Go on and post your own "budget dream bike".
for me, it's just the highest level tallboy carbon. i think.
Although I probably don't really need quite that much suspension, but since we are dreaming and all, I might as well dream beyond my skill level.

WOW! Cool, haven't seen a Xizang in awhile....friend of mine still has one, Team issue....I had two Zaskar LE back in the day...GREAT BIKES!
Already own it!
I already own my dream bike.
My dream bike doesn't exist... yet. I think my dream build some day will start off with a long discussion of bike geometry with a frame builder. I'm tired of being between a small and a medium. I want my own custom frame.
Firefly 29er with the ability to be run ether geared or single. Tyler does some insane work.
