Cycling Is Expensive...
A bidding war for a 1891 British-built Diamond Frame Safety model bike at an auction in England led to a record selling price of $255,000 (Can). This beat the old record of $111,000 for a 1880s tricycle. Time to pull out that old stuff you haven't used for a few years...
Birthday Greetings to...... elite road racer Tim Hadfield.
