Buddy of the month?

My favourite is deffo sinnermans Lloyd. It is lovely and most importantly it is not something seen in every botm.

Also, thanks for the votes my kili has received, pleasantly surprised I was:D

Any and all of 'em - they're just bicycles, you know! Nothing particularly intrinsically clever nor new about any bicycle built in the last 100 years or so.

mr_ships Manitou for me, the most tastefully built Manitou I've seen since BiTD. Not an easy decision though the Merlin's and Mantis (to name but two) made me indecisive on the button to say the least. Honourable mention to the alpinestars too :wink:

Some lovely bikes this month, making a very hard decision.

Kili Comp
Mantis
Spesh M2
Dave LLoyd.....are all V.cool

But for me its the DeKerf cos its my alltime favorite bike & looks cool with the red accents, not over the top :)

Arithmetical aside: %ages add only to 82! Rounding down has gone too far I say!

Yes too true! It's a sham democratic vote that's what it is, get the independent observers in with their UN arm bands and some chaps in blue berets to guard them whilst they go about their business inspecting the credentials and provenance of every bicycle here...

:roll: calm down, they're just old bikes and this month we're deciding which is our favourite based on whatever criteria we see fit. If it's a popularity contest for the owner then so be it.
