Pro-deal Dreamin'

Just got the following e-mail from a friend:

so....I can prodeal Orbea, Look, Cannondale, Moots, Surly, Salsa and Soma bikes. just sayin if you're in the market.

I'm not really in the market (which he knows :mad:), but it sure is tempting. What would the forum choose? Be realistic; be ridiculous. Whatever.

I would say the Soma Stanyan. Super affordable steel from San Francisco? Yes please. But I would re-paint it so that I could do a naked steel finish on all the lugs, not just the head tube ones.

My flashy porn choice would be a Look 595--but those things are so unforgiving... A guy like me enjoys comfort over pure efficiency.
