    Pedals: Shimano Saint
    Shock: Fox Float Kashima @ 130mm
    Saddle: WTB Volt Race
    Tyres: Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 trailstar w/ Maxxis tubes

    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.

    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.
    The cake is a lie.
