Again lots of nice bikes on display and at last some of them even seem to have been ridden rather than people spending alot of Dinar on something to look at.

The Pace (listed by Pace) looks good as does the GT aggressor, but for me the best has got to be the original TBG CinderCone listed by Sinnerman.
That bike looks truelly original in all its splatter paint glory, who would have thought a drunken night with a few tins of paint would still look so good all these years on, and the influenece they have had over all subsequent MTB's, they where the frames that set the new standard.

My humble vote is cast firmly in the direction of 'sinnerman' and his gloriously perfect looking Cinder Cone.

Nice one gazzo, I think this is the first mountain bike that pierced my conscience. Started a fascination with cannondales :)

graham its loooooooooooooooong, when i decided to resurrect my race bike from 20 years back, i enjoyed doing it a lot, but knowing the cindercone was sadly a tad small now, i thought id let my lad ride it on the revival retro club rides we organise, hes a tall 14, ( ironic really as i bought it with my paperround money back in the day, i was 14), its a tbone stem, that i custom painted,( back in the day i wanted to refinish my rear brake booster and custom paint my stem too, but sadly couldnt afford it) he loves it and is riding it now more than his own modern race bike.....i ride the explosif which was the bike i had when i was 16,( see pics attached in photobucket). i do still have all the original parts, including velocity stem, tyres, and even the chain...lol....i just cant bring my self to ditch it.......lol.
