Money no object, whats your dream build?
Probably about 5-10 bikes until I found a couple that had gave the ‘tinkle-pee-pee’ or ‘fizz’ sensation you hear about but can’t quite explain.
I would like to think it’d be something like a raw Nicolai with slightly custom geometry. But in reality would be an Orange five that has the latest and greatest spec refreshed every 6 months 😀Posted 4 years agooliverracingSubscriber

Your pricing up is pretty accurate (that part still hurts a bit).thisisnotaspoonMember
Money no object?
I’d buy a boat. Ovington Phantom, CST mast, harken hardware, North 3DL sails (better buy a few, money’s no object so I’ll be moving somewhere sunny and they don’t like UV). And spend thePosted 4 years ago

Cross: Ritchey Swisscross
Road: Something steel and Italian
XC: Think I’ve already got it. Ritchey P-650b.
Fun 1: Cotic Rocket
Fun 2: Custom steel long travel hardtail.
Of course everything would have the latest and greatest (Campag, XX1 etc.) Yes, I have a bit of a thing for steel as well.Posted 4 years agoflatpatMember
I would buy an off the peg Giant in the sales and spend the rest on hiring a team of sightly female mechanics* to wash and maintain it after every ride.
Surely more practical and pleasurable than any amount of 1×10, wheelsize tennis, bling and small-US-niche-name-dropping can give you?

More or less what Kudos said- sworks enduro 29er, with Pikes, enves, formula brakes, xx1 drivetrain… And that’s all really. Bit plebby but doesn’t forget the job it’s for. Or alternatively, nip down to Orange with a bag of money and buy that Strange 29er Alpine they’ve been taking to shows.
For proper no-object I guess I’ll be going off to some carbon master builders and getting them to custom build me something based on my Hemlock, only slacker and a dab longer, then throwing glitz at it.Posted 4 years ago
