Quick Poll: Which TDF bike? (No Spoiler, for real)lampshade

If you could have any team's TDF bike to ride (not sell), as is, which one would you choose? Dogma, King, OCLV, C-40?

Ulrich's Biachi because that's just about the only one that fits me.
OK, it would be in your size butlampshade

If it's just to ride for a short time, I want to really check out Fabio Sacchi's Cannondale with the Record Electric Shift Kit. Slick Cinelli Ram bars, Slice cranks, Record elec. shifting... I wouldn't mind putting in a couple thousand miles on that one...

But if I get to keep it, I want a Fassa Bortolo Pinarello Dogma. Cyclingnews has a nice pic of Marzio Bruseghin's Dogma, and it looks to be around a 55 to 56 which would put it in my size. I love the look of that bike.

My second choice for a keeper would be the Lotto-Domo Merckx SC III's. Sweet bikes, but I don't really care for sloping geometry. But if it was free, I would get over that in a hurry.

is the carbon Eddy Merckx an option?...bigdeal

Robbie M. has been riding it in several stages, but not all. If you look at pictures of the sprint finishes you'll see he's riding a black bike with gold stickers...same as the Merckx carbon. It's not the 'official' bike, but if it counts I think I'd go with that one. Oh, and of couse, Record.

Giant TCR Composite. It may not have the snoot factor, but it won't take a back seat to any bike in the peloton.
