You are more than welcome to remove my bike. I posted it only because at the time there was only one bike posted, one that was a recycled bike, much like my own.

As you wish: deleted. More people who want to have their bike deleted?

I love the look of the Clements, only slight issue is the water bottle but on the whole a really balanced looking Bicycle.

* The cable routing is my problem to the Clements as well as the too high adjustment of the stem :(
* My vote is for the Panasonic. Little note: the water bottle cages are from a later era, really pity :( Even more then the earleir mentioned yellow tires, which are nice on this bike.
* The LOOK bikes I never liked :?
* A Carlton is every month in the competition. And two pumps :roll:
* The Battaglin is my second choice. It was really hard to choose between the number 1 and 2.

The ranking according to my personal desirability would look exactly as the bikes are presently ranked in the voting, however my vote went to the Look, not because of any personal affinity but because it represents a turning point and will in the long term be the bike that I believe to be the most significant. The Battaglin pulls on the heartstrings today.

Roche! Has to be that bike. I dig the Panasonic, but the build faux pas kill me - single sided mountain bike race pedals and no cages on 'em? Really? The Look, Carlton and Clements are awesome too. Outstanding batch of bikes.
