    Better not tell you where I live, thats pretty much my current bike bar the Enve rims (its on Stans and a whole lot cheaper!). Its a lovely bit of kit, sell your kidney or do 0% finance with Ubyk and you’ll be over the moon ๐Ÿ˜€

    Road, something similar to this (maybe with modern gears);

    Definitely something from Firefly, like this…..

    Actually, money no object Id start a bike company, build 4 bar bikes with a patented FFS (Functionaly the F****** Same) suspension design and let Spesh have their day in court.

    Horst-link patent has expired, you will be wasting your time ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cipollini Logos in Yellow Fluo for those very special days and a Soulcraft Holy Roller for fun.

    Road for me, am awaiting delivery of this frame

    Full Dura Ace DI2 9070, with C35 wheels shod with GP4000s 25mm tyres.

    Still to choose bars/stem/post etc but the only carry over parts from my old bike are seat and pedals.

    Very happy about it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Edit, frame is not disc version, prefer the look of traditional brakes.

    Premier Icon takisawa2

    I’d get the Surly hubs on my Niner anodised red. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And I’d buy one of them Engin’s, mounted on a revolving plinth, to replace the TV in my lounge.


    Intense Carbine 29er with a bit of extra bling!

    Really really want! solely based on looks but bound to be mega to ride.

    Premier Icon edhornby

    air9carbon with rigid fork, 1×11 and bling wheels

    all weather ti road bike with discs


    Ask me again when the Yeti SB75C frame comes out.


    if money is no problem, I’d have an unlimited airline ticket.


    Gooner,have a look at the deda superleggero/a stem bar combo these go well ,seat post is also available. However colnagos post is a good looker too.

    I genuinly don’t know as the bike I am building is pretty much all I want (sub ยฃ2k build) anything more would be wasted on me.

    But would probably add a mid travel full sus like a rocket or a DMR Bolt

    Plus a full on DH bike to the stable/quiver/armory/other nonsensical words for bikes

    Ask me again when the Yeti SB75C frame comes out.

    Will certainly be interesting when the C comes out, see if it makes it “come alive”. Certainly the reviews of the SB75 so far say its not the best middle ground between a SB66 and SB95, comments suggest you should go one way or the other, and not try and sit in the middle.

    I was torn with the SB66c, with the SB75 being imminent when I got it, but so happy I went with the SB66c, it fits perfectly with what I want it to do. The bike industry can **** off trying to take 26s away from us ๐Ÿ™ (or rather those muppets who keep asking for 650B without having tried one so bike companies rush out to make them). Sure Yeti will have a SB76c ready and dailled for when my SB66c is ready for retirement though hah…


    Engin for me
    A nice 953 ht 26″
    Rs8 uno
    Royce bb
    King headset
    Tune hubs
    Stans Podium mmx rims
    And some sort or xtr electric rear gear ( hidden battery )

    Bit unsure as to have a Sid or rigid fork

    And maybe a specialized sworks enduro in blue as a big bike

    Oh well best start saving

    Premier Icon dannybgoode

    I already have my dream road bike – Custom 853 frame and reasonably modest SRAM Rival, home built wheels on Royce hubs, Brooks Swallow etc. Just a lovely bike.

    MTB-wise Cotic Rocket with XTR and some form of Fox bounciness.

    I’d probably be quite boring and just get a top spec Giant TCR road bike to replace my not quite top spec TCR. And a top spec TCX to go with it.

    Off road I’d probably just get a Solaris with some nice carbon wheels and 1×10 XT on it. All a bit boring and very attainable really.

    Either that or I’d get sata cruz to build me a one off custom 650b Chameleon in carbon ๐Ÿ™‚


    Orange boy- sadly Engin is no longer doing steel so you really would have to throw some cash at him to get one ๐Ÿ™‚ best start saving for one of his ti frames


    The bike wouldn’t be that expensive, but paying for Greg Fuquay to come out of bike building retirement and shipping him and his family over to the UK so he could build the titanium hardtail we discussed twenty years ago would probably up the budget. ๐Ÿ™‚


    Vertigo ti ht xtr/enve
    Parlee Z1 lightweight/dura ace


    Whyte T129carbon
    Beargrease Fatbike


    Money no object I would test as many enduro/all mountain bikes as I could then based on that I would commission a bike designer and McLaren to build me a carbon frame.

    I would then buy my way into the RS black box program for suspension.

    Try all the tyres I can then commission a tyre manufacturer to make my own tyres for different conditions.

    Not sure what I would do about wheels.

    Transmission would be a Shimano XTR 11-42 with raceface next sl cranks and some custom CNC parts.

    I would get that carbon KES dropper post to.


    The base price for that ti frame high but that’s before the options
    Might be a long time saving up


    Chrisl does that ride as good as it looks and sounds?

    I will have too check out ubyk..
