It’s a cool, wet Sunday in Le Sud, so my thoughts have turned towards things I’d like but can’t afford, in particular, the inevitable list of winter upgrades. Here is an example, found yesterday online. This is what I’d love to be riding in next year’s Haute Route.
This is Bianchi’s limited edition Oltre XR Gimondi (to celebrate the great Felice Gimondi’s 70th birthday). The bike (only 70 have been made) comes equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS electronic groupset, Campagnolo Bora carbon wheelset, and the names of Gimondi’s main victories on the down-tube, among other gadgets essential for the collector. It’s also a steal, at €13,500.
Well, that was fun. Now back to…
One of a few saddles I’m looking at to shave those precious 100 grams or so off the bike this hiver – The Fi’zi:k Antares 00. I’d like to say it’s a ‘steal’, but looks more like a ‘robbery’, at €295.
What’s on your unrealistic wish list, blog buddies?
