Latest coolwall vote is to be on US brand 'Nuke Proof'.

I have been contacted by a journo who is writing an article for BIKE on Nuke Proof. Any good quotes, observations or anecdotes may well find there way into said publication.

As ever a few images to get you started...

Of the bikes I've got at the moment, this is still my main rider and favourite.
Granted the hubs are rubbish but the name and logo did it for me BITD.

Hubs and handlebars are crap but the Reactor frame and fork combo is bad ass! Neutral on the Control Tech clone stems. Call it a push...and then factor in the cockroach and my vote swings to.....
