Long time ago I helped someone (a lot, according to him) and this dude suddenly materialized and wants to give me a present. He knows of my addiction and he's going to buy me a "bike of my dream" for my birthday. I have been looking for a cross bike that could handle some of the road duty, something along the lines of the bike used for Paris-Roubaix. Something that I could ride in the winter and fall on cross tires and fatter road tires during the sping/summer.
So, if YOU had to select a bike of your dreams, what would you pick? If I had to guess, the guy is willing to spend anywhere from 3 to 5 k USD.
P.S. My birthday is July 17th, so I don't have much time.
