That would be the one you're riding that doesn't stop 1 millisecond before you go "Oh-Sh..AAAAAAHHAHHHhhh........"oreo321321 said:Just for kicks, what is the most expensive freeride/downhill bike out there?
Hi,smudge said:I'm sure someone could fill in the holes for me but...
back in 1992 there was a company who built a lugged beryllium tubed frame and attached a bunch of wacky components to it. I seem to remember that the frame cost about $30K to produce.
...If only I had kept my Mountain Bike mags from back then. Remember Captain Don?
Which was one of American's aluminum frames. A buddy of mine had an American ELFeman said:beria, are you saying you spent 28k on a bike frame???
Probably not that expensive. Looks more like some someone at intense had too much time on their hands and a few '99 M1 front ends they needed to find some use for.Fast Eddy said:Certainly over $10k...

I remember reading about that beryllium frame. Fancy stuff. But I also remember a blurb a few months later that someone broke into the AMerican offices (or wherever the stuff was being kept) and stole the $28000 bike frame!!!beria said:Hi,
snip... As far as I remember the Beryllium frame was the lightest ever mountain frame weighting at 1100g (I�m not sure if it is still the lightest) and sold for 28,000$ a piece. It is a pity the company went bancrupt in the mid 90�s...snip
