Ti-Mega just edges it over the Pace for me. :)

I'm surprised the Manitou FS has only 6% - though I have to admit I went for the Ti-Mega myself after much deliberation...

Dead heat for me - I shall toss a coin.

I've tried not to detect any trend in the comments - actually, I rather think that it should be a blind vote: it's very easy to be swayed by the majority!

No doubt heresy, but one thing that mars many for me is skinwall tyres, which aesthetically I do detest.

All very lovely bikes and a tribute to owners' skills and patience (to the latter of which I could never aspire!).

Not at all sure- leaning towards the Ti-Mega or Jerky's Pace

Anyone got any ideas for BOTM specials? Heres are my offerings straight out of rightfield

How about a pre 1990?
Titanium only
FS only
I reckon Fat Chance only would be cool too.


Anyone else?

Nice group all.

But, for me it's LeGrandeFromage.

I like the cut of his jib.

This site has how many registered users and we're only at 207 votes. I'm thinking this is even one of the higher vote totals I recall seeing in a while.

BoTM has slowly been increasing in voters, from 200 - 250odd last year I think
