This $2,500 tricycle is pretty straightforward. Made of titanium, the hook is the trike is nigh indestructible, meaning rich little snots can pedal around the driveway without fear of bending the frame or snapping it in two. Racing to the mailbox for the latest Hammacher Schlemmer catalog has never been safer. A carbon (fiber?!) seat, white leather saddle and white rims complete the look. Just be wary of that silver spoon in your kids' mouth as jockey for position at playtime. Hello? Choking hazard, anyone? [Jan via FirstBike]
Umm, my bike is made of steel, it's 13t years old, and I ride the crap out of it, and the frame is fine. How many 4 year olds are there out there, really, who are snapping their frames jumping legos?
Titanium isn't nearly as pricey as the marketing weasel want us to believe, right now it's around $50 a pound. The tubing here, might weigh 2 pounds.
