    I'd take the Scott Spark 10, an XC race bike coming in at under 23 pounds but still with dual suspension, front and rear lockout, etc. The Spark Ltd. would be nice, at under 22 pounds, but I'm not sure I'd want the integrated seat post. Here is a link if anybody wants to send my wife a hint for father's day coming up soon:

    A Ti 29er, SS specific. Such as the new Optimus Ti that Vassago will be coming out with, or maybe a custom ride. With all the best spec of course.

    I don't know, the potential is there but so far it's been a pretty uninteresting thread. Me? I want something a little more special.

    Saw that bike on history channel- on modern marvels, it was being called "the strongest bike in the world" or something like that. They had the frame in a press to show how strong the head tube is. Specialized R&D looks like a fun place to work

    I'd buy the most expensive roadbike I've seen and sell it. With $8000, I could buy every bike I could ever want. I'd start with a Banshee Rune, then get an On-One 456. Once I've covered off-road duties, I'd get an On-One Pompino for road duties and call it money well spent.

    The Spark is a bad ass bike. Two of my friends have them and they're pure seks.

    I'm boring:

    Turner 5 spot built up with full XTR drivetrain, DT Swiss hubs/Mavic UST rims, Formula brakes, and pushed Fox shocks and fork.
    Riding slowly since 1977.

    I'd say a Jones, but that's been said already--so probably one of these. (On-One/Lynskey Ti 456.).

    A ridiculously pimped SC Nomad so it weighs in under 28lbs but with all that nice travel. On that note, one of our top New Zealand female xc riders just won a round of the national xc series on a 28lb Nomad. she had a much lighter race bike, but felt like riding the Nomad. I want strong wheels, Pushed shocks, ceramic bearings on everything, and some new Hope brakes in a cool colour scheme. And I want someone to clean it up real nice for me every time I put it away dirty.
    That's not too much to ask, surely?

    Not to spam but mine will be for sale in a couple months. I just switched out the fork to the Magura Durin. So far so good.

    For free, i think i would just go with a Giant Anthem Advanced. Not super rare or cool - actually quite a common bike, but very appropriate for the riding i do.

    I'm with armyslowrider pretty much, already have my fleet of dream mountain bikes now, but I have been lusting after a Colnago steel bike with a cool paint job for a long time...

    Hmmm...Lemme see...

    A restored 60's era Schwinn Stingray with a banana seat and a springer fork. Should have bought one when they re-introduced them in 2001. Damnit!

    Stumpy FSR S-Works is where is it at.

    Pure love. I would rather it be green though.

    I'm with Alex, but I don't need quite as much travel as the V-Tach. A Delerium T would be ideal in my books. Build it up strong but light (say 35lb range) and then ride, ride, ride.

    I'm very happy with the bikes I've got, but I bumped into James riding this bike the other day and fell in love with it. If it were given to me, I could walk the three blocks to the builder and pick it up:

    Black Sheep stHighlight
    29er soft tail with a unique means of suspension: a 6/4 Ti blade with a tensioning system on the back end. It allows 4 inches of pivotless suspension, and gives a point of removal for the back end, so the bike fits in a non oversized travel case.

    Got to agree with the quoted statement, I'd go custom from one of the known builders, Erikson, Quiring, Back Sheep, Jones, depending on what exactly I wanted, HT/rigid, FS, Softtail.
    It would be Ti something, something built for me... why pick something someone manufactures and anyone could buy?

    OK yeah, that does look kind of tempting but seriously looks like the technology has spilled over into the rider and those damn hogs are too damn dangerous with how people drive on the roads these days.

    I like my Fuel and would replace it with a newer version if someone else were buying.

    Dangerous, anything is dangerous. Screaming down a single track at 40+mph and having a rabbit hop out in front of you is dangerous...lol

    I think the "I'd get the most expensive bike I can find to sell it to buy 2,3, or more bikes" is missing the point. If you could have any 1 bike for free what would it be?

    Wash your hand afterwards and don't lick your bike.

    There's lots of things you should wash your hands afterwards. Some even include licking...

    US made FS I suppose

    I have three mountain bikes including a custom built IF frame and a very nice carbon road bike so I'm just not sure what I would want. I guess one of the high end US made FS frames like an Intense, etc. with full XTR, a Mavic/CK wheelset, CK headset, Thomson post and stem, etc.

    I have to agree with the Apple green color. It has always been one of my favorites.

    Hmmm, I'd also like a full custom Ti road bike with top end Campy or Dura Ace components. Don't need it but you did say it was free.

    If somebody had given me this whole setup instead of me having to pay for most of it, I would prob have done the same bike except I would like to have the new R1i Rear suspension on the 08's. But since I really liked this frame and I am building it from the ground up. So here is my dream bike......

    Cranks - XT
    Shifters - Sram X.0
    FD - Shimano XT
    RD - Sram X.0
    Brakes - Avid Juciy Ultimate 185mm front 160mm rear
    Headset - Chris King (I have The Cane Creek S3 but will be upgrading to a King soon)
    Handlebars - FSA K-Force Carbon riser
    Stem - FSA OS-115 Carbon
    Fork - 07 Fox Talas (Only cause I liked the dark charcoal color)
    Wheelset - Mavic Crossmax SL (I am building it with Bontrager Race Lite's cuase they were free)
    Seatpost - Thompson Elite

    If it were free, I would get this:

    sell it and buy 20 other bikes.

    Honestly, I want the Trek Mod. They stopped making it for this year...
