A really difficult question to answer! I think it would be too hard to seperate my mountain bikes as they are so different, and a simple tyre change can alter the performance dramatically. I love the feel of a titanium frame with good front suspension and i've had use of a few combinations of this recipe. Strangely, my best ever bike is actually a road bike that was stolen, and i've been grieving ever since '92. She was a Bianchi with columbus SLX tubing and a full Campagnolo chorus groupset. Gorgeous.
