    My bike! I saved and sold a couple of other toys (guns) to get it, but it's worth it. It's my 3rd SC and I'm sticking with them. XT, Z1 QR 20, Sun-Ringle', Easton. Have fun.

    Cove's have ended up being nice bikes. Stout too. It's hard to kill them. I feel disloyal giving another bike props, but heh, the Heckler will forgive me (I hope!). Ride on.

    K. Thanks hoho. I just wish my skills would do the bike justice.

    Hmm it does look a little like that, doesn't it :) I think he's putting his index finger in the air or something.

    I really should change it a bit as I use the same one on (most) all the forums ;)

    Same here - pretty hard to improve on my Trek Y-Foil w/Chorus group. Maybe Campy Bora or Zipp 909/404 wheels... Synapsi handlebars... A couple of plane tickets so I could tour the Alps for the terrific hillclimbs, and then tour Holland for the terrific coffee and beer.

    If cost was not an issue, why couldn't you have them all? ;)

    Do you have a once off unlimited supply or do you have it forever? Because you'll have to replace parts sometime and insurance is also a must.

    My choice would be a Carrera Pitbull with Chorus group and FIR Galaxium wheels. Not to over the top but still affordable.
