Oh dear, I don't know what to do!!

I do like a nice short wheelbase TT bike but the Raleigh has Yorkshire connections. The Orbit and Peugeot are my favourite colours and the other 2 are subtle classic black.

Perhaps I'll wait until next month.......................... :? :roll:

Obviously you mean my Omega rather than Orbit....

I knew that it's your favourite colour Ned that's why when I was building it I was consciously making decisions to make the build as aesthetically pleasing to you as I possibly could, why else would I have chosen purple handlebar tape?

I'm not trying to sway your decision of course but just highlighting that I'd be crushed if you did not vote for my bike when you played such a big part in how it turned out :D

Sorry :oops:

At least it does start with an 'O'.

I wasn't aware that I had a big part................................. :roll:

Indeed a lovely bike and a win by a mile!

Disappointing result for my own entry which confirms my decision to sell it!!!!
