Infinite money?

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

I'd be a nightmare if I won the lottery....cars and bikes!

I don't think I could have a single bike; I don't have loads of money now and I have more than one and am constantly tempted by others! But on the list would be...

FSR DH (just because)
Ibis Mojo
Devinci Wilson
Specialized Demo 8 Carbon

Plus many more. I'd also spend an awful lot of time on the bike...BC, Chamonix, Le Deux Alpes etc.

I actually prefer the racing models but the randonneurs are the most collectable so....

There isn't one bike that would do it all, I'd need one for each of the following:

Hardtail xc
Hardtail 4x
Full sus xc
Full sus bigger stuff
Full sus dh
Singlespeed rigid
They'd all really be newish though, then I'd get my:
Jmc replica (or the real thing)
Manitou fs and dh
M1
Yeti in aqua fade
Pace rc200
In fact anything I lusted after and haven't owned, or still want to own!

If i'd need to do it as above:

Nishiki Z29+some upgrades
ML8 for the more bigger hits
Durance for the Dutch mtns
And MUCH more bikes I don't even know but I like.

Was, and my £500odd budget was never going to win it... still bid very early on!
