Here we try and apply some science to finding the most expensive & worst value regular production road bike. Yes others have made simple lists of the highest price. Has anyone ranked bikes by price per gram? Yet we go one step further and create a mathematical (economic) model of fair bike value based on 1. bike weight 2. frame design 3. disc brake 4. electronic shifting. This model predicts final RRP with 80% accuracy (r=0.81) and the remaining 20% is due to pricing variations (ie value). We use out big database of 500 bike prices and weights to rank the worse value bikes for sale.

and yes we will run through the complete list of best saving pretty soon! (and maybe give some more insights into the model then)

For the record
Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Black Inc 2017 NonDisc non-Di2 version = fair value “£2985” actual £8999
Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod Black Inc 2017 NonDisc Di2 version = fair value “£5949” actual £8999
