They aren’t too expensive abroad. The one below is €3,000 and would make a decent commuter / travel bike:
My Miyata cost me about €300 and is an indecently fun commuter bike. True, I've spent an additional €200 or so on it since buying it. But I've kept the parts I took off it, and if I switched them back (tubulars, corncob) it would be pretty good for an "Eroica"-era criterium. (It would; I wouldn't.) As for travel, I'm sure that Maxx is good in its way, but somehow the sight of it fills me with gloom. Here's more prettily photographed Rohloff bikepr0n; I don't know how much these cost, but they'll be priced in incredibly shrinking quid.
