my wife used to catch the ferry from there every morning.
I quite like the kona cruiser, but then I like cruisers generally :)

The Verlicchi has to take it -for me - represents the leftfield tastes our 'membership' harbours in its midst! Also has historical value, is European and is a brave submission for being an FS (when I guess the jury is out on FS being true retro and a lot of people 'blame' downhill for ruining the sport back in the day).

As usual with Melvin, a textbook presentation from his leafy backyard - can't wait to see some action photos!

Way to go Melv!

The Bonty is not allowed to win because despite being a lovely bit of kit the BOTM award cannot go down under with the ashes looming so close ! We're about to hand them back so BOTM must stay British ...


I'm a Pom! :cry:

Tough month though, any could be BOTM in their own right! I'd gladly have any one in my house!

They all look great, but I voted for the Verlicchi for all the reasons mrkawasaki mentioned.
