    Gucci has collaborated with the world’s oldest bike maker to create the Bianchi by Gucci bicycle (www.gucci.com). Riders can choose between the white steel, single-speed model for $6,200 and the matte black, carbon-fiber 11-speed for $14,000. Both come with leather saddles and leather handgrips and display the red-and-green Gucci crest on their frames. Matching accessories include a helmet ($890), gloves ($250 to $305), and a water bottle ($105).
