very tough choice this month, but in the end had to go with a combination of the member and the bike; really like Tim and his Timber Comp- gets my vote again 8)

Klaus, nice work with the KHS.

Would really be cool if a requirement for entry into the BoTM would be a thread over in the reader's rides section, so that more detailed pics and background story could be seen on each bike. A link could be provided with each bike pic. Perhaps would make for a more informed vote. Guess most entrants have this.

What a great month! Makes it v. hard to choose though. :?

Very taken by the Doc's Stumpy, but sad that the flames have gone :(

The Raleigh is also very attractive, especially with its bridgeless chainstays - a detail I've always been drawn to on roadbikes: how daring of the frame builder. 8)

But in the end I had to plump for the Explosif - an iconic 80's ride with an unmistakeable silhouette and great paint job. Beautiful clean build too. :) :) :)

Kuwahara for me.
But why isn't MrK's MF in here somewhere? Surely a potential winner in this class, or has it won before so its not eligible? :D
I don't know what i'm on about, just waffling :roll: :D

FYI, that makes you seem like a bit of a fool.

After all that I voted Cunningham. That bikes like that are still around to be looked at and discussed makes me happy :)
