logos were not correct!

Bar ends ... I am sure the terms and conditions specify that if you have bar ends you may (a) only access this platform via dial-up internet connections (b) never publicly admit to owning ANY bikes with bar ends.

Wait, since when does Jumbo Visma use Ultegra?

https://bikehub.co.za/classifieds/item/road-bikes/473762/cervelo-s5

 

Also, pretty sure they have black and yellow ones.

They also run Dura Ace wheels. 

 

I mean, EF ride my bike at the tour as well, besides the groupset, wheels, seatpost, handlebar, tyres,.

Is this anti bar-end snobbiness cult a subset of the the anti -specialised snobbiness cult or is it a stand alone one?

Wout's S5 is 8.14 with bottle cages, empty bottles, and a Garmin mount. My Shiv is roughly the same with a bottle, garmin mount, and garmin and 60/88 darkhorses... HOW

Are these Spez bar-ends ?

If those bar ends are on riser bars that's grounds for immediate banishment!

So when do I get my DCM ( Don't Come Monday) notification:)
