quick top trump example.

Each card has a bike
List of spec under each photo of bike
Then alternate turns to choose what you think is good on your card, and trump the others (kinda like Donald on the apprentice)
ie
Gears (18, 21, 24, 27 etc lower is best, but not 1 cos thats new skool)
Frame material (steel or ti best obviously)
Suspension Travel (less is more in retroland)
Head tube length (shorter the better - hey they look best)
Saddle to bar drop (big is best to look cool)
Bar width (narrow is best)
Stem length (Scants 160mm monster trumps all, apparently)
RetroFactor (hey, how cool it is)
Manufacturer rating (ie Kona =1, FAT=10 high is best obviously)
Number of anodised parts in same colour (high is best)
Does Jez own one (big minus :wink: )
etc..

New calendar thread here > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3818

Top trumps could still be on the cards. Pun intended.

I always think cars are the best example for top tumps. So something like a litespeed would be the lancia delta stratos. A specialized ultimate would be an austin allegro (not even vanden plas)

Let's face it - John, our benign dictator, is going to decide which is the top trump... and rightly so, I say.

Just make it a rusty Ballistic or there might just be a terrible error at the printers! :shock: :)

I'd always hoped I'd be an un-benign dictator :twisted:

In all seriousness if someone wants to put something together on the top trumps front that'd be cool.
