I'm with others that there are way too many to list. However, right now becuase of my travel schedule, I have my heart set on an air-transportable bike. I've been trying to save up for a Co-Motion Espresso with the Co-Pilot breakdown option.

I am fortunate to be able to afford (and have bought) exactly the bikes I want:

Litespeed Tuscany ('02)
Specialized S-Works Epic ('04)

So, I guess the answer to the question is... there isn't one.

The 1973 Peugeot PX10e I bought during college for like $400

It was stolen in the 1990's in Seattle.

One of life's great tragedies. Some of you will know what i am talking about.

Colnago C50 (NL4), built up with Campy Record. Or a Pinarello Prince, or (since we're dreaming) Pinarello Dogma.

Well... for a road bike i'm still deciding on which road bike to buy, but for a mountain bike i'd like a Hardrock Sport. I wouldn't want something too expensive for playing in the park.

I was just saying to my GF last night that if I had some money over for a really nice bike, I would go for a De-Rosa. There's just something about their styling that speaks to me. This one is beautiful for instance:


(Shame about their homepage though - sized too large for the browser and really difficult to send someone a link to a particular product. Especially as right-clicking is disabled, makes it hard to send someone a link to a particular sub-page).

Ok, If I have to I'd like an Ottrott, if not that
a Richard Sachs, or Dave Kirk.
or late 60s Pogliaghi or Cinelli.

Our Double Vision recumbent tandem with front suspension and underseat steering is the ultimate cycling machine. I wish for nothing else!!

In no real order:
IF Crown Jewel (maybe this spring)
Jamis Dakar XLT 3.0 I may just go for a XLT 2.0 frame and build that up, since I have some of the parts that are on the XLT 3.0
and a Flying Pegion [https://momovelo.com/pigeon/DSC01202.jpg]

Maybe a Vanilla (https://vanillabicycles.com)track frame, but Honestly if I got those three bikes, I think I would have everything I want. It also helps that the two bikes I lust after, I also sell so hello shop cost!

A Giant NRS Air (with a carbon fiber frame)...



Or a Trek Madone 5.9 (I don't care how it performs...it looks awesome!)...

That Kirk KCS is gorgeous!

I think I've narrowed it down to 3 possibilities:
Turner Burner
Turner 5-spot
Intense Tracer

Alas, I can barely count to numbers on the price tags. Maybe after I graduate.

A Rene Herse probably would be first choice.

But I'd settle for a Masi Gran Crit.
