Neat feat of engineering, but pointless IMHO. 45K....yeah. That is alot of carbon though and I can appreciate the science/engineering that it took to make all of those parts.

At that price, it would never leave the locked vault it's stored in.

My road bike is about 18 as well but I'm sure I could drop a lot of weight by changing the wheels. I'm starting to realize the stock ones are heavy @ss b*itches!

I have pretty good wheels. Mavic Krysrium's. Dropping weight in mine would be going Dura ace instead of Ultegra, and carbon stem/bars. The frame is mostly aluminum with CF fork and seat stays.
