Hope nobody's going to be offended by my comments about the bikes
Stop reading here if you think you might be, otherwise carry on
First let's get the no-hopers out of the way.
Lemond Fan's 1991 Greg Lemond/Calfee Z Team Replica
LeMond is my one of my least favourite riders, enuff said.
Flyingfinn's 1987 531 Bromwich
Looks very bland, and I'm not really a Shimano fan. Plus the shape of the fork rake is not good looking. And I don't like all black tyres, and it has a modern saddle.
Spike's Chris Chance track bike
Forks, stays and head tube in one colour, the 3 main tubes in another?
OK Merckx did the hour record on s/f hubs but they don't look right on a track bike. And the fork crown is ugly. The overall look of the bike gives an impression of being too fussy.
Citoyen du monde's Bob Jackson short wheelbase tandem
I think you'd have to be colour blind to come up with this paintjob.
alecstilleyedye's 1951 claud butler olympic sprint
The saddle's too low, or the frame is too big. Also ugly forks.
Now we come to the contenders.
Old Ned's 1973 Dave Russell
Actually I think this should be the winning bike. It has great proportions, has all the right parts. The frame is in an attractive colour with just enough detailing, although I would like to see a tubing sticker as well. But to be super critical, it's not going to get my vote, because I don't like the shape of the fork blades, nor the white hoods.
dutchie's 1976 Jan Janssen
This gets my vote because it's nicely proportioned, and has an aesthetically pleasing curve of the the fork blades, which you don't see on many bikes.
