I get your point but in reality all early 90s bikes made of carbon were innovative as the material was still relatively new,the same as steel reached its peak in the late 80s :? carbon may not reach its peak until thirty years from now,as such 90s carbon bikes are surely retro 8)

Old school or not, the answer is subjective :wink:


Is quite right, it's all very subjective.

Perhaps you ought to reread the rules MM, esp this one

4. If you aren't prepared that your bike undergo criticism as part of BoTM don't enter it. We have many 1000s of views on this thread in a month - make sure both you and your bike are ready!

Funny how the subjective thing works. I see that STS and think 'retro' (admittedly late retro). I see the endorphin and don't really see it as being retro.

Criticism does'nt worry me john ...water off a ducks back :wink:

I just wondered where some people draw the line thats all,I think it has more to do with the period people had aspirations to rather than a year :? anyway just my thoughts.

It is subjective yes john...seeing as they are both from the same year and all :?

Anyway I see no criticism and have made none myself.

I'm glad, you just seemed quite defensive.

If you're endorphin is 96 then it's a year older than the STS. Again, all about pereception.

Anyhow I'm sure you can discuss this all day so let's not.

More carbon bikes please 8)

It is actually a highly distorted reflection of a garden chair.
