    My list of "must rides" at I-bike Dirt Demo. How about you?

    In no particular order, here's a list of bikes I really want to throw a leg over at the I-bike demos. Some because they're new and different, others just because I'm interested for my own personal bike, and some just to see what all the hub-bub is about.

    Giant Reign X
    Corvair Maelstrom
    Knolly Delirium T
    Ibis Mojo
    Chumba XCL
    Intense Spider 29er (5.5 29er too if it's available by then)
    Titus Racer X 29er
    Rip WFO (again, if it's available)
    Pivot Mach 5 (rode this last year but had a somewhat negative impression mostly because I was on the wrong size. I need a medium)
    Pivot 429
    Trek Remedy
    GT Sanction 1.0
    Norco Fluid LT
    Blur LT 2
    Intense Tracer VP (Duh)
    Bionicon Edison
    Gary Fisher Roscoe
    Turner RFX (interested to see how the updates for '09 will change this benchmark)
    Titus FTM
    Pivot Mach 6

    What do you have on your dance card? Should I add anything else?

    God, I wish I could go! Turner RFX Pivot 429 and Blur LT2 would be must rides for me. Guess I'll go out and ride my 575 now.

    Dont make me be the bad guy...

    Do I need a pass to ride this trail?

    Ummmm, pretty much everything you guys listed is what I want to ride. Can there be a more comprehensive list of todays "hot" bikes than that?
    www.cycletofitness.com It's only a super-awesome website for a super-awesome store. Just click it. I dare you.

    Hey, no kidding. I've been there. This is the wish list but something that catches my eye at a booth without a line will difinitely risk being snatched up. Too many bikes. Too little time.

    Oh, and add the new Nomad onto my list while you're at it. I'm interested to see how the changes affect it.

    Big Mama

    El kaboing

    Whatever this new Salsa is

    Pivot 429

    Anything gucci and Titanium

    Cannondale 29ers (Scalpel?)

    Gary Fisher Superfly

    Bionicon something or other. Gotta see what the deal is with these things

    Specialized Enduro SL

    Roubaix SL-2 S-Works

    Something with new Avid Ultimate Mags on it

    Something with a remote lockout Fox on it.

    Shimano SLX groupo

    One slot saved for something completely ridiculous that everyone else just laughs at. Like last year's hands-free drinking system.

    Oh yeah, there are definitely some components I'm interested in trying too. The Avid Elixer, new marta's, Fox 32 150mm with 15mm TA, Crank Brothers new Cobalt and Iodine wheels, etc.

    And I've just added the new Titus FTM trail bike to my list as well as the Pivot Mach 6.

    Dang I'm going to be busy. Any size large folks who ride Time pedals out there want to team up to cover more ground?

    Dang.

    Now with the '09 Turner line being leaked and all the changes there with the DW link etc I'm going to have to ride the RFX, Sultan, and Spot.

    My list is getting too long. Time to cut a few off.

    See my updated list above. My edit option has ran out so I'll edit it down here.

    Scratch the Maelstrom, Spider 29er, and the Edison... add the Sultan and Spot.

    *Still looking for a test crew that take a size large frame and use time pedals. I'm flexible and can ride a medium pretty comfortably in most bikes and actually require a medium in a few. I also have CB and SPD pedals if need be.

    KRob... I ride Crank Brothers pedals and med-large frames. Stay in touch, and we'll be able to get several rides by switching off!!

    Ok adding the Hammerschmidt crank to my list of must ride components along with the Rase adjustable seat post.

    Not sure how I left the El Guapo off but would definitely like to ride the new EG too.

    Put some Crank Brothers cleats on and follow me.
    I ride large and have VIP access at a few tents. Amazing what a few Bellagio chips can get you.

    Oh, and I'm bringing some newly minted Titus FTM jerseys for the gang from Tempe.
    They'll put a cold Fat Tire in your bottle cage and give you a push down the trail for one of those.

    Now to see what it would take to get a backrub from one of the Marzocchi models. Bella!
