Easy! (ish)

Steel - Don Myrah's Ritchey P-23 from the 1990 - This one http://www.oldmountainbikes.com/catalogs/ritchey/articles/win_90/index.html

Aluminium - GT Zaskar - everybody wanted one - I had an original with full and U-Brake on the Seatstay

Ti - Bontrager Titanium - have a customer with one (with childseat - how cool!)

Carbon - Trek 9900 OCLV - one of the twin colour ones (Yellow one side / eggplant (purple) the other) OR Team version (with with blue graphics one side - reversed other)

Mixed - Fisher CR7 i wanted one!

That particular P-23 is in my sad eyes the most beautiful bike ever made!

Steel - I am going to have to agree P23 always wanted one still do!!!

Alu - Pace RC100 Got it

Ti - Mongoose tomac replica (complete with steel back end hope it still counts)

Carbon/non-metallic - Endorphin just look ace.

But most off all I want this a Ritchey tandem, the ultimate steel machine!!
