Geoff, here's something that might help you decide!
I was equally torn - between the Mantis, the Jellybean, the Funk and the Campagnolo Fat Chance - however, seeing one of these contenders in it's element on Saturday, ridden with gusto in testing conditions, has swung my vote. Looks as good mud-splattered as it does shiny!
PS. Or maybe it was the shirt...
PPS. Maybe we could have a Retrobike rideout bike end-of-the-year special - any bike that turned out at an official ride to be automatically entered?
