Pass on the road bike, but I'd love to pick up that hybrid if they decide to produce it.

"Well, it was either produce the bicycle or lowering springs for the GS. I guess Toyota went with the bicycle."

As well an F Sport or TRD variant for those who don't want the run of mill Lexus or Toyota bicycle.

While their $10K asking price for a bike with this level of components is not outrageous, especially given the exclusivity of it, you could build this exact bike yourself for under $6,500 and then just slap the Lexus and F-Sport logos on it. I am in the process of building a similar bike right now and thought it would be cool to do a black & blue color scheme like my ISF and put the F logo on it, and in doing some searching for logos that's when I came across this thread.

Here is the complete parts list along with the corresponding costs:

Frame & Front Fork - 3K Carbon Fiber: $400
Handlebars - 3T Ergonova UD Carbon Fiber: $105
Stem - 3T ARX UD Carbon Fiber: $65
Headset - FSA Carbon Fiber cap: $60
Saddle - Selle Italia SLR Carbonio: $195
Seatpost - FSA Carbon w/Di2 Battery mount: $170
Groupset - Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 (Levers, F & R Derailleurs, Brakes, Chain, Cassette, Crank, Bottom Bracket): $3,710
Pedals - Shimano PD-A530: $66
Wheels - Shimano Dura-Ace WH-9000-C50-CL: $1,500
Tires - Panaracer Race Type A: $90

Total cost: $6,361. And you could save some serious money by going with the regular (non-electric) Dura-Ace 9700 groupset which is only $1,619 - bringing the total cost down to $4,270. Still one hell of a bike but just with manual shifting instead of electric. You could also go with the generic C50 wheels for $410 instead of $1,500, lowering the total price to a much more reasonable $3,180.

If I were spending $6K, plenty of nice factory and custom to choose from. A spell back when I was lusting for a new bike I thought about a Holland ExoGrid but it's way more bike than this tourist level rider could possibly explore. Bill was at a past San Diego Custom Bike show along with many other drool worthy makers. The North American Handmade Bicycle Show would be to go to.

Post a pic of your build when you get it completed.
