    Mine, simple really...

    Carrera Titan Carbon. In April i will buy it too.

    Anything else is an unrealistic dream therefore not on my radar.

    I can't grasp how you guys spend £2000-5000 or whatever on a bike... it baffles me.

    unreallistic dream, exactly, what is it! not what you will buy, but what you would have if there was no such thing as money, what you would have if you could have anything, for free.

  • I wouldn't have specced it up like that!

    Probably a genius or a whyte for me actually proabbly an ibis mojo/mojo sl in nuclear orange, carbon trail bike suits me down to the ground.

    hope/cx-ray/stans wheels (white rims)
    CK headset and BB
    XTR cranks
    Middleburn rings (ceramic)
    one point stem
    tune seatpost
    fizik gobi
    xtr shifters/mech
    tech V2 brakes
    Monkeylite DH bars
    lockon grips
    PUSH'd suspension
    kmc chain
    mg-1 or superstar nano pedals
    blue anodising all round, chainring bolts, jockey wheels, pedal kit, piston caps, carbon levers

    Basically rather pimped and tarted up with blue parts on an orange frame.

    But tbh, i'm really lucky with the stable i've got at the moment.

    oooh, that is quite nice, maybe me spec needs a bit of pimping....
    ano red everything, jockey wheels, pedal pins, grip end caps.......... ti bolts.... red ano vever blades, brake piston caps...... custom ano'd fork stansions. and drop the thompson post sub with KS racing pro i900. keep the thompson 4x elite stem tho... run the tyres tubless. and have an xtr rear mech.
    OK, more bling added, my bike is now perfect.... if only it were real!

    My bike with
    magura 100 sl durins
    fulcrum red metal zero rims

    I have pretty much everything else i could want.
    The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

  • some kind of Ibis carbon with full XTR yuema drive chain and Fox 36s would be nice, but for now I'm happy with my Orange Five SE
