Have to agree with Max, that Klein is nice but so are at least half a dozen others if not more (and I'm very surprised that the Lobster has not got more votes).

Still, the Klein has clearly blown away a lot of people.

I voted for the Merlin, work of art but looks like you could still have a blast on it.. Different is always cool in my book :)

Thats really sad.

I thought that a singlespeed month would induce people to vote for the bikes that had soul and character (and obviously have had a bunch of use)


I was wrong.

I looked through all the bikes on here and thought:

"That Klein is nice though"












...and voted it for it. :lol:


Then I realise 32 other people thought the same.


Oh dear - looks like a bling bike wins over all regardless of expectation..



:?

Yep, I've finally realised that dragging my sorry a**e endlessly round a muddy field wasn't enough!

On this one it seems it all depends on what you're voting criteria is:
Best looker, best workhorse or most original. It's good to see such a variety of styles, being relatively new to singlespeed.
The unclutterd look works so well, and so very light :)
I now want an equally feathery geared bike, so I'm stalking down the work colleague who bought my Prestige from me years ago.... to liberate it :D

Why the avalanche of anger old chap? Due to another predictable vote??

For what it's worth I really like your Bonty, great attention to detail.
