Yep. I'd jump straight on a brand spanking new Baum.

I'd also consider a CF Ritte in black/white
Image

or their 1919TT bike.

A Canyon Speedmax TT bike would also be up there.

Ritte and Baum aren't even in the same class..

Don't know why everyone is drooling over Baums. Still just a collection of welded tubing. :P

For me I would spend it on a Independent Fabrication XS frameset, Campy Super Record, Thomson cockpit and seat post, those Royce hubs RichTi is selling laced into some H Plus Son rims.

Cheers
Dave.

As opposed to some burnt plastic, molded into some epoxy resin? :P

I'd probably go for a Black Sheep High Light SL, a Moots Psychlo X and a FatBack Titanium Slider Deluxe. No point being greedy.

I'd hang on until XTR Di2 comes along & hang it on a funky carbon dual-suspension frame - don't quite know what yet. Fox Kashima shock & fork & nice light carbon wheels. That'd take care of about half of it....
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

19k eh.

Then spend the change on an all-weather commuter and a couple of power meters.

No-one's mentioned the IMPEC?

Lambo edition anyone?

I'd personally rip out that digital stuff myself, but hey... each to their own 8)

I'll would wait a few months and get the new Scott Addict, with Campy and another set of Reynolds 46C.
And of course a Baum for the sunny coffee rides 8)

Not sure how much one of these baby's would cost, the bike that is but if I had change from $19K I would also get a "rainy day" bike

Image

Obviously some nice TWE's on both of them :D

Why not a Parlee Z3 with custom paint, Shimano 9070 Di2, Enve 3.4 wheelset with Alchemy hubs, full ENVE finising kit incl bars, seatpost, stem and fork and SRM power meter, SWORKS saddle.

should just about swallow the whole $19K when you add in other kit like Arundle Mandible cages and saddle bag and some lights etc etc

I should know cos it is on order

If you had $19k why would you buy something inferior?
