Your 'Money-no-object" Dream Bike Shed.
#1
This sort of dream can change almost weekly as and when the next best thing is announced, but this particular fantasy bike shed has stuck with me for a while.

I won the Lottery twice last week, but I don't think £2.60 on Euromillions and £25 on the National Lottery (no matter how much of a nice surprise) will quite cover it.

Anyhoo, I reckon it must be my turn to bag a lottery win this week so when I do I'm ready with my finger hovering over the "Add to basket" button for one of these;

For a snip at £6300

And despite the divided opinions I really like the idea of getting a Fat Bike... I just don't like the idea of one being my only bike, so I reckon I may as well get me one of these for £1700;

I don't know what KTM are like as an MTB manufacturer, but if their other ventures are anything to go by I reckon they'll be pretty good, and I like the idea of having something a bit out of the ordinary.

The "Fat Rat" is not completely out of reach I spose, but on an NHS wage it's not really justifiable as a plaything. So I may well get my next full bouncer on the R2W scheme, then start getting the overtime in and save for a Fatty in a year or so.

So what's your dream bike shed‽

I think the rest of your post must have got cut off or something because I can only see two bikes here!

Haha well I can only ride one at a time, I'm to old/fragile/with crap sense of balance to ride a BMX and I don't like road riding. So not sure what else I'd want or need.

What've I missed‽

I'd have at least one of the following:

* hard tail for xc
* full suspension for xc/enduro/trails
* bmx
* urban/commuter/hybrid
* something wierd and unusual
* vintage road bike


Would look at UK manufacturers, but wouldn't rule out others. Would probably want at least two 2xHT + 2xFS.

I'm happy you have finally found a keeper, you went through a few bikes to get there!

I feel the same about my carbon Covert actually Smile It does everything i want it to very well, love the way it looks, could do with a respray to make it look new as the previouse owner didn't invisiframe it, but i would keep it the same colour. Can't imagine changing it any time soon. If i did and money no object, probably a Santa Cruz Nomad. Love the look of the Evil Undead too, but i don't ride my current DH bike enough...
