    If I had infinite money, I'd buy a decently priced bike, and spend the rest of my money on awareness campaigns, lobbying, etc. Make the world a better place for everyone.
    Nah, j/k, i'd buy this bad boy right here. [​IMG]
    Always wanted to ride a work of art.

    The bikes featured above are enticing. I just liked the grey bike and feel like zooming away at once. The wheels seem to have petal disc brakes. What is its price swampy1970?

    I'd probably build a Pinarello Dogma with SRAM Red. 56 cm. 175 cranks. The geometry suits me. I relate to Fausto's philosophy on bike design.

    Flame away regarding my choice of SRAM. I don't care. It suits me.

    Heh, I don't care. Some point down the line I would regret this, but biking is so fun. I don't need a great performance bike for road and trail biking with friends. All I need is any high quality bike. What about you OP? What is your dream bike?

    Custom built. Make it EXACTLY like you want it for whatever discipline you choose. Can't get any better than that.

    I'd honestly get a stable of 5+ bikes priced $500 - $1,000 or so each instead of shelling out ridiculous money for one bike. Each one would have a specific riding purpose, whether it be speed, fitness, off road, etc.

    There's too many to make a decision like that, I would probably want something that's one of a kind custom built lugged steel bike like something from Vanilla or Anderson, but not sure if those would be any better than my Mercian. Or because I like my Lynskey so much I think I would be more inclined to have him build me a custom made bike because I really don't think a more expensive custom made steel bike will ride like a titanium bike although a lugged steel bike does look far nicer. So after typing all this the decision would be more toward a custom made Lynskey ti bike.

    A custom painted Pinarello Dogma F8 with Campagnolo Super Record EPS and Lightweight Meilenstein Obermayer wheels. Can't get better than that!

    Probably something in titanium, maybe a Hampsten or Independent, with a full Super Record group---hell, I'd probably go EPS, even.

    And being Campy, I wouldn't sound pretentious calling it a gruppo. :cool:
