I wasn't sure that this topic would attract many entries but I've been blown away by the quantity and quality we've seen. Has certainly given me a few ideas for an upcoming build :) As usual though, only one can win. The poll will run for 7 days. Good luck everyone

Going to be hard to decide again, i would happily ride all of them, even THM's, as there is a fence at the side to climb up onto it :D

I could easily find a reason to vote for every one of them but thing the Ibis just about wins out. Lovely, clean build. 8)

What an excellent haul. Great to see so many different approaches to bars, brakes, shifting and usage.

I’m torn between some perfect builds and practical riders.

I recognise the importance of drop-bars in our history...but

Great to see another bike with corks in the ends of the bars (Doctor-bonds Marin PM). For what it's worth the champagne cork in the left hand bar end of my RM Blizzard comes from a trophy winning wine my partner Anna made (Tohu Rewa Rose Methode 2016). The right one is from a cheap aussie GSM, because it's a utilitarian bike and it shouldn't get ideas above its station.
