$1900 Carbon Fiber Wal-Mart bicycle

Found via CycleCluster:

$1900 Wal-Mart bicycle

The Corsa FC carbon fiber road bike is built with a high quality Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and Shimano 105, ITM, Ritchey,and Sella Italia components. Carbon fiber absorbs road vibrations providing a smooth floating ride. At the same time, carbon fiber is a rigid material that maximizes the transfer of power from your pedaling to the wheels. This bike was assembled by the hands of skilled Italian mechanics to be tuned up and ready to ride right out of the box. We worked directly with the factory in Italy to offer you a premium ride at everyday low prices. Minimal assembly is required for this premium bicycle.
I'm sure it's laterally stiff yet vertically compliant. Available in Small, Medium, and Large.

I think you're ready to become a professional bike reviewer!

I wonder whose frame that is and what Ritchey/ITM/Selle Italia think of their components now being in WM.

When your $1900 carbon fiber bike needs work is the local Wal-Mart associate going to be able to assist you, and still sell vacuum cleaners.
