The bike featured here is possibly the most advanced bicycle in the world. Engineers at BERU f1systems in Norfolk, England had combined F1 technology in the making of this bike. The bike is handbuilt by them and they named it Factor 001.
The price for the bike is £27,000 (RM124,000) and with that high price, customer will get a lightweight carbon monocoque frame completely customized to the owner’s physical measurements. The built and design is not governed by any rules for competitve cycling which means they can let their wild imagination into reality.
The bike can be design as per the wishes of the customer with their names engraved on the handlebars.Each model takes six highly skilled engineers a week to make. With only a limited number of bikes due to be built, we expect Factor 001 to become a desirable collector’s item.”
Built into the frame are “highly sophisticated load sensors, wiring, batteries, control cables and lines for its hydraulic braking system.” With additional electronics, the bike collects data on ergonometrics, biometrics, physical forces, and environmental factors. Data is displayed on the included LCD touch screen, but can also be downloaded onto a computer for analysis.
Currently, the bikes is on sales with carbon ceramic brakes and Shimano Di2 gear shift.The version with added electronics will be sold for £27,000. Only several hundred units of the Factor 001 will be produced.
