In the annals of sport there have been many great contests. England vs Germany at Italia 90. The Rumble in The Jungle. Beamon jumping 8.9m. Armstrong taking his 7th Tour (actually, maybe scratch this one).

Anyhow onto Bike of The Month May 2013. This month we have pitted three mountain bike giants against each other. Kona vs GT vs Specialized. Who will take the glory.... You decide :D

For me it was a close run thing between three of the Konas; but for a better photo' I would have gone for GM's 'Rat' again...

...as it is, the simplicity of BCM's AA gets my vote this month 8)

It was seeing a Kona Kilauea that brought me here all those years ago so I had to vote for the best one on show.

It could only be Gravy Monster's.

Had to be a kona.

All lovely bikes this month, and an honourable mention to the Rat. Nice for someone to be brave about something different.

Enjoyed the story and the results speak for themselves.
