What is your dream bike?

I just got myself a new bike; after a hard and practical assessment of my skills, fitness level, budget and ambitions, I got myself a Trek Navigator 100. I'm happy with it, but I still think sort of wistfully of the articles that I read in cycling magazines, about the Tour de France, or hard core mountainbiking or some of the custom bike builders. As I get fit I can upgrade, I know, though I don't know where my ambitions will lead me.

But what is your dream bike? In a perfect world, what would you have?

One thing that made me think of it was a Bianchi on ebay - a minimalist bike - but very lovely, I thought.

She's a dedicated time trial bike, and she looks, rides and sounds (the sound of the wheelset is incredible) wonderful.

I don't know... maybe a Colnago from the 70s. I could also go for an early model Schwinn.

I'll own my dream bike after I win the lottery -- a Litespeed Vortex.



Until then, I'm riding a close second to it -- my Litespeed Tuscany.

I'm loving my Tuscany too, Ron. I've had it a week now so it's still a honeymoon. The mix of comfort and stiffness is as close to perfect as I may ever experience. The Tuscany will be my dream bike after I add a few bits here and there.

Hmm, dream bike would have to be a mid-'80s Trek 770 crit bike. Steep 74/75 degree angles and a 37.5" wheelbase! The thing steers telepathically!
