is it just me, or is riding a slingshot shot like sleeping with your missus' sister?
a great thrill, but it'll end up getting you killed.

Love it for its downright madness though.
Love Rado's Zaskar in blue.
But Wadsy's DBR edges it, subtle, sweet n' sexy.


nah, won't get you killed, so long as the cable isn't damaged...though it might get you injured, due to a rock being thrown at you for riding a damn ugly bike :wink:

Crumbs ,what a choice :shock:
I keep going back to the manitous or Elite504's starship
the boulder is very red,maybe too red[and i have a very red bike too] but..
Both the manitous are added ano in a tasteful and pleasing manner.
Im voting for Nutallabrot's Manitou FS

Rados Zasker as ive seen it in the flesh and its gorgeous 8)
I give him special mention cos his bike is facing the opposite direction to the sign[at the saddle]
Flies against the wind so to speak 8)

Hmmm... not easy this time... again....!!

They made me choose between the two Manitous this time. It's them, they made me do it... I wanted to keep down those voices in my head...

I think ano should go with with CNC craftsmanship and besides the parts, the Manitous have lots of 'm.

Okay, okay.... I vote for the one with the retro tires also... and now shut up...Yes, yes, yes, I know those are those great grey Ritchey Z-max things..., don't keep on whining, I'll make the choice for that one... just please shut up..


Sorry it's an other voice trying to convince me to vote on the Manitou DH, they all do that.

I did.. and now shut up.. :twisted:

Love Nutallabrot's Manitou for the look, however is so scarce and fragile bike I wouldn't dare make any off road or even ride without constant fear I could broke it. So my vote goes to Wadsy's DBR as is an durable bike and looks stunning.
Another great month and thanks all for voting on my bike :D
