    money no object?
    sheeyit.
    here we go.

    Frame: Independent Fabrications Beatstick OR Charge Bikes Iron Ti (have you seen these? sick!)

    Fork: Sherman Jumper with a titanium spring (but a light 3" travel traditional singlecrown from Avalanche would be a dream come true.)

    Headset: Chris King Steelset

    Crank: Profile Lite (titanium spindle.)

    Pedals: Shimano DX (personal preference. they feel real nice. i could pimp it and go with the Fly Ruben pedals though.)

    Chain: the nicest chain KMC makes

    Handlebar: Sic Race (personal preference. they feel real nice. i could pimp it and go with titanium bars but i forget who makes em.)

    Stem: Thomson X4 (but with 25.4mm clamp)

    Grips: ODI Ruffians (from before they started wearing out too fast.)

    Saddle: Shadow Crow (personal preference. it's a good seat.)

    Seatpost: Thomson (of course.)

    Brakes: Hope Mono Mini (only because Avid CPS aren't pimp enough. but they're my brake of choice.)

    Brake Levers: Hope Mono Mini (Shimano XTR if i ran the Avid.)

    Front hub: Profile OR Hadley

    Rear hub: Profile OR Hadley (singlespeed.)

    Spokes: the nicest spokes (titanium?) DT Swiss makes

    Rims: Arrow FRX

    Tires: DMR Motos

    just some thoughts.

    Actually I think my dream frame would be 26" wheeler Fall Guy. I might actually build that instead of my current custom frame.

    They don't make a 26" wheeled FG. If you want 26ers look at Nemesis. 24s are better anyways though IMO for tech riding, and especially street.

    I mean get the bike custom built for me.

    Using this design, which you will see is like a 26" fall guy in angles and measurements.

    Man, people are going to start thinking I try and post pictures of frame ideas all the time and crap. Please don't post feedback on the frame unless you PM me. I don't want this to change topic and I don't want any more problems with people thinking my ideas are stupid, because of my current situation with a bike.

    I wanted to resurrect this old thread, because more people need to post up their dream build. There's a dead giveaway on what my setup will be like on the NemPro too!

    hmm...

    I can't even do this, I just attempted it, but there are so many directions to take a build and so many component options... my attempts would read like 5 pages just listing out the options. I'm just pretty happy with my current bike.



    attempt #1

    Eastern 24" Version of the Titanium Grim Reaper w/ geo similar to a USB Molly, but a bit lower bb height
    w/ integrated ht and Spanish BB, welded on seatclamp, 14mm drops, no V-bosses or guides...
    FSA Impact Pro
    NemPro 4X air @ 65-80mm
    Premium C-Clamp stem w/ hollow chromo bolts
    (9er wawyd steerer cap w/ various brew caps, could start out with Sierra Nevada as that was what was in my hand tonight)
    Atomlab Trailpimp daytona bar 2.5" rise, cut down to 24.5" and tapped for Tree bar-ends
    Animal Edwin Delarosa grips
    Syncros DPS32 24" 36h rims - maybe I'd drill out the front?
    Profile 20mm no-disc mount front hub
    Eastern26 14mm SS cassette hub w/ 11t 1-pc driver and custom hollow 14mm axle and "fun bolts"
    DT competition 14/15g spokes / brass nips (wish I could use torque nips with those rims)
    Kenda Kiniption rear tire
    Schwalbe Tabletop kevlar front tire
    Odyssey Wombolt 175 cranks (maybe those new Fly cranks as another option?)
    Fly spanish bb & cone spacers
    Tree Lite or Superstar 25t sprocket for 22mm Wombolt spindle (If I were using a traditional 19mm 48spline profile style spindle, I'd opt for the Tree spline drive Lite sprocket and no mount bolt)
    TSC Interlock V2 chain
    Animal Steven Hamilton sealed or Dangerboy platforms
    Macneil SL seat
    Macneil Pivotal 25.4 stump
    Knight Ti Pivotal bolt
    Hope Mono Mini 140mm w/ 2pc carrier rotor in rear only and with Dangerboy lever blade, and Goodridge long hose.

    that about sums up that one...
