what is your dream bike that you would keep forever??
As title really.
I’ve got itchy feet with the 5 spot and as I’ve just had an operation on my wrist I’m not able to ride currently so trying to sell it on.
My next Bike is going to be the Bike I keep! However I’m really not sure what that would be? Does that make sense?
What would be your dream bike that you would keep?
It doesn’t have to cost the earth either.
Current idea is a kinesis sync.

I think I already have that bike, it’s a Yeti Asr7 built with the best parts I could afford and it rides so well. My only complaint is that it smooths out the trails so much that around my way, MK, there isn’t much I can’t manage even with my skill!!! Still shouldn’t complain really…..Posted 3 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
I think I’ve got it with out realising. In 2006 I got a turner 6-pack. I’ve never had a bike that long before and did start looking around for a replacement last year but found nothing I’d rather be riding. Instead, I have front and rear shocks upgraded by Craig at avalanche.Posted 3 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
1994 Stumpjumper in Green
1995 Kona Explosif Pro in that metallic black with XC Pro
Pace RC200 (I did actually buy a minter, and genuinely thought I would keep that forever, but was forced to sell it to fund house purchase. I should be gutted, but it went to such a good home, I’m not.)
Oh, and any IBIS, because they are just lovely to look at.Posted 3 years agoracefaceec90Member
for some reason i really would like one of those (and would keep it too).
have never ridden one,but from all the rave reviews it has had from people who do like them,it’s meant to be awesome.i do love the look of it too 😀 no chance of affording one though at present 🙁Posted 3 years agomanton69Subscriber
I brought this back in 1992 as it was a team bike cast off. Still looks and ride amazingly. I still love the Paris Roubaix rims that it came with. The strongest wheels I have ever owned. If it is nce tomorrow I think it may get a spin out. (this is not mine, but the closest image that I could post)

I have my dream bike. A cannondale scalpel 2012.
It’s a custom build so a lot of time went into building it and selecting the parts.
Would I keep it forever? Probably not. I build bike’s, enjoy them then move on.
I currently have seven bikes and none are safe when it comes to the PX list.Posted 3 years agojamesoSubscriber
I have a real-life keeper that I can see me riding at 60+ with a different spec on it. It’s already done me proud over a number of big rides and makes me grin on local trails that I know almost too well.
Doesn’t matter what it is, but there are bikes like that out there. They tend to be non-suspended, steel, capable of a wide range of use and unfashionable : ) If I had a road-biased version of it I could look forward to being a mainly 2-bike garage with some space at last.Posted 3 years agolawman91Member
Think mine will be a Santa Cruz Solo. I love my Mojo HD140, it’s a brilliant bike to ride, but it’s a little small and sometimes its a pain to live with, nothing major just a few little niggles that my perfect bike wouldn’t have. Having ridden the Solo recently I can’t think of anything wrong with it, later in the year I will have one!Posted 3 years agomaximusmountainMember
My current surly karate monkey (built as a dingle speed cross bike atm), enough fork to go for 100mm of travel if needed, lots of rack mounts, mounts everything on it possible (including things I’m not sure I will ever have or need) and its custom decorated (shameless blog plug) and as it was the misses who decorated it I am never going to get rid of it, its too perfect for me.

Ive tended to think that mine would be a custom Seven Sola, probably steel something like Tange Prestige, but I would take their advice really. Although, a Sola Ti would be very nice too. 120mm forks and I’m currently pondering whether to have swappable drop outs…Posted 3 years ago
