This months MBR rates the Zaskar as one of the top ten bikes of the decade. Way ahead of its time geometry wise, great ride blah blah etc.

It was also the oldest bike that made it into their top ten. As the only retro bike that received this honour, I'm now proclaiming the Zaskar as the best retro-bike in the universe.

As a result of this accolade I'm fully expecting the price of Zaskar frames to reach Klein proportions on e-bay and I'll soon be retiring early when I cash in on mine.

Thats all.

:D

Out of interest what were the other frames?


This list of top ten frames usually boasts the Pace RC100, Klein Attitude and Fat's Yo Eddy. So be interesting to see what makes the cut this time...

No, I think that there's a fair bit of (and I'll say this quietly) bike snobbery when it comes to GT's. Too many people unwilling to look past the triple triangle design and see what is actually a bloody good bike.

It's the best bikes thay've ridden in the past 10 years so the likes of the RC100 etc won't be there.
