After looking at all the HOT sexy mtb's in the web site. I've now nearly got my fantasy bike shed. First i must say sorry to the owners of the other makes. I bet most wouldn't choose my fav stead to own. Each to their own.
My rules for this are that it must be only bike from each material

So my ti bike would be Merlin ultra light. Wu's bike's welds are just perfect.
Carbon bike has to be Trimble. What i'd like to know has any body bought a new one?? I think not. A case of great bike shame about the company.
Alu has to be Klein. Strong, light and wonderful paint work. Shame about Trek ownership.
Alas i only rode one steel bike. An Orange.
So i can't choose my ultmate steel as i've not had much contact with them.
May be a 'Fat Chance'
What's other peoples Fantasy bike shed?
This is just a bit of fun. I didn't choose suspension as i don't like it. :lol:

For me it would be

Titanium: Merlin XLM
Steel: Yeti FRO*
Alu: Pace RC200

*Ok, if I'm really honest it would be an Ultimate but I've ridden FROs for 12 years now. Maybe I'll find an Ultimate in the right size one day.

Well...
Ti: Moots Ybb or Merlin suspension
Alu: Cunningham (well, is it a fantasy shed or not?), with drop bars
Carbon: it's good for fishing rods
Steel: my Sling Shot, even if I'll probably change my mind after having ridden it, going back to my origianl steel wet dream: a turquoise PROFRO (gotta be turquoise and pro, not the older patco fro)
