If I won the lotto I would have my own facility and a team of engineers, designers, welders, my own R&D department for advances in carbon and alternate materials, the sky would be the limit.
Ultimately I would have a collection of custom bikes all outfitted head to toe with components made in house.
I would love to have the bikes that only exist in my imagination and I would like to develope something that would contribute to the advancement of what is possible with the bicycle.
I'm happy with the bike I have but I don't think my lust for something better could ever be satiated, so if I could spend the rest of my days tweaking out and thinking about bikes I would. I really like bikes.
Sorry, but if I'm gonna dream it's going to entail a little more than brand name stuff.
ok in reality I'd take a custom build with Canfield Yelli Screamy or Evil Sovereign

Got mine already
i'm riding my dream bike
Hal u cant possi ly tell me that those rims are ur dream rims.... after ibjust pusted up carbon 240pt hubs....
The Santa Cruz Heckler is a bike I've been eyeing for a little while and may be my next MTB.
For now, I ride a 2011 Kona Fire Mountain. It is an entry level bike with unspectacular componentry and parts but I can ride my local trails as well as any of my buddies if not better. Some of my friends are equipped far better than I and call my fork a pogostick but I can outride those buggers anyway so I don't care. :P

I've got no complaints they are as nice as the Easton ec90xc 29" wheels we have on my wife's bike.

That does not work because I enjoy multiple disciplines.
A Dirtbag since 1969.
A Knomer since 2007.
RM Slayer . . .
I already have mine (Carbon Nomad and Trek HiFi Pro)... so instead of asking for my dream bike, I'll take that $5-10k and spend it on dream bike TRIPS.
I think #1 on my list would be Nepal.
I'd buy one!

My dream mountain bike would be about 18 lbs, full-suspension, something that feels like 6" of travel on the down and a hardtail on flat and the up's. It also needs very little maintenance (i.e. replacing chain or components) and was built of all recycled materials.
Oh, and the frame will also be able to hold 2 water bottles.
The road/cx bike will have built in directional's.
Trek Superfly 100 with full XTR setup Continentals X-kings And custom paintjob that would say Gary Fisher on it. Aluminium Santacruz Nomad and a 2005 GF Hoo Koo E Koo in mint condition for sentimental value.
Oh yeah forgot the custom built 26" titanium HT!
I have my dream bike as well.. mojo HD love it... I would definitely have many dream bikes.... plural! I really want to get a superlight hardtail 29er or something for racing but can't bring myself to spend the money
I think for me it's more like someone else said.. love the bike I have, would use all the money to ride the most interesting trails in the world... travel all over with my dream bike, not just sit inside trying to figure out how I could make my bike better.. but.. where can I go next?
determined to put the "mountain" back in "MOUNTAIN BIKING!!!" "HIT IT!"
2012 MOJO HDeeeeeeee!!!!

Just lost an old Gary Fisher Hoo Koo e Koo that was my boyfriend's dream bike when he was a kid. I got it stolen by locking it up wrong... looking to replace it.
Hope you get the Gary Fisher back. Mine would be a carbon Pivot Mach 5.7 With XTR bits or Saint where it mattered.

There is no such thing. it would be like having a dream computer or phone. They change too quickly these days. I flip them every year and get new ones.
My Felt Nine Team is my dream bike.... for now
2013 Specialized Tarmac S-Works LTD Black
SRAM Red Group
ENVE 6.7 Clincher Wheelset
Michelin Pro 4 Tires
Shimano Dura Ace PD-7900 Pedals
Specalized S-Works Toupe Saddle
2013 Specialized Epic S-Works (Satin Black)
SRAM X0 Group
ENVE Sweep Bar
ENVE 29 XC Wheelset
Racing Ralph Tires
Crank Brothers Egg Beater 3 Pedals
Specalized Toupe Pro Saddle
Lucky me, I got the Tarmac earlier this summer and my Epic is on order
My dream bike is a norco range LE but I couldn't afford it so I got the range 3 instead.
Pretty much already have it. SC Blur LTc. CK hubs laced to DT Swiss rims. Pretty much full SRAM XO/XX. RS Rev 140. RP23. Joplin seatpost.
Id change a couple things if I had the money laying around. Id switch out for a Float 150. and ENVE carbon rims (just bought soem Stans Flows but havent built the wheels). and Id get a different adjustable seatpost because the Joplin is a bit underwhelming. And I'd switch out the brakes for some Formula's or XTRs.
I can never have a dream bike due to my moral objection to the bike industry greed. Really blows because there are so many great bikes not to be had no matter how much money I have. Simple matter of principal. Iv'e gotten frugal as I age.
Then there's the poser factor. It would be like your grandma driving to the store in a red ferrarri.
Or I'm on the trail, other rider pulls up and says "DUDE" that's a nice bike, how much was it? My answer, oh the full kit was 11.000. Other rider, why are you pushing up that? And then says my mom just bought a Ford Fiesta brand new for the same price.
I say this all in fun, and admit I am a tad hypocritical with moto racing for 20-years.
So my answer is a (2012) not 13 Kona unit.
I already have mine... and YES I have real pedals on it now!
I own BOTH of my "dream bikes".....One or the other is perfect to handle just about any trail in My area......2008 Trance X2 with a Reverb and a 2011 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO hardtail.....IF I had to choose just one it would be the EVO without a doubt.
