Dubai loves a most expensive story, usually, we are writing about the most expensive places or food and even gyms, however, this time its a BICYCLE, more specifically a triathlon bike, or time trial (TT) bike, and we happen to be part of the story.
Our charming founder, Richard Fitzgerald, who is a triathlon enthusiast, recently purchased the first Dimond Bike to be sold in the UAE.
The super sleek red bike costs only AED 73,400… no big deal pfft
Top-end bikes in Dubai can go for around AED 50,000 or AED 60,000. This setting bike was purchased at Ride Bike Shop on SZR. Luckily for Rich and his pocket, he knows the owner and was looked after on the overall deal.
Here is a break down of the bike details
In addition, the top of the range Enve SES 7.8 carbon wheels with Chris King Ceramic Hubs were added
The bike was custom made in Des Moines, Iowa
The result is absolutely stunning
The moment Rich collected his new ride, priceless!!
Rich has been cycling on the roads of Dubai since arriving here back in 2012
‘I’ve been riding TT bikes every since I moved to Dubai, and had often dreamed of owning a bike like this. I had a fixed gear bike custom made 10 years ago that I still ride around JLT, the experience of selecting each part, and having it made custom to your preferences, adds to the pleasure of riding the bike.
So investing in a TT bike, something that I can ride around Dubai in Al Qudra or in any of the triathlon races for the foreseeable future is something that I will get a lot of value out of.’
Ride Bike Shop are now the official distributors of Dimond Bikes in the UAE
A huge shoutout to Shahriar Khodjasteh the founder of Ride Bike Shop for the SLAYY work on the bicycle.
A brand new …and VERY expensive addition to the Lovin family
