    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.

    There's a lot of better bikes out there for $600-$800 though. That thing is way over priced unless that's in pesos

    I wish I were a strong enough rider to get away with a bike like that. Imagine showing up to a fast (like 23+ mph avg) hammerfest with one, pull the group for 80% then dropping them in a Merckx-esque breakaway. Then, after the ride, talk about how you bought it to 'upgrade' from the Campy SR equipped NeilPryde you were riding before. The mind boggles.

    Except if you pedal hard or go fast, it might actually break...

    Even Bikes Direct doesn't sell this bike. That should tell you something.

    Just in case you guys can't sell a kidney or something to get the Machete there are options They also have the New High Fashion Man XC-550 EUROBIKE



    Looks like a nice quality steel frame (high carbon even), with some choice components.

    Weight: 16KG (35lb of glorious steel)
    Speed: 21 Speeds
    Frame: High Density Carbon Steel Frame
    Fork: High Density Carbon Steel
    Stem: Aluminum Stem
    Seat Post: Carbon Steel
    Saddle: Professional Mountain Bike Seat

    Rim: Double Layers Strong 70H Aluminum Alloy
    Hub: Eurobike Quick Release Hub
    BB: Waterproof BB
    Brake: Integrated Brake System

    Spoke:45# Steel

    Looks like a perfect compromise at half the cost and yes those are aluminum rims...

    Edit can't believe I forgot the link

    The Eurobike should be less because it's not set up as a racing machine like the Machete. The brakes are not on the drops.

    I can't believe you can get a carbon framed bike... excuse me, a carbon steel framed bike for this price. Incredible


    I really like the rims on the Machete Delux. They look like they slice through the wind.

    I wish I could borrow one of these and show up to some pretentious group ride.

    This bike does it all. The red one at least is also a CX bike, and comes with a Specialized crank!

    I really wish I were a frame builder specializing in carbon frames. I'd sooooo copy that design into something at a reasonable weight and reproduce the graphics. It'd be worth the work just to screw with people.

    The hour record of what? Wasted effort? Comic relief?

    I see that all of these come with those new modern "dick" brakes.
