That new £7k Scott Genius Carbon
Merlin Ti Road Bike

DeKerf Ti Implant
Kone Hei Hei – mid 90’s so one of the proper ti ones.
Santa Cruz Nomad
Big Plasma TV, blue ray player and surround sound and some nice units and flooring to fulfill my workshop dreams.
That’s probably about it but there may be more.Posted 9 years agomolgripsSubscriber
On the subject of workshops tho – I’d have a huge workshop and storage, and I’d employ a bike-stablehand to clean and maintain the fleet. I’d just call down and say “Watson, I think I’ll take the Patriot out today, make sure it’s ready. I think the brakes were a little off last time I rode it, would you be so good as to bleed them and fit new pads? Also I’ll have the Mountain King 2.4s too.”Posted 9 years agojonjones13Member
Parlee or Crumpton SL carbon roadie (Campy Super Record and Lightweight Ventoux’s of course)
Vanilla or Speedvagen steel roadie (depending on how long I want to wait!)
Steve Potts Ti 29er with Black Sheep Ti forks
Nicolai Helius CC or Ventana El Salty for FS duties
See you only need 4 !Posted 8 years ago
@mboy- “Custom (built by me on a Dave Yates frame building course probably, if I could get a place!) 853 hardnut hardtail,” that’s what i ride! finished in metalflake black with vanilla32s saint cranks, hope brakes and hubs, en521s, xtr, thomson, all in black!! and if you can get a place go on the course! I wanna go again, even if you don’t get much change from a grand!Posted 8 years agoGaryLakeMember
Orange Five – Bling out my current five – bread and butter bike, I know it works. Fancy a tracer but meh…Posted 8 years ago
Lynsky M230 – Fancy a bit of Ti…
Cotic Single – Got to have a bit of niche content in there.
Orange Blood – dunno, just looks like it’d be real fun to ride the tits off it!
Orange 224 – if had the omey I’d be gving DHing a go and I’d probably lack the imagination to go beyond the old halifax faithful.JonEdwardsMember
I’d keep my Soda – possibly do a bit of a respec.
Jones 3D spaceframe SS thingy
Turner DW 5-spot
Turner DW DHR
Ti Beefy hardtail with Lyrics/Fox 36s on (Cotic Bfe or Dialled Apline kinda thing, but in Ti). Or maybe one of those Commencal Atherton Ti 4x bikes.
Litespeed Archon with full SuperRecord and Ligtweights
Condor Percorso Ti fixie
A nice 953 audax/winter road bike with mudguards on for when it’s reet shitty out.
Hmmm. I do like my Ti, me…Posted 8 years agoatlazMember
Not too sure. Bling up the current stable a little, add in some sort of park use thing (Commencal Furious perhaps), a road bike and that’d do me. I’d need a new house to get them all in tho as I can’t see Mrs Atlaz going for me filling up with any more bikes.
Assuming I was a man of leisure after that, the big expense would be trips to places to ride. That truck would seem to fit the bill for European stuff.Posted 8 years ago

PICTURES, I NEED TO SEE PICTURES! 😛
Mamadirt, why the 6.6 over the Slopestyle? Would’ve thought the Slopestyle more your thing, certainly it’s DEFINITELY very “my thing”… In fact, once I’ve sorted my finances out when my new job starts, and I’m significantly out of my overdraft, may have to look into buying an SS!Posted 8 years agokiwijohnSubscriber
IF Tungsten ElectrodePosted 8 years ago
Merlin/Seven/Moots custom Ti HT modeled on my DMR Switchback with 140mm forks
Turner DW RFX
Colnago roadie. Lugged steel. Or maybe a Bob Jackson.
Steelman CX bike
GT Dynoglide Deluxe or 3. Got one already.
BMX of some description.
A museum full of retro classicsRexMember
@knottie – brilliant idea!
I’ll have a seven sola singlespeed please. and a parlee roadbike.
i’d get dave turner to make me a custom dw link tandem.
and thinking about it, to go with the lightweight sola ss i’d ask lynskey to make me a ti 456 singlespeed for big forks.
oh, and a nice steel cross bike.Posted 8 years ago
That’s impressive mate, I really like that. Can I ask what the geometry is though, the head angle does look a tad steeper than I’d probably run myself, though of course it may just be perspective from the photos.
VERY well finished though BTW, and I like the colour a lot.Posted 8 years agoPeterPoddyMember
3 italians, 4 Brits, but sod pedalling them for a lark! –
Ducait Desmosedici RR
A 916SPS for good measure
And I’d keep my little Monster 696 for general tooling around on.
And now the Brits –
Vincent Black Shadow
BSA Gold Star
And my little Monster 696. It’s wonderful.Posted 8 years ago
Hey mboy….Posted 8 years ago
The head angle is a touch steep bout 71.. i was intending to run slightly longer forks than i am doing which has affected both head angle and bb height, it still rides well though but i’d go about 2 degrees slacker next time, there’s always something though when you build your first, which brings me back to wanting to do another….james-oMember
Firstly a full Park workshop set-up, a nice Bose sound system and a minibar. Then a few custom ti bikes by Moots or IF, a 953 Brian Rourke and probably a few more from builders who show those gorgeous frames the handbuilt show. A Jones and a Sachs road frame would arrive a year or so later :), then one of 18’s frames when they get going.. OTP bikes would prob be a Five, or maybe an ST4, a Supreme for chairlift holidays and a little Chameleon for summer evenings. Just because they would all be / do what i wanted and all be totally different, a bike for every kind of ride and all the spares to chop and change as required.
then i’d buy a jig, mitre cutters and brazing gear and start experimenting.. the best daydream post ever, cheers )
oh and a basic 531 frame converted to SS for a spares project.
Those are some lovely motorbikes above too…but that’s a very slippery slope )Posted 8 years ago
PP, nice choices. Know someone with a Desmosedici already though, have had a sit on it… VERY nice.
My old housemate used to have a 916SP3 with quite a few Ducati Corse mods on it, including an ex BSB engine.
Have a 96 748SP in the shed myself, needs a bit of TLC as it hasn’t been on the road in a couple of years due to financial reasons, but hoping it’ll be back up and running soon. Not THAT much slower than a 916SP either, only about 15bhp in it.
sam42. That’s exactly what I was thinking mate. I’m no expert on geometry, but would be thinking something like 68.5-69 degrees with a 140mm fork on my build if I did it, or 67-67.5 with something like a Lyric or a Fox 36. Hmmmmm… Oh to have some money to go on the course!Posted 8 years agomamadirtMember

Well it’s has taken me an age to whittle my collection down to just the one – it’ll have to take me to work and be capable of x/c and d/h (like my Tazer). I’ve had ridden both albeit briefly (mate has a Slopestyle – love it!) and if it was a question of having more than one then yes, definitely, but I’m quite enjoying never being on the wrong bike at the mo’ so I reckon the 6.6 with DHX air shock would fit the bill as an only bike pretty well. The way Intense are bringing out new models at the mo’ I reckon it’s gotta be only a matter of time before 6.6 frame prices drop (I’ve been watching the S/S prices though and they just seem to get more expensive every time I look).Posted 8 years agolyonsMember

A scott scale, with full xtr, pacelt edition race forks etc .
