    Custom Black Sheep Stellar frame, Faith fork, Mountain Mustache bars, Control stem, and Standard post.

    The rest is the usual smattering of strong, light, and durable parts (King, Enve, etc)

    If money were no object I'd force Chiru Bikes to make a Laktik SL SS specific 26" frame for me. Then bling that ***** out.

    Not so much the money, but this is the best looking bike I've ever seen

    However, if it was mine I'd like it in a deep blue/cream color combo.

    This is exactly what I came in here to post - been thinking my next frame would probably have to be custom, and I kind of flip between waltworks and engin. I regularly have dreams about those lugs, and the fact that they're in Philly so I would be able to go to their shop and get a proper fitting, etc... makes it *almost* seem worth the extra cost. I flip between these two on a daily basis. Probably will for the next few years.

    Until then, my Karate Monkey will have to make my dreams come true.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    I've always been a huge fan of the Niner's looks. Shop claims it's a hair under 18 lbs.

    If money were no object it'd stay pretty much the same, maybe a black newer xt crankset and some newer magura mt-8's.

    There's a lot of very nice variations on a theme out there. But only a Ti Jones can be the 'ultimate ss' in my mind, it's just an awesome ride- particularly as a SS.

    There are so many dream builds... Ron's IF Ti Deluxe in team colors is pretty sick.

    A Ti ByStickel would be sick as my "AM" SS rig (replacing my N9). I'd also like a dedicated rigid, probably an Engin with some Jones-y geo but with sliders. And a Ti SSCX with hydro discs...you said dream right?

    My money would go to Engin for the frame, fork, post and stem. DT Swiss hubs laced to some fancy hoops. XTR for the functional bits.
