If money was no object what would your ride be?
S-Works Roubaix SL2 Dura-Ace
Specialized Bicycle Components : S-Works Roubaix SL2 Dura-Ace
If I had the money this is where it would be going.
Custom Bicycles and Frames | Independent Fabrication | Steel, Titanium and Carbon Bike Frames
i would buy this bike
cervelo s2 frame, sram red group set, zipp wheels, fsa k-force lite crankset...
I agree, I rode Roubaix S-Works around Tour of Ca TT course in Solvang back in february, it was awsome, didn't think so at the time, but rode my hybrid around same course today, the Roubaix was unbelievably AWESOME!!!
If money was no option that is
A custom steel singlespeed with a custom paint job. I have an idea of what I want for paint. The base color would be black with a hop vine wrapping the frame in a Celtic knot pattern. I'm not sure about who I'd have build the frame or paint it. I'd want to talk to a few frame builders before I decide.
-Thomson stem & seatpost
-WTB Devo or Rocket V saddle
-Titanium On One Mary bar, which unfortunately doesn't exist yet. Hopefully, someone will eventually make this type bar in Ti. I love the aluminium version, but it would be nice to have a Ti bar on a rigid singlespeed to soak up some of the harshness.
-Lock on grips (brand to be determined)
-Vicious Cycles rigid fork painted to match frame.
-Black Stan's ZTR 355 650b rims because I already have 5 26" bikes and
29er's are a fad.
-Green King ISO hubs.
-Black DT Swiss or Wheelsmith double butted spokes and brass nipples.
-2.1" Kenda Nevagals or Kenda Small Block Eights.
-Formula R1 disc brakes.
-Maybe the new Gates belt drive, but the jury's still out on that. We'll see how it performs over time. So if I went conventional, I'd probably go with the same drive train that's on my Surly: Green or black 94mm BCD 175mm RaceFace forged square taper Turbine crankset w/32t Surly ss chainring.
-Phil Wood square taper bottom bracket
-King Cog (tooth count will depend on my fitness level at the time of build. Hoping for 16t)
-Sram 8 speed chain.
-Crank Bros Eggbeater SL pedals
-And to to top it all off, a Jen Green head badge--probably some kind of Celtic design.
Co-Motion Americano or Rivendell Atlantis with an XTR build.
Any bike that feels good, looks good and I enjoy riding.
I love a bike that feels good and works good.
I keep'em cleaned and oiled and loved.
Makes me feel good to see my ride is a "dream bike" for others as well. I switched at Christmas from a Look 595 to the SL2 and absolutely love it! It is still super fast, but is also super comfortable. The Look felt like a hardcore race frame all around at the expense of comfort. The SL2 still feels racy, but is also great for all day comfort.
I built it with my Record components from my Look.
I just bought a new Toyota...This bike cost more than my new car
Mine would be this
TREK Madone 4.7 WSD 2009 :: £1625.00 :: Bikes :: Racing - Road - Womens Specific :: Ken Ellerker Cycles
Mine would be this
Trek Madone 4.7 Triple 2009 - Road Bike - Bikes Online - Tredz.co.uk
I would like this
Trek Bikes | Bikes | Women | Madone 4.7 WSD
I really like Pinarello,but I haven't seen a WSD
I'd settle for a test ride on a carbon bike, just to see what it's like—wouldn't need to own one. (I say that now...)
In a perfect world, I'd love to own a Moots road bike.
I road a Spec Roubaix at Solvang TT... DAM, I can't believe it, but I'm gettin ready to order one, not the S-works, but close, oh well.... be careful what you ask for.
here's mine ...
I'm jealous.!!! I'd love a Pinarello, especially in the Francaise de jeux colours.
I don't think they do WSD's though.
Would love to build up one of these with a Record group or have Dario do the cyclocross customization and use it as a commuter.
Right now I would like a Surly Steamroller. Rode one and loved it.
