Are the guys at Litespeed stoned? $850 will buy you this.TSuprano

Would you put your two year old on this bike? For $850, Litespeed will ship you one. This might be the biggest rip off of the year. Here are the specs...(pay attention to the "new compact geometry".)

Handcrafted from 3/2.5 and 6/4 titanium, and utilizing a new compact geometry, this state of the art tricycle will provide families with riding memories for generations to come. Litespeed's custom-built, CNC-engraved, anodized aluminum fork comes with a Cane Creek C2 headset. The 50mm stem eases steering through the aluminum riser bars, while the extended rear axle provides unparalleled rider stability. The spring-loaded saddle cushions its rider on those long century rides, while the pneumatic tires and titanium frame absorbs any vibrations the sidewalk has to offer.

How you doin? Yeah, buddy, sorry to irritate you. I'm sending my kronies over to your house as we speak. Seriously, I had no clue it had been posted before as I am new to this board. Just trying to make a contribution.

Yeah, maybe Colorado Cyclist should put out a calendar! :) I'd bet it would be a big selling item!

How you doin? I'd like to get with the girl on the last cover. Come to Tony Colorado Cyclist Girl. Carmilla doesn't have to know a thing. While she is at spin class, I could be treating you like a real lady. Want to ride?

about once a week for the last six months, by my count.

PS -- I've always interpreted this offering as being done with tongue firmly in cheek (reference to riding a century on it?). I've never understood why folks get so wound up about it.
Geez, you'd think for that kinda' dough...asphalt assault

You'd get a King HS, that'd be the first thing I'd upgrade...then I'd s***can those platform pedals and go clipless.

That lousy wheelset would have'ta go too...carbon would be much better!

How you doin? But the quality of the titanium tubes with those upgrades would you mean you could race a ferrari for cheaper.

If I were two, I would want the Giant all the wayTSuprano

This Trike is very cool. The wheels light up, and it just looks faster. This would be a bike worth upgrading, but I wouldn't touch the wheels.

Think of it this way. Anyone who buys a litespeed for themselves can't be doing too badly. Since cycling has some very affluent people like lawyers and such who make and can spend a lot of money have a lot of money they are probably the target group. IRREGARDLESS, with no sizing and only one frame if they sell one frame they make up the setup costs and are making money!

If I was a millionaire I'd buy it. I bet every other techno geek gadget lover one this site would too.
