    What is your DREAM BIKE?

    I'm always surfing these forums looking at all these flashy bikes and my dream bike has been slowly evolving in my head. So here it is:

    Frame Size & Color: Yeti SB66 Black
    Fork: FOX 36 150 KASHIMA 20
    Brakes: Shimano XTR
    Cranks: Shimano XTR FC-M980 10 Speed
    Front Derailleur: SRAM XX
    Rear Derailleur: SRAM XX
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy 11
    Stem: Thomson X4
    Handlebar: Crank Brothers Cobalt 11
    Seatpost: Crank Brothers Kronolog Dropper post
    Saddle: Fizik Gobi 00
    Bottom Bracket: Chris King Ceramic Bottom Bracket
    Cassette:Shimano XTR CS-M980 Dyna-Sys 10 Speed Cassette
    Headset: Chris King Titanium
    Grips: ODI Lock-on
    Wheelset: Crank Brothers Cobalt 11
    Tires: Michelin Wide Grip'R 2

    Like I said its constantly evolving, who knows what it will be in few months.

    I wish I had a picture of this bike, but if you have a picture of yours feel free to post it.

    Love Yeti! I have one of my dream bikes - Yeti AS-X and next I would like to get an ASR5 - for light XC duty... Had to settle for a Trek Fuel EX5 which is a great bike. Just love Yeti though.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.

    One made out solid gold with some gemstones. I'm assuming that a sold gold bike would weigh in around 100 lbs. (1500 troy oz at $1600/oz = $2.4M), add in $600,000 in gemstones to make it an even $3M bike.

    Then I would sell it, buy a generic specialized/trek full suspension and use the rest to support me quitting my job and riding every day in cool places.

    When someone figures out that a 6k bike is really worth 1k.

    As there are MX bikes with more tech that cost the same and they also come with a motor
    What goes up must come down

    I like what I got. Is there a better bike out there? You bet. Is there something wrong with my bike? Not a damn thing . . . .
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    Toss up between a Seven Ti hardtail or a S-Works Stumpjumper Carbon hardtail.

    My dream bike would be to have 5 or 6 (or more). I built my dream bike last year as well, a mojo HD. I built it up at the 150/140 travel front/rear. I would love to get a second one with 170/160, maybe a new 29'er or two. Since I'm living in a dream world I'm going to assume that I would have time to ride daily...

    Right now it'd be a Yeti 303 WC, Fox suspension, Saint gears & brakes, with some tasty carbon wheels.

    But...the product managers say their R&D and materials cost so much more than the motorycles! They just defended their prices in a recent magazine. And they are crazy! The prices are so high because people pay them. No way in the world does it cost more to make a bicycle of ANY material, aluminum, carbon, etc than it does to build a motorcycle. Period.


    My dream bike will never exist.

    I don't think a dream bike can ever be attained, because once you get it you want another. It's always changing with experience and technology.

    I'm fortunate enough to own my "dream bike", one of the benefits of working at a shop.

    Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29 with all the goodies. I might switch away from Avids just to be different than what I've always had. Sometime.

    I love my Ellsworth Evolve. The only thing I don't like is that I can't put a waterbottle in the front triangle. I would love to have the handling and suspension of the ellsworth incorporated into a custom TI front triangle that has room for a waterbottle.

    Whoa it does! Or more likely, the Hong Fu bike looks like the Specialized.
