Just read the thread about the perfect stable - interesting. Now, If you had to narrow it to 1 bike - What would it be? The GF Superfly would be a nice start for me - I just need about $4K to add to the new bike fund and I'll be set.

Rigid 29er with multiple wheelsets, shallow/wide drop bars, bb7s but also canti posts. At least two wheelsets. Possibly suspension corrected for an 80mm fork.

This would split the difference between my 29er and cyclocross bike..

I would want a monster crosser. More cross less mountain.

Steel, no sloping top tube, clearance for 2.2s front and rear, and sliders.

The build short list would be something like this:
- Salsa Bell laps
- Ultegra 9 group
- Canti's
- pretty things to round out the cockpit

Plus at least three wheelsets

I would have an SS hardtail with a derailleur hanger, guides for full-length shifter housing, and a second wheelset so I could convert to 1x9 and back with ease.

Wait! My only bike already fits those requirements! I just need a second wheelset or even just a second rear wheel for the 1x9 part

Guess it'd be my 1x8 D440, with a second wheel set with WI eccentric rear hub, so I could run it SS. But that'd still be damn inconvenient, as I switches back and forth between geared and SS daily.
