A yeti arc and a rocky mountain element or etsx (last model with rear aluminium), I love RM geometry :)

But they don't make ARCs anymore...
I was thinking about this when GT refused to sell me a 26in new Xizang. Looked at Seven and IF, but i think a Dean Colonel X-lite 26er would fit the bill.

That "Rohloff powered FAT bike" would do for me, actually. But I wouldn't be able to use it as it so obviously deserves!

I think if someone pointed a gun to my head and said you must decide NOW I would probably go for a Ti Implant. If I had a chance to think about it I may choose otherwise but I certainly wouldn't be having one of the modern hydroformed bouncy bikes that all look the same.

I quite like the Genesis steel hardtails, they remind of how MTB's used to be.
