My bike already has the Gold :wink:

I have to overthink. It will be a difficult decision this time.

Though I love Jez's Klien, I just can't get past the wheels :?

My vote has to go to the Ritchey...classic lines, history and some funky bullhorn bars. Gotta love it.

cheers,

rody

Normally, for me Miyatian, it is not very realistic that I will vote another if there is a topnotch Miyata in the competition. As I don't wanna vote my own I won't vote the Century..... and as already said; it already has the Gold

It should be CK's Ritchey or the Grove tandem.

I choose the tandem. Important points that led to the victory are:
- I liked the story on it
- It is built by the man hisself
- It is a one of a kind, innovative design
- Like the looks

Therefore a worthy winner!
