My fluo green Wilier Cento1SR.

Would like to swap the group to something else though. Right now it has Sram Red/Black. Maybe Campy SR or Shimano 9000.

A set of Zipp 303s would also be nice.

This is a fun topic to think about. Off the cuff I'd go with a Seven Mudhoney SL with rack and fender mounts, painted to look like a POS, Hollowgram SRM, debadged Force, Alchemy/CX Ray/Stan's 340, locking bolt on skewers. That should cover summer road riding, fenders and studded tires in the winter, and with most of the logos removed hopefully it'd be low profile enough to lock up at the store.

As lame as it may sound, the 2012 CAAD10 in Gulf Racing colors, with DA-9000. Nothing exciting, just incredibly beautiful.

Either that or a Firefly. Because Firefly. Firefly with DA-9000 and full Enve kit would be awfully swell.

What is it about Gulf Racing livery that makes it so attractive? Damn, that color scheme is sexy!

I'm actually in the process of building my dream bike. It is costly, but the "dream" is fulfilled not just by buying top shelf parts. I could spec a bike that costs $25k, but it may not be very tasteful or it may reflect strongly on the fashion of the day and lack a timeless quality that I want in a bike I'll ride for decades to come. To that end, my dream bike is shaping up to be:

* Seven Ti, custom
* Ultegra di2
* Enve Fork 1.0
* Rolf Prima Elan Alpha wheels
* Thomson seatpost and stem
* Selle Italia SLR carbonio
* Zipp bars
* King headset
* King Ti bottle cages

It could be more exotic for sure, but I'm not sure much more "dreamy".

Ridley Noah. Or maybe a Genesis Volare (steel still has a purpose!)
