Bicycle, that is.
There, hanging above all the other lowly road bikes, was the granddaddy of all road bikes; the Trek Limited Edition Livestrong Madone SL. The price tag boasted four nines to the left of the decimal point, and two to the right — $9999.99 (the website lists the price as $9499.99, which goes to show you that you can always save money by shopping the ‘net!)
The bike is a hand-built replica (number 4 of 600) of the bike that Lance Armstrong used to win the Tour de France last year. And it is a work of art. Carbon fiber and titanium everything, with gold leaf embellishments just for fun. Each bike is even signed by the Lance himself.
It was hanging up, on display, so I couldn’t pick it up to get a feel for how little it weighs. I’d love to find out how light it is. I doubt I could ever bring myself to ride it, even if I could afford it. I’d be afraid I’d break something.
