For those who appreciate such things, here is a technical breakdown of Reggie’s new components…
Brakes – V insert pads, £8.98:
Mavic A719 rims (front & rear), £83.70 & spokes (72), £32.40:
Gear cables (outer & inner), £9.90:
Plus labour (£125), minus a 10% discount on parts, plus VAT = £366.82.
That’s the same as about four full tanks of petrol!
That puts my yearly spend to shame! is that the second set of rims you have toasted on that bike?
How much did Reggie cost new?
The list price for a Ridgeback Panorama back in early 2010 was £1,199…
Wow! That’s a serious bike…
