27. Yeah but...
How much did the mountain bike cost?

I recall much consternation over Kerry having a road bike that costs "over five thousand dollars." How much was the shrubs? Was is a gift? Where was it made? Taiwan? China? Kerry's Serotta was made in the USA.
Read more about it here.

Aside... I just have to laugh when the uninformed make statements like "Wow!. A bicycle that costs $5000!" Five thousand dollars is certainly a lot of money, but no one would be shocked about paying 5 grand for a motorcycle. Road and mountain bicycles have become as sophisticated as formula one cars. It's personal with me because I used to work in the bicycle industry for over 10 years and have sold over a thousand bicycles to people.


PS. I'm about to go terrorize Santa Cruz on my American made S&M 24" cruiser, which costs over $1600....LOL
