2012 Cervelo S5 Team Black 48 Bicycle: The Bicycle of Champions

Cervello Racing BikeHere’s an item you don’t see everyday.  Up for auction today is this 2012 Cervelo racing bike which sells for as much as $10,000 new. Maybe Lance Armstrong forgot to pay his taxes. Just kidding. Now, you might be asking what makes this bike worth so much more than one you might find at Walmart or even a mid-priced bike shop. Cervelo has been manufacturing racing bikes since 1995, and these two-wheeled , machines are no joke. The company uses computer aided design (CAD), computational fluid dynamics, and wind tunnel testing at a variety of facilities including the San Diego Air and Space Technology Center to aid in its designs, according to its Wikipedia page. No wonder the company bills itself as the maker of the worlds’ fastest and lightest bikes. The bike up for auction comes in a shiny black finish with Vittoria Rubino Pro Slick Tires. It also comes with a CatEye Wireless Bike Computer and Bell Seat. This auction has not started yet. It begins on April 6th at 12:00 PM with a reserve price of $1,050. To learn more about this online auction all you have to do is click here to activate your 3 day free trial account!
