What's up with your font erraticism, man?

I don't plan on buying a new road bike so I don't have a stock response. But I would likely look at Specialized for my next bike. Currently riding a Trek.

Not really. I just ride my bike. When it breaks I buy a new one.

I dont have a dream road bike because I havent been on one or know enough about frames/manufacturers to pick. Having said that, my first roadie will be either a Cannondale or specialized, maybe even a Klein if any are still around. Somewhere in the 1500 to 2000 range, give or take a few bucks.

tough question

Difficult me for to pick a builder, though a few immediately come to mind as candidates. Impossible to argue with Moots, Serotta, and Seven for titanium fabrication, which my "dream frame" would almost certainly be. Steel opens the door for Pegoretti, Vanilla, Steelman, and a host of others.

A big element of the dream bike would be having it made to measure. I have short legs, long torso, and am pretty flexible, so getting an ideal fit on some stock geometry frames is difficult. I also am intrigued by the possiblity of working with a frame builder to tailor the ride of the frame to match my weight and riding tendencies.

Currently on a Moots, so I'm lucky enough already. Their stock 56cm fits me very, very well.:)

I'd stick with my '06 Giant OCR-1, which is full carbon with a full carbon fork and steerer, FSA carbon cranks and a 10 speed DuraAce drive train. Though I would spring for a new set of the Mavic ES Ksryium wheels. (which is my actual plan)

entirely thrilled
dream would be vanilla made fixed gear frame fork with canti brake, bottle, rack and fender mounts and clearance for 40mm tyres. philwood hubs and bb, king headset, vanilla lugged stem mated to titanium equivalent of surly torsion bars. magura hs-33's. brooks swift. not sure for cranks... edit: either the new white ind. or pauls cranks.

settle on current 'budget' would be surly steamroller, noname stem, torsion bars, magura hs-33's and everything else switched over from current fixie.

I sold a bunch of those last year. Great bike for any mt biker. The wheels will make it a bit snappier and certainly lighter.

The stock wheel (elites i think) are actually more comfortable to ride.

The steel spokes give a bit more.
