Ever wanted to buy something that was just SO COOL, but SO NOT worth it??

Of course the answer is yes, because we ALL do this ALL the time… BUT I don’t think I could justify this purchase.. I would rather by a Republic Bike!  You will definitely get way more than your money and still look damn good!

Check out these extremely expensive designer bicycles!

Chanel has designed an eight-speed bicycle! The bike has been created as part of Chanel’s Spring/Summer `08 offering to celebrate the heritage of the house, which is steeped in Coco Chanel’s love of sport. She would be proud to ride next season’s hand-finished Chanel bike, which is accented with the house’s signature quilted leather and double-C logo. Available in Chanel boutiques in December, priced approximately $8,938!

 

Fendi have just released a bicycle named the Fendi Abici Amante Donna which comes in two versions.

One version comes decked out with Fendi’s Selleria leather accessories (a key and bike chain cover, leather gps navigation holder and a detachable Fendi case) which costs $5,900.

A more expensive version which comes complete with everything plus removable fur saddlebags for $9,500.

The Fendi Abici Amante Donna bicycle is designed for women and is available exclusively from Fendi flagship stores.

Personally, I would prefer function over luxury when purchasing a $3,500 bike!
