Bianchi by Gucci

What will $14,000 get you these days? How about an Italian carbon fiber commuter bike. And don’t forget the matching helmet.

    [...] And what does a $14,000 bicycle include? It features a 22-pound carbon fiber frame, eleven gears, hydraulic disc brakes, and double-sided pedals. Wait, that’s it? How is this bike still $3000 more than Bianchi’s top-of-the-line Oltre Super Record? Oh right, matching Gucci badges on the seat and frame. You’d think they’d at least throw in the matching helmet for that price but no—girding your noggin in Gucci styling will set you back another $960. [Gucci via Urban Velo] [...]

    You’d think for 14k they could design a frame not reliant on a chain tensioner. Then again saying the words “You’d think” and associating them with this transportation accessory is an oxymoron.

    I scoffed at the price, but then realized it has hydraulic brakes….and a “wheel reflector”.

    I’ll take 2.

    Maybe there’s cocaine stuffed in the top tube…

    Keep in mind this is NOT a bike for the US retail market, rather a promotional collab w/selected Gucci retailers.

    Only because it has “disk breaks”

    Frankly, it doesn’t look like carbon. The downtube/headtube joint has much too small of a radius of curvature for carbon. It looks like welded aluminum. Perhaps only the rear seat stays are carbon.
