Some real quality steel bikes this month, just my kind of thing.


I didn't think a Bontrager could get any better looking, how wrong was I! :wink:

Of course the fact Miss Moneypenny is loveeerly, will in no way influence my vote.






Yeah right!! :lol:

its going to be tough to catch the mountain goat :wink:

and what are the tyres ? the brown colour of the walls is so "rich" and "warm" that it truly embellishes the bike 8)


Salut, the tyres are Old(news) Michelin from 1989
Here are some more pictures from the Goat:

Thank you for your sweet commments, it is a gorgeous bike and I'm so glad I decided to add it to my collection! I can't believe how different a steel Bontrager rides in comparison to my aluminium Rocky - so much more responsive. The only thing that took a bit longer to get used to was the difference between the XTR cantilevers and disc brakes - that could have been messy at times! :wink:

I only posted the pic of me riding it following woody and his picture with his stunning Blizzard. I had already posted what I felt was a great group riding shot with me and the Bontrager in for 'potm'......Then I thought maybe instead of two bike pics, I'd join woody and add a bit more 'realism' to it as fluffy chicken had pointed out how good it looked! :D
