Met a guy out riding earlier with his new $17k bike

Speedvagen:

It was very like this one I google image searched for. Just more mono chromatic. No blue, but lots of silver, metallic, and shades of silver/greys/blacks. Same pump paint pattern carry over...

His was Di2 Dura-Ace, this one in the pic is cabled D/A.

I will put it this way, if I am him out on my $17k one off custom bike and saw the one in this pic... I would be pissed. It is way more similar than different than the one I saw. Just different colors in the scheme.

I dunno

My Sachs looks exactly like a thousand others.

I doubt this guy was paying for a custom paint job.

Did Richard call yours a one-off?

Custom geometry makes a bike a "one-off". The paint doesn't necessarily have anything to do with it. Heck, a custom Ti bike doesn't even need paint, yet is can certainly be a one-off.

OTOH, a one-off paint job can be applied to an off-the-shelf frame. Does that make the bike a "one-off"?

No

I don’t know what a “one-off” is, or who called this bike one. My Sachs is a custom bike, built to my measurements, weight, etc. He built one of them.

Check this eBay Sachs frameset out. Quite nice in its own right. If it was 130 spaced and had under instead of over BB cable routing, I might have considered finding out more what constitutes Sachs Tour Geometry...
