It turns out that many of the the world's most expensive bikes are not about the go fast innovations and materials that makes today's modern bikes such marvels of technology.
No, they are more about the old school stuff that makes everything expensive like gold and diamonds.
Take for example this bike (the number one most expensive bike on the list):
The Aurumania’s Gold Bike Crystal edition
It cost about $114,464 (that's delivered anywhere in the world), and according to the web site SidiErgo.com:
"The Aurumania Gold Bike Crystal edition is plated almost entirely plated with 24 karat gold… right down to the spokes. The Brooks saddle seat is made with the finest leather; and the hand sewn handlebar grips are made from, chocolate brown leather. The numbered badge is even made of high grade leather. This top of the line bike is called the “Crystal edition” because it is decorated with more than 600 Swarovski crystals… right down to the crystal encrusted Aurmania brand name emblazoned along the crossbar in Braille.
The Crystal edition is undoubtedly the world’s most expensive bicycle, and to add to its value is the fact that it is a limited edition item. Only ten will be made, making the Aurmania Gold Crystal Edition an extremely valuable rarity, indeed."
