It’s been awhile since we’ve posted our dream bikes, so hey, why not start a new thread.

Personally, I’ve been spending lots of time looking at Rivendells, particularly ones like Grant Petersen’s Atlantis:

I noticed that, which is why I specified before I found myself pushing that around for 100 miles.

My dream bike changes every day, however, a pack of 100 5mm allen wrenches would be nice! ;)

Nate, the plastic grocery bags really ruin the elegance.

While not especially aesthetically pleasing… the Co-Motion Americano Rohloff struck me the other day as my dream utilitarian commuter bike. Especially coupled to a Bikes at Work trailer.

Before I found my craigslist 1980’s mixte I wanted the A-Line from Sweet Pea Bicycles .

Now for the future I’m liking the Public bikes like this one:

I dig Pedersens, but I couldn’t ride one without a yellow seat. And a Chiquita sticker…

Dream bike #2: A.N.T. Bike Light Roadster (Probably with a Sturmey Archer S3X 3-Speed Fixed hub)

An ANT bike is on my short list as well. Real short. Like, give it a month assuming all goes according to plan.

+1 ANT roadster, although I’d likely go singlespeed/fixed.

+2 for ANT.

Also, the original Ira Ryan porteur is very awesome.

That is a nice Ryan. If only someone had matching pedals to go with it…

Ooooo, what model/specs, Brad???


BradQ

Custom touring bike. Still sort of working out specs.

That framebuilding class looks sweet. I’m thinking of saving up my pennies for 2012.

I’ll have a full report once I’m back. Ant Bike Mike is about the nicest and smartest guy you’ll come across in the bike industry, I really can’t fathom this not being mind blowing awesome.


Drewbacca

Wow, what a cool idea. IF I ever win the lottery, I’ll buy everyone in this thread the six-week class! :D

@headloss I can agree to those terms, as well :-)
