    Just got my dream bike today. 2012 Remedy 9. Traded it for my Stumpy FSR Carbon 29er even up with a good friend, and both of us are very happy... 29er was a very cool bike, but just did not handle like this thing does!

    Give me a 2013 Kona Kahuna or a Scott Scale 29 Comp and I'll be more than satisfied.

    Then again, I'm happy with just my 2011 GT Avalanche entry level

    For me the S-works Epic 29er. I have the carbon epic 29er and absolutely love it but I would like the next level of components and 21# would be nice also.

    The latest greatest whiz bang whammy bird carbon fiber ant fart bike parts don't interest me a whole lot. I feel that really hauling ass is at least %90 pilot. I'd rather show up on outdated gear and show the trail who is boss instead of having a $10,000 hole in the bank account and riding like a chump.

    That said, I have my dream bike, 2008 Giant Trance X with a dropper post and a Fox TALAS fork. I've demo'd a few other bikes and they are different than mine, but, are they better? There is a very slim chance they are, but its certainly not worth spending $3,000 to find out they aren't.

    Don't be stupid, an off the showroom floor MX bike is the equivalent of a Wally World mountain bike.

    To the person who mentioned a gold bike, there are many materials that are worth way more then gold by weight. A bike weighing 10 pounds of enzymes and chemicals that are sold in the picograms would be worth more than the entire world's GDP. Even something as simple as a bike made of saffron would cost more than a gold bike for two reasons.

    I love my Yeti SB95, like it's not just a summer thing.

    BUT, a full-carbon frame, with carbon "AM" rims on Chris King or Stealth hubs would be kind of sweet.

    Anybody got $6k so I can upgrade? :^)

    I must admit before finding this site I thought my present bike (2012 Trek Mamba) would have been my "dream bike". Reading about these other rides have made drool with anticipation. Having been a recent fan of Sonya Looney I would say her Canyon MTB. That is exactly the type of riding I would like to do. I wouldn't mind doing a slow upgrade on my bike, thus making it "MY" personal build dream bike.

    I drooled over the Trek Madone 7.9 WSD when I first heard about it (retails at $12K stock in the US). But I've learned not to have 'dream bikes' - my stock Madone series 4 has pleased me thus far, in my short ownership. I know it's good to dream an all, but I find so many bikes to be too similar to shell out an extra 10k. Of course, if I had money to throw around, I'd absolutely hop on something more expensive.
