… think of them as an investment

These TLO bars from Schmolke must be some of the lightest handlebars available weighing between 130 – 150 grams*, they are also gold… well, gold plated. Lucky really because If they were solid gold we'd be talking around five and a half grand just for the gold, they'd probably be a bit flexy too. 

Mind you they will set you back €780 and you'd better be quick too if you want some because German weight weeny supremos, Schmolke are only making 10 sets. Then your only decision is what colour bar tape to cover your gold bars in, we're thinking black. If gold bars don't float your boat there's also a standard version of the TLO for €780.

*That's the weight for the standard TLO's we couldn't find one for the gold bars… d'you think they might be heavier?

Is 'Schmolke' German for Rapha?

What a shame to get them and then cover 70pc up with bar tape and STI units.
