What would be the price range of the bikes that the cyclists use in the TDF ? i guess it would be quite a saucey price
I thought one of the ideas behind the US Postal Team Trek was that if you had the money, you could go into a shop and buy exactly the same bike with the same spec as LA was riding. I think it cost around £6k at the time.Yeh Id guess about 5K as an off the shelf.
But aren't they tailor made in terms of frame geometry and sizing, to the rider? So probably priceless really.
I think one of the rules of the Tour is that all components on the bike need to be available retail
Yeah I think it is too. It's just that Trek made a big thing that rather than buy all the bits etc and have the bike built, you could literally walk into a bike shop and walk out with a Trek Madone (I think it was the Madone) specced out just like LA's. Naturally the alleged performance enhancing drugs would be extra.I think one of the rules of the Tour is that all components on the bike need to be available retail
