I have one modern bike, the Yeti 575, which is used for most things and day rides. The P20 is mainly a summer bike with a view to protecting it. The Bonty however is the winter hack, so i'm not as precious about it. I went for it because its more interesting, has a certain something about it, compared to the off the peg modern stuff.

Well I must admit I have a Tuner 5-spot,a steel crosser and a Giant Tcr for the road.Just aquired an old Bonty Race OR because I can't get away from some old school steel! Brings back memorys from the early 90's when I bought my first bike a Trek Singletrack 930 and I Saw a Bonty in the shop there i couldn't afford! It was gorgeous,fully loaded with Bonty rigid forks and white Porcupines!
