Yup.

Rigid, Flite & maguras. Floats my boat as a modern retro. As apposed to Shamus' Tracer which falls foul of my earlier comment on not really wanting to look at stuff that can be replicated (or bettered...the cranks have scratches on them!) through the use of CRC and a credit card. Nice bike though, do STW have a BOTM type thread?



:lol: I'm the opposite, I do love the Groovy, everything about it is very cool. Is just not what I would want from a modern bike.

BTW would the Groovy be the first to win BOTM and ModBOTM?



It did win BOTM didn't it?

Don't think it ever won......but not sure either..... don't have "botm winner" under my name ..... so guess not :roll:
Think it's too modern for BOTM and too retro for ModBOTM :D
Don't really bother, I love this bike

I was going to enter my RC300 but as we already have one of those I'll save it for later :wink:

Instead I'll enter this. My plastic fantastic cheque book special, 2009 Ibis Mojo SL.

Most likely the prettiest matte black bike ever seen by me......said by someone who dislikes suspension and plastic in any form :D
That bike is cool 8)

Which bit of the bike needs to be post 1998? I like to make a hotch potch of eras.

Frame I'm guessing as that is essentially the bike.

I have other pics with a crud catcher attached too :oops:

The stand out entries for me so far are the RC300 (obviously), the Salsa, the Intense and the Groovy. Unfortunately with the Groovy, everytime I look at it I keep getting distracted by the BMX style chainring. The Intense on the other hand is close to perfection. Only the silver spokes and not black ones let it down so thats where my vote will probably go, pending new entries. Nice work Shamus 8) .

It's like Cindy Crawford and her wart - beautiful despite it? or beautiful because of it? :?
