Good idea: spot for briefcase on a bike. Bad idea: bike costs $1300

That’s a nice looking bike. A bit of suspension on the front… nice commuter frame… I’d pay $500. What’s that, it costs more than twice that? I assume there are gold nuggets inside the frame. No? Indeed. Then I’ll bid you good day, sir.

This design from TATO
is a good idea — nobody wants to bungee their stuff onto one of those racks — but the price really is quite a lot for what seems otherwise to be a decent mid-range commuter bike. The gear arrangement is Shimano, though. I guess when you consider high-mid-range parts and a bit of a designer premium, $1300 (1500 Swiss Francs) is understandable, if not entirely justified.
