If mid-90s Yeti counts as retro, then I ride retro off-road and a 99 Cannondale on the hard stuff.

Like many before me, I love the classic lines of the old school. Does this mean I wouldn't buy a "proper" Merlin or Litespeed titanium? Does it 'eck, if only they hadn't changed the graphics (or sold the company)

Were money no object, and I wanted a new bike tomorrow I'd go for an Independent or a Lysnkey http://www.lynskeyperformance.com/ or similar

Give me the choice between an extra 4 hours a week on my current bike and my current levels of riding on anything of my choice, I'd take more time on the bike any day of the week (except possibly Tuesday after tea time)
