    Would you believe it, but only around $3,000 went into my BMC. OEM parts and sponsor deals are great.

    Typical TdF bike can be built up for under $10,000 Aussie, so I'd say about $7,500 USD.

    Vittoria Open Corsa Evo CX tyres. They are supposedly red. In real life they actually looked ok, or maybe the white balance wasn't quite right with the overcast sky.

    Unfortunately my Giant TCR advanced team is at about 9k AUD in the picture.
    I added the following over the stock bike, which was basically durace everything including the wheelset.
    Its high because I paid the rrp on the stock bike when it newly introduced in November 05, should have waited and saved about 2k. This would have paid for all the add ons.

    Fizik Arione Carbon Braided saddle
    Deda RS Corsa Carbon seat post
    Deda Zero 100 stem
    Time RXS Carbon ti pedals
    Elite Patao carbon cages
    Michelin Pro 2 Race "limited edition" tires
    Polar 625x computer (speed, cadence and hr)

    And I still get cracked by mountain bikes.

    Don't tell the Finance Mgr (aka the wife) or use the excuse its an investment for a healthy life.;) Cheaper than medical bills until you crash.

    Fortunately it won't be purple/magenta, or it'll really burn Alienator's eyes. ;)

    Here's my baby. A little retro but still a wonderful and fast ride. The photo is a little old, before I replaced the brake hoods. $40.00 USD for two, outrageous! i still have work to do on the other three before I post photos of them.

    Your BMC is pretty hot too. Look back though this thread and look at bobbyOCR's bike. That is so hot that it should be X rated!;)

    Not quite a BMC, Ridley or Time. But I just finished this a couple of weeks ago and it's a pretty fine criterium bike. Stiff, very snappy handling and horribly unforgiving on rough roads. Very comparable to the CAAD7 I was racing a couple of seasons back.
