Oh dear. And here's me thinking just a bit of, admittedly interesting, FUN. I'm sure that I'm not the only "entrant" who did so in total expectation that wouldn't win (even 2 votes has greatly surprised me). What I like about this place is that it is not elitist - I hope it stays that way.

It IS only bicycles, you know.

(Oh and I did use to live in DEVON - probably before most here even mastered two wheels! - but this is of no relevance.)

Oh dear. Let's keep discussion on the bikes.

Anymore -

a) mentions of Devon (and neighbouring counties)
b) bellyaching about being 'persecuted'
c) telling everyone to calm down
d) conspiracy theories

will be binned.

Did I say I really like Erics Pre war Schwinn.

Such a beautiful bike....

Too nice really to be a klunker.
Those bikes were disposable.

As usual I always vote but never say who I voted for

My rules for voting are which bike looks right to me & which one I'd like to own & ride to within an inch of it's life.


me too!

Make that three squire. Great bike you have there and I thoroughly agree with your post...people have started taking the polls waaaay too seriously. Disappointing when all I want to do is look at pretty pictures of lump of metal.
