    What would be your ultimate Mountain Bike?

    For me it would have to be either a Merlin Extralight with Pace Forks, XTR kit and Spin Wheels, or a Trek Team Issue 9900, with loads of Titanium goodness.

    How's about you?

    My ultimate MTB

    It would be one that you would not have to do any maintenance to. One that would hold up through anything. One that the manufacturer would warranty everything on it for life against anything. It would cost around $25. You could get them anywhere. You would never have to patch the tubes on a ride. That is my idea but it will never see the light.

    Eh??

    Steve, what do you mean....???

    Surely a XTR Titanium bike is better than a No name parts Cro Mo one.

    Price aside, as a friend of mine once said who ran a bike shop. Any bike you ride is better than one you do not, as long as it didnot come from K- Mart. I think he was a little predujice on that one HA HA HA.!!!!!!!!

    Ultimate Bike

    The ultimate bike is the one you are riding, instead of sitting at your computer in the office for 8-10 hours a day, 5 days a week, then having to mow the lawn and do other chores on your day off leaving you only 2 hours to get a 3 hour ride in.

    XC bike - GT Zaskar Team
    Downhill - GT DHi
    Trials - GT team trials (this bike is sooo easy to handle)
    Single Speed - Old Schwinn
    Dual Suspension Freeride: Norco VPS-1 or 2
    Freeride hardtail - GT Ruckus

    I think there is a pattern developing involving GT what do you think? I guess I'm just a little biased.

    I saw Mael post about the Nicolai on a different thread so I went to the site to check it out. I couldn't find any links explaining the technology behind it. Do you have any?

    I think the ultinate bike would be one that is super light, long travel (at least 7 inches), strong,and pedals like a cross country bike. But that will never happen.

    In following him, all the above plus it can take 6-10' drops, perform like crazy downhill, freeride like no other bike and then you can go and win an XC race on it.
