Hey Foosters, have a dream bike? Post it here andddddd here's mine

darn it, has been searching for a bike (for fun) that would categorize it self as a All-Mountain, I only end up with Epiphany, well went to competitive cyclist and I end up making the bike around RM15k.

So I went searching again, and sadly I ended up at Trek's Fuel EX line and im stucked there. I got addicted to the FUEL EX line. Oh my gawsh, Im totally addicted to the Fuel EX 8, check this out http://www.treknology3.com/2007/trek...n/pages/f8.htm

I believe they are clearing the past XTR models and decided to package it with the Fuel EX8, what you need to do is just change the shifters to the new XTR and you get ur self, one hella of a bike , and its weight is around 12kg. Not bad for a Marathon XC bike. (Actually after thinking and decided my self, I decided that I want to ride longer and further instead of faster, which means I am supposed to look for a comfortable XC all terrain bike instead of a XC race bike and its weight should be around 11-12kg) The irony.....

Oh well, when I work, maybe I get that instead of Epiphany damn 07 Trek rocks

I'm pretty happy with Vivian. She's my Cervelo R3 with silver destickered Rolf Prima Elan Aero wheels, DuraAce, Zero Gravity brakes, and Deda white bar tape. Cost no object, though, I wouldn't mind a Cervelo Soloist Carbon SL with Lightweight Obermayer wheels, undecided as to DuraAce, Record, or Force. Zero Gravity brakes and Deda or Cervelo branded white bar tape.

It's on the non disc side... (hot hot hot!) This is an all mountain bike, a little more tougher than my Caldera and Cake, which are XC.

The Session 10 has 10 inches of rear wheel travel, while the Session 7 and 77 have about 7 inches. I don't like how the 10 looks, but I really like the 77. Unfortunately, I'm sure it'll be several years till I have enough money to get a new bike.

I'm pretty happy with mine! It's not the most expensive bike on the block, but Lugged Columbus steel frame:

My dream bike would be something classic that I personally restored/built up. Preferably 80s Italian.

Along the lines of this:


or this:

or this:


or of course this:


This would also work:

or even this:


Yes, any of the above would work quite nicely

Perhaps he meant reverse it so it so it folds backwards... preventing any sticks or anything catching the lever and opening it while you're riding along?

I have a nice 84 Ciocc like one of those you posted. They're absolutely awesome bikes.

I want a nice aluminum/carbon Colnago. We have one at the shop [not my size], but I can't afford that for a while. I like my Fuji otherwise.
