The Guv’nrs Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra, maybe... love it, and the cranks set it appart (i love those mavics, just got off riding a set 10 ish minutes ago)

but the klein is nice, and i love klein/am building one up

and that Pennine is classy/classic

and the paris and the other eddys and the colnago ARGUH going to have to consider this one hard!

so many choices.

Tough choice between the Paris Galibier and the MKM TT :D

MKM looks brand new and the colour combo of the frame, components and wheels is just perfect

The Paris is so cool though 8) would love to own one someday

My Vote: Paris Galibier


:)

Tough indeed. I think my vote will have to go to The Guv’nrs Eddy Merckx Corsa Extra, because the groupset is something you don't see every day and it all fits together. Besides that the colours are nice and matched.

LGF gets points for finding a bar tape that matches the paintjob, I wouldn't have thought tapes like that existed :P

Daj’s GT Force is also extremely nice, but I get the feeling that it could be even nicer. Especially the fat saddle lets it down a bit, and with some drop bars, all black tyres and without the bottle it would improve it immensely

The same goes for MCK’s Klein, Quantums drive me crazy but it wouldn't be fair let my fetish bias my opinion. Clean up the tapes, throw some all black tyres around the wheels and lose the bottle (just for the picture ;) )

In the end the Paris got it, ededwards had stirred thoughts of L'eroica one day and this is what I'd love to do it on. The Mercian gets and honourable mention. 8)

According to the 'linger-longest' method, the LeJeune gets my vote over Old Ned’s MKM TT.
