Lo, and gaze upon these monsters of twisted tubes upon which I will build my holy church, this bike-temple of wonder that we are calling The FRO.

Although it pains me to put any bike up against a Jellybean (even though should have Mag 21s right, kids?!), in the interests of global retro unity I persuaded Mike at Black Mountain Cycles to let me enter one of his awesome personal collection of bikes into our humble BOTM - he was a little bemused to say the least - probably at my sacriligious selection, but hey ho... I got to choose!

This beautifully understated and rare '89 (if I remember correctly) Mantis Valkyrie by Richard Cunningham moved to Germany from whence Mike rescued it and is a bike I've always wanted to ride - one day, c'mon Mike ;-), I might even own one...

PS. If you're a Mantis or elevated fan like me, there's more detail here:
