If I won the lottery then I would most likely stay with the same brand I have now but go for one of these:

Infinite money?

I doubt I would be thinking about bikes. Too busy ending world hunger and disease and planning colonisation of distant planets.

If I could justify say, five grand on a bike I guess I would be going custom steel-ish full susser.

Infinite money? I'd use a tiny part of it to take me, my wife and a close friend or two to as many good European riding locations as I could fit into the decent riding years I have left (which isn't very many, more's the pity).
The rest of it I'd try and do useful stuff with, not waste it on bikes :wink: .

If I had infinite money I can guarantee I wouldn't be spending it on a Generalized with (jumping on the band)wagon wheels! ;)

That's like winning the lottery and going out and buying a top of the range Ford Focus!
