Is it a hundred times better, do the bars, pedals, inner tubes cost 100 more?
I suppose I could afford such a machine but I could never thoyle it
The cost of the frame set is mostly down to the R&D that went into the design of the mould and the expensive materials used to produce it. Add in the cost of the components, group set, the wheels and other bits and bobs, and it soon adds up.
