I sold an exact example of the above bike (bar the white bros ti BB) about ten years ago. Very regrettable!

I still have fond memories of sharing some dips and chips with Ross schafer at Cyclex.

Oh yeah.... i told Keith bontrager his forks flexed too much under braking and they could do with an uprated crown!

I did some thinking on the issue. Many of the above options and some more really appealed to me. For myself I decided it has to be a Nagasawa MTB with 2006 Campy RecordOR. Doesn't excist, but it would be be cool if it did.

If there was no competition or profits then design and engeneering would not advance threrfore my vote for a bike would be this.
