Finally found time to get this together. Some real nice variety this month :) Sadly the Dynatech is under new ownership so cannot be entered. The Delta V was entered in March rather than February so maybe keep that one back for the next eligible month.

Pick your favourite two from this little lot....

Flying V (despite the Fugly wheels, It's that nice!) and the Breezer for me.

Can only be the Alan.

I don't visit this forum often, today I did it looking for two things: a Rock Shox RS1 fit to an iconic bike, and a Campagnolo group. And the Alan may not have the RS fork, but it's a masterpiece mounted in Campagnolo. That's everything to me.

I just don't like the Flite.

Toms delta for me - the only bike I would like to ride and close up it doesn't look like a retro bike to me (in my old age) comapred to the others.

So well done to Dale for being years ahead in design and production - to me a bit like BMW are compared to Ford

The Brodie & the Alan are the 2 I most want to thrash down some forest trails.
