    Top 3 things on your wish list?

    With all of the cool stuff we have seen this week what is your top priority for a potential purchase? I personally love the (3) carbon frames we have been introduced to as well as the (3) carbon wheels but at the moment that's more bling than my wallet can stand. Since I have (2) lefty fatties now (and love them) I am also not in the market for inverted forks. My number one item to purchase will be the new Fatback 4.25 Sterling tires. After that I think it's a toss up between XX1, and Stan's tubeless rims. How about you?

    Those new higher engagement hope hubs would be sweet.

    I still want to get a good old Carver carbon fork and after that one of the new Hope Pro2 hubs coming out with the 40t engagement. Then some Fatback sterling tires for summer.

    The new Snowshoe tires from interbike.

    A 170mm frame that fits said snowshoe tire (and Lous too) on 100mm rims.

    100mm rims that weight less than 600 grams.

    Did you see the race face next cranks? Couple that with a new cassette, derailleur, hub...winning combination right there!

    Edit, my wishes. The stans rims when they are wider. Those snowshoe rubbers, and even though I just put on a turbine, that Next crank is the biz.
