    A bunch of people that think even the air in their tires is too heavy? I think we all know the answer to that.

    On a side note, I would love to get the 24k plated XTR derailleur, BLING!
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    No, but they would probably build you one up, custom, for about 3 million or so.

    Hey, shows what you can save when you throw branding and marketing out of the profit margins. And besides, most the solid gold bikes are made in Asia now days.

    To ride this bike, you must have at least two gold front teeth and smile wide as you pass by.

    Also, instead of a buzzing sound when rolling in freewheel, this bike makes a "ching-ching-ching-ching-ching..." sound.

    I always wondered what the sound of bling was. Now I know what to listen for
