Road bikes can cost a small fortune - for some of these you could walk into a car dealership and walke out with a brand new car, but where's the fun in that?

We've picked our top 3 most expensive bikes - all of which you will be able to buy from selected retailers, none of them being unique one-off works.

From concept bikes for traithletes to Grand Tour winning bikes ridden by professionals, this list is the ultimate wish list for any roadie if they happen to win the lottery!

If you can't quite stretch to these then you could take a look at our range of Cannondale and Scott road bikes thata re currently in the sale.

Cervelo P5X eTap

Price: £13,499

New Car Equivalent: VW Polo

Cervelo PX5

The Cervelo is built for pure speed for traithletes - it is designed for triathletes as it doesn't fit the strict regulations for road racing set by the UCI, mainly due to the lack of seat tube or stays.

The bike is designed to be completely aero, with integrated storage for food and bottles that ensures limited aerodynamic impact, aero bars and low profile handlebars for maximum aerodynamics. 

The PX5 comes with SRAM Red eTap - SRAM's top groupset - along with ENVE SES 7.8 deep rim wheels to add to the space-age style looks.


BMC Teammachine SLR01 2018

Price: £10,000

New Car Equivalent: Renault Twingo

BMC Teammachine SLR01

Swiss manufacturers BMC have created a masterpiece with their latest Teammachine, always known for being an innovative model in road bikes. 

The 2018 version may look like a standard road bike but is packed with more features than Batman's utility belt. Look closely and you will not see any cables - from brakes or gears, any calipers or any stem - it's all integrated. 

An integrated handlebar allows for increased aerodynamics, along with hidden brake and gear cables through the frame and direct mount brakes which are fitted into the frame. Neat.


Pinarello Dogma F10

Price: £9,250

New Car Equivalent: Toyota Aygo

Pinarello F10 Dogma

The F10 has won several Grand Tours - mostly underneath Chris Froome. The latest of these are his 2017 Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana wins where he became the first British rider to do this Grand Tour double - the third rider in the sport's history to do it after Anquetil and Hinault.

 The bike comes with Shimano's top level Dura Ace Di2 groupset with electronic shifting, the integrated cables ensuring there isn't a messy cable in sight to spoil the attractive geometry of the frame. 

The carbon fibre frame itself takes advantage of flatback tube profiles which have been shown to have increased aerodynamic benefit. Whether that's true or not, it's definitely on our hit list.
