I like em all really :?

pinarello is nice, reminds me of the serrota t-max colours.

red and gold fat , bloody good build and lovely colour.

Trimble, because I like em and don't think they look like a hairdryer.

Nishiki, I always wanted one.

the Ritchey is just stunning, so stunning I don't think it needs my vote.

the Yeti, doesn't do it for me somehow :o

so I'm going for..............[drumroll]............... the Overburys

Class british bike, nice campy groupo, a U-brake and its even got the all important period feature of a rear mech guard :)

I should have decals (and therefore new, better pics) soon.
Is it ok to swap my pics around when I have new ones John?
Cheers :wink:

My criteria for voting this month is mainly who's got their bike in their gallery (bonus points for extra information or different pictures, minus points for not even having a gallery) and has it got three chainrings.... :lol:

The Overbury takes my precious vote this time!

Neil

PS. Reach for the irony, peeps... :roll: :wink:

The Nishiki Alien only looses out because of the chain ring bolts so I have to vote for the Ritchey.
It's a one off historical item that the original owner modified then...never rode. How many of those are you gonna find.

Hope to see you next month Jeff.

I will.
The trouble is that the seattubes on Vit T2s vary a little - meaning that the correct size shim (as fitted) is a bit big.
I will be filing it down soon!
:wink:
