Not as disappointing a mine, but I built it for me, so its staying. Not another quite like it, for better or worse.

Thanks so much to everyone who voted for my bike this month. It really means a lot to me to be a tRoTM winner.

I can honestly say that the Emperor looks even better in real life than in the photos and is a real pleasure to ride, although the 54 front chainring and choice of 13 - 17 cogs at the freewheel means uphill gradients and headwinds are a real challenge to an overweight 53 year old! A real testimony to the skill of British framemakers.

Commiserations to the other entries, they were, as per normal, all worthy of winning and I know I couldn't choose between them.

Thanks again,

Well done Steve, the 70's TT's still hold appeal to lots of people it seems. I 'was' going to go with the Quinn this month but as soon as I saw yours posted up first day I thought better of it!!

Great winner. Thinnish month though IMHO.
