Royal ride

Princess Diana's childhood bike has been sold at auction, fetching more than $2,000. For that kind of dough, we expect it's a carbon-fiber Apple Crate, with a five-speed Dura-Ace shifter on the top tube and a PowerTap. We should be getting a peak at it tomorrow.

Meanwhile, we'll be bidding on a half-eaten Shot Block, a jockey pulley, and several spoke nipples traced to Camilla Parker Bowles.
