Would You Pay $16,000 For A Bicycle? How About $500,000?

You're looking at the Cervélo P5X high performance triathlon bike, which costs between $11,000 and $16,000 depending on the specifications preferred. It's one of the most anticipated triathlon bikes for 2018. Cervélo states on its website that the P5X is "the world’s fastest, most technologically advanced tri bike has been engineered as a complete system that harmoniously addresses speed, fit and usage."

So, would you spend $16,000 on a bike? Before you answer, you should probably know that you could spend more for a bike... A LOT more! The Trek Butterfly Madone, by designer Damien Hirst, used real butterflies to adorn the high end performance mountain bike as a tribute to Lance Armstrong’s return to the cycling circuit after surviving cancer. Even with the butterflies, this mountain bike was made for racing and can perform well, like any other bikes Armstrong rode in his career. The cost? $500,000 -- yes, that's right... HALF A MILLION! It's the most expensive mountain bike you can buy.
