Get in early and quickly vote I thought. Now I'm going to have to go away and do some thinking. First thought is that it's between the Flandria and the Bianchi.

Now though, knowing how much work went into the Twenty and seeing the Goodies preferred mode of transport...

Really should have a protective wrapper around the spare tub on the Bianchi. Anyone got an old ice-cream advert?

Cracking choice this month - I'm at a loss which to choose! :?

Excel's A.F. Mills for me. Clean as a whistle, beautifully detailed and - in that muted grey - strangely calming to look at. It was so, so nearly the mighty Raleigh Twenty though.

the twenty is great fun and the the mills is lovely apart from the one odd brake lever(although i appreciate this lets you ride it on the road and therefore enjoy it all the more)
The Bianchi is the one i'd most like to own,classy machine,patinated but not abused.Nice.

For me its between the Flandria and the Bianchi but its a tough one.

I've yet to be convinced about red anodised hubs.

Congratulations go to Lewisfoto! Thanks to those who supported my triplet even if it was clearly outclassed here by the top two.
