It's interesting and all but who the bell are they selling that to? £20000 'urban' bike, who is gonna ride one of those around town and leave chained up the the pub railing. I can understand that sort of money for a competition bike, but not a town bike.

£20K and it's only got one bloomin' gear!! :roll:

For that money I'd want a Warp Drive fitted, or something capable of time-travel at the very least 8)

it is aimed at very rich people who need not necessarily have any idea about cycling. If say you were a wheeler and dealr in the city on a mega salalry, buying that bike would be like your or me buing a £ 199 Argos bike i.e. not make a huge dent in the wallet. ... not that I woudl ever buy an Argos bike , it was just an analogy.
