I'd love to have a newer road bike. My 1978 Raleigh Grand Prix 10speed is cool, however, I think a newer ride would be nice.

Too many to wish for, as soon as I had one I would want the other or another! But I like the simplicity and reliability of my 84 Trek with Suntour Superbe friction system.

I rode the madone 5.9 and it is stiff! ugh. Oh well, it's really light.

The Giant carbons I like but my ultimate must be the Litespeed Vortex.

I like my Klein and my Fuji touring bikes.. Sort of wish I had a titatinum bike- guess Litespeed and maybe a Bruce Gordon touring bike...
Instead of crossing a continent, maybe might dream of circumventing the whole planet...Have met two people who have..They lived to tell their tale..(That is, if I had a touring bike of the quality of a Bruce Gordon...have to justify it somehow..)
Just thinking of crossing the world...Would it be fair to fly to Australia. Cross Australia....Then fly to India and from there ride to Paris.Then back to New York and cross North America....(Not cheating, if we fly over war zones? )Yeah, think that is the route I would choose.

I'd really like a custom Rivendell Touring bike since we are talking wishes here. But I probably will get a Rivendell Atlantis next year.

I'd absolutely love a Trek 5200 with some upgraded components. I'm sure the Madone and 5900 are awsome bikes, but the added cost would probably make me too paranoid about damage.
