If you could have any bike what would it be

Random question. You get to add one new bike to your stable--
any kind of bike. You get to keep all of your old bikes. The new
bike costs you zero and you get to pick whatever you want but it
must be a bicycle--two wheels only. No trikes, no solid gold bikes
"cuz then I would . . ." etc. An actual bike--

Off the top of my head I think it would be a Hetchins road bike. Or maybe
a Colnago road bike--80s vintage.



back to working on this document. I will be checking for responses in an hour or so.

With redline tires

1984 Honda V65 Sabre, but that is a different kind of bike, and I alreaady have one, just not running right now

A Bottlerocket, or some sort of five-inch fully. Maybe a cross bike.

Nicolai Nucleon TFR......oh, wait, I have one already



edit: I suppose if it was an extra addition at no cost it would be a Toxy ZR Rohloff recumbent - the nucleon scratched the new bike itch very well though so I'm not really looking now

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

I'm not too particular, as long as it's at least similar to this:

At this point, I'm thinking a Fuji America touring/randonneuring bike with all the braze ons for bottle cages, racks, fenders, etc. Fitted out with the fenders, racks, lights (nice led ones powered by a state of the art dyno hub). It would have to come with Nitto RNDONNR bars with Shimano 9 speed bar end shifters, a honey colored Brooks Professional saddle (with the mongo rivets), Dura Ace components, and a Dr. Deltron paint-job.

<edit> a Rene Herse would be acceptable too.

I bet I could get Ralph Nader to start a new crusade against recumbents.

Not that I would though. Some of my best friends ride bents..

I edit my original post. A real porteur bike with 650b wheels would be
nice--and a fork that could take the CETMA rack I've got.
