Geez, ya sell your Turners and 'they' just use any excuse to discredit you.

I'd ride on the moon.... no wait, I'd do two chicks at once....... on the moon. :thumbsup:

But seriously, I'm pretty freaking happy with my current ride, so I'd get the frame and all the parts blue printed, and lighten it up a little without compromising performance. I'd buy a bunch of other bikes as well. Then I'd have my own private lift serviced MTB Park with a full time dedicated trail building/maintenance crew. I'd have water guns lining the trail, so I could have that 'third day after rain' most of the time.

I'd have my own helicopter for snowboarding. I'd own a replica of the Nurburgring and a Varity of racing cars. A 1967 Lotus F1 (pre wing era). Various NGT & GTR cars. I'd host races.

Well one thing is for sure; with all the money in the world I'd still MTB 4 or 5 times a week. I do that anyway, so in the end I don't really need all that money - well except to do two chicks at once on the moon.

{edit} - I'd also drive out to Nebraska and kick CC in the nuts

roadie

well... this time last year I bought 4 motobecane 'le champion sl' road bikes from bikesdirect.com. Parted out three of them on ebay and ended up with a 15.5lb road bike with nice components for about $300. Add on really nice pedals, shoes, high end saddle, a few upgrades and misc. other roadie stuff and I've probably got $850 in it.

I know it's not what I "would do"... but more of what I "did do" but I guess I'm saying I'd do it again. Ya, road riding sucks compared to mtn biking, but at least you can get out in the afternoon even if it rains all morning (hell, you can even ride in the rain if you want), and it builds endurance and burns calories like crazy.. man I'm hungry.

No other criteria?
Err...my new IRO Mark V track bike? The frame was $375, bar, stem, headset was $150, and the other existing parts and wheelset cost me about $450 a few years ago.

Now, the more astute readers with be saying "Whoa, dude, you're over budget". And you'd be right, 'cept those be Canadian dollars. :cornut: I would have inserted a joke here about pesos a few years back, but our dollar is doing alright these days.
Even with the current exchange rate, I figure it comes close enough, especially considering it's not even a mountain bike and we're all just goofing anyway. We are goofing, right?


I can snap some pics this evening if anyone is interested in a bike that has no business on dirt.

Well I've changed my mind; I'm going to be charitable.

I'm buying all the starving kids in Africa an Ibis Mojo with full xo/king/Thomson.

But since you were the AZ state champ or sumpthing, you can drive my cars. Now where to find limitless cash.... hmmmm anyone have a copy of 'Drug Cartels for Dummies' that I could borrow.
