1st - Goat
2nd - mfh Zaskar
3rd - Amplifier

The Funk pedals are out of place, especially on low profile cranks. (Syncros?) and the Brave gets disqualified for having fork blades as chainstays! :lol:

All these Ti bikes are starting to look the same to me. Black and silver, black and silver. There are like nine of the same things this month. Looks like a catalog. *snore* :(

Well for me as i had to choose between the Bonty and the Rocky Mountain.......but after much deliberation i plumpted for the lady of the group as i feel that we should all offer as much support as possible to the fairer sex in what is mainly a mans MTB world.

You are right on it is hard to compare a bare Ti bike to a nicely painted bike. Kinda like going back to the 50's with black and white TV....but that would be real retro. :)

The painted bikes are very nice. I like them better.

Interesting - lots of love for the Blizzard in the posts but then it lags behind the Funk that has had only a few mentions :?

The Golden Goat is brownly perfect; the Funk is appealing yet wide; and for that rare balance of catalogue and "yes it gets used", the Blizzard walks it.

But for me, 4130's Merlin is the real deal: subtle quality, properly retro, and well executed.

Top month. Well done indeed.

I voted for the Funk. Didn't feel I needed to post. The bike speaks for itself.



And I love the pedals, too. :D
