    The one I'm riding on any given day.....

    I have three bikes. They are all paid for. They all work well. When I trash one I'll consider a new one. Right now, I don't dream of bikes but rather places to ride bikes.

    ideally with a set of Arch's and some more carbon bits (like SP, Bar, Stem). but i'm a man of modest means, this is more bike than i should ever need!

    An affordable sub 18 pound full suspension bike. That has zero suspension bob even when hammering out of saddle.

    Also would like it to somehow give me the ability to get out of work early so I have more time to ride.

    I don't know if there is a vendor that makes my dream bike but I know what it is and I think I'll be building it up myself in the next year or so using my New Goblin as a base.

    It'd be a Carbon HT 29er with geometry like the HF-FM056. Ideally it'd not have the front derailleur hanger or openings for the internal routing for that as I want a dedicated 1x10. I also want replicable rear dropouts.

    XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur and XT shifter.

    Some nice hydraulic disc brakes. I'm pretty happy with my current Avid Elixir 7's so maybe those will move over.

    Rock Shox Reba RL with remote lockout.

    Some other nice lightweight carbon bits and a light wheelset. Ideally the whole thing would weigh around 23 lbs.

    Yes I know what you mean, The time gap from when they said it was coming & when people can get it just keeps growing.

    I may even have my XX1 Rip9 RDO befor the Ripley comes out.

    I read an article in Bike a while back I thought was pretty cool.

    The ideal bike would be one that evolves just like we do.
    If you don't ride it for a while, it gets heavier, the cables get loose, things need adjusting etc.
    If you start riding more downhill it will gain a few mm, adjust tread pattern and rubber consistency depending on whether you ride wet slickrock or gravel.
    If you start riding more fireroads it will stiffen and get a steeper head angle.

    You get the picture. The article made it sound even cooler. A bike that responds and adapts.

    As a side note, it's cool how trek sort of does that with an adjustable BB on the slash.

    I'm lucky enough to have pretty close to my dream bikes right now. The build kits are fairly modest though. I would like to build my TR250 with a full Saint group and Chromag parts, and Hope/Flow EX wheelset set up tubeless.

    I have a dream trail bike in mind these days though which I doubt will ever come to fruition:

    '13 Banshee Spitfire
    Fox Float 160CTD 27.5
    Hope Pro III / Flow EX 650b
    Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5 x 2.35
    SRAM XX1 1x11 drivetrain
    Chromag bar/stem/saddle
    Not sure what brakes...

    Carbon fibre FS fatbike with 100mm front Fox fork.

    Sadly none of the above exists, no frame, forks or carbon.....

    Soon though, just need some more of you to get with it, you will all be riding them soon, its like telling you that you would be riding a 29er in 2008 :0

    I came from a Fuel EX8. The Pivot is great. Not a plush plow through everything bike - but once you've got a line you're golden. I'm really enjoying it.

    I would have to say dream bike(s) because I ride on the road, fire roads, gravel, singletrack, over rocks and roots, through streams and sand, and up steep hills, so no single bike would ever be adequate.
    Plus when I am thinking about riding my mood changes, I might really be itching for a mountain bike ride at night, or I might want to hurt myself for 4 hours on the road doing steep hills.
    If I had to have one bike, it would be a full suspension mountain bike. Or maybe a cross bike. Or maybe a road bike. See where I'm going with this

    S-Works Epic 29er, demoed one at my LBS, woot, it rides like my American Eagle, very good! I also tested a Stumpjumper 29er with Sram X9 stuff on it, Didn't like it, doesn't track well.
