A little something for someone special

Published November 20, 2012

LA FUYE, France (BRAIN) — No need to wait for Black Friday. Holiday shoppers with a cycling fan on their list can get started today thanks to The Robb Report's "21 Ultimate Gifts" issue. The magazine for the disturbingly wealthy consumer features a $181,000 cycling vacation centered around next summer's 100th edition of the Tour de France and a visit to the Cyfac factory to pick up a custom Absolu V2 bike.

The "factory delivery event" also includes a pro wind tunnel session.  From there, the recipient and five friends visit Cyfac's factory for a behind-the-scenes look at the bike building in action.  They then ride a closed-road stage of the Tour ahead of the pros, meet the pro team of their choice, attend the jersey presentations at the Tour podium, and follow a stage in a Tour vehicle.

An additional full week of riding taking the riders through the Alps includes a special daily custom riding kit, custom shoes and custom-painted helmet. The package also includes first-class travel, a dedicated support vehicle, team soigneur, helicopter transfers and top-notch cuisine, accomodations, wine and more.

The Robb Report's gift issue also includes a $14 million boat, a $995,000 pen and a $1.5 million wine collection. 

Cyfac's Eric Sakalowsky is happy to let Robb readers know that the company also "offers much more accessible factory delivery options and custom bike builds to starting at $3,500."
