Interesting angle Neil, one I'd best play up to in order to gain a few more votes.

Here's a picture of a British bulldog to get you all voting for the Overburys'

Same here old chap. Definitely not 'that kind' either. Nice sig too :wink:


Ah geez, how can I compete with that. :roll: :P


Thought you might like the sig. ;)

Was gonna vote for the RTS but then scolled down and saw rumpfy's pysclone yummy, so my vote had to go that on this occasion. Just the disc drive and the rockshox on the front, they looked so so much better like that and in gold. Ahhh brings back memories.

If it'll help the voting, here's the full parts spread and some more pictures of the GT and a bit of history on it.

And the parts spread and more pics of the Slingshot.

I had to go with the Miyata Century. I've always liked that bike. The only thing wrong with it is it's not my size. Elev12k, you have some great taste in bikes. Good job.

Same as in the build up for me - Rumfy's GT is incredible. My all-time dream bike, from the best year in GT's history.

Rumfy - think 'roon might be interested in buying that H20 cage off your Shot! He's starting a collection of splatter Ringle bits...

Great bike mate - try and find some more mag20 forks for it though...!

Thanks for the kind words. :)

I actually genuinely like how this bike rides. It's a bit heavy, but fun to throw around.


I'm not soooo attached to that cage that I wouldn't consider never parting with it, but I know its got some desirability.

As for the Mag21's....I've got 3 sitting in my garage, one with custom titanium stanctions. They all feel like hell. Mushy, fluid spilling, no air pressure holding.

I put that Syncros Powerlite fork on there and it's fantastic.

I think the Mag21'd do look proper on that bike, but they just don't ride well IMO.

It has got to be Tam's Bomber. Ok, so strictly it's before the times of Mountain Biking as we know it, but, what a cracker!
