Gear Crush: The $10K Bike


 
Ask a pack of pros to create their dream ride and this is what you get: a supremely aerodynamic carbon fiber frame; handmade, impossibly lightweight wheels; internal cable routings that actually increase torsional rigidity; the perfect balance of stiffness, weight, and comfort. You get, in other words, the Focus Bicycles USA Izalco Team Milram ($10,000): designed by yesterday’s champs (including Olympic gold medalist Daniel Becke), tested by tomorrow’s (Team Milram, top-25 finish, 2009 Tour de France).
