All of the bikes this month are too OTT for my taste.

Had to go for Racer X's pace - even though I hate purple ano. It sums up in a nutshell just how OTT things could be in the early 90s.

When he wrote
"tryed to go for as much anodizing as i could with out going to over the top"

I think he was teasing.

Thanx mate for voting for my bike
your right it does some up the early to mid 90s Very retro
I can remember getting ready to race in 1992 at the mavern hills classic and seeing a pace just like mine and always wanting one so 18 years on had to make this one my dream bike :D

Hmmmm.......difficult. Altho' I don't like the rear sus on the Manitous, as an overall piece they do look good. Wondering why none of the blue themed ones don't seem to have blue Mavic rims. Square Paces LOOK lovely - but then I bought one and to me it rode like a brick shed and I can't divorce that disappointment from the aesthetics now.

As this is an "anodizing" competition I guess the whole point is appearances...so the "first" listed Manitou (can't remember which til I go back to pics!) gets my vote. I wouldn't WANT one though!

It's a Manitou lockout at the minute, room on the blind side for someone to sneak in?
