Both Defiants, the Fats and Jupke's RM Element, as well as some others are superb, . But I HAD to cast my vote for Racer X's Edge! :shock:

It's superclean and supernice and I just like Boulders.

Was going to vote for Alf's Surly but his instructions on how to post pictures on the forum didn't work so he can just jolly well not get my vote.

Well I might reconsider if he buys cake on Sat mornings velocake trip.

Thems the rules jim!!

Come on you lot, I'll be happy with 2% this month. :wink:

knowing the work that has gone into his bike, and the fact i had a poster of it on my wall when i was a kid i'm going for longun's trek.

the picture is terrible but it is truly beautiful up close and personal.

If I could build / own any of the bikes on the list it would be wadsy's king kahuna, fantastic looking bike and spec.

However, for retro cool I had to vote for the Mt Tam, awesome, closely followed by the Maveric.

Some very nice bikes there. Between the IF and the Rock Lobster Team for me...

Neither knowing nor caring about details such as "correct" brakes (I favour functionality over originality), my vote goes to the '94 Rock Lobster. Simply the one I'd most like to own!

First of all..... :shock: wow !.....what a selection of amazing bikes !...Racer X's '94 Rocky Mountain is...well...totally wow...Longun's Trek 9000 looks the absolute biz.....and the paintjob alone on the Grove Innovations X Neon Solar is bonkers in the absolute.....but the '91 GT Cyclone is the one I would love to ride away on the most....REALLY hard to decide though as although I'm a bit of a GT fan I've spent a LOT of time looking at Rocky Mountain bikes.....fantastic dedicated work by everyone......walks away realising he's never built anything this good....but happy that someone else has :D
