Of all the bikes here I see this is a beauty contest, so I therefore submitt my trustworthy old NORBA beater from 1989, a Cannondale "Skedaddle Bicycles" Edition. This one have outlived all of my bikes and I will never let this old beater go.

Wote for my old C'dale!


Yes! That's something different! I like! 8) :wink: 8)

Righty ho, some interesting entries thus far.

A few points.

->Two pics per bike only.
-> As others have mentioned don't think any alpinestars other than the ti-mega were US made. Won't be putting these forward to the final poll unless the owners can prove otherwise.
-> Same for the Explosif, thought these were Taiwan made.
-> The Y2K Cannondale is a bit too Y2K.

Que? My understanding was the bulk of Kona's output with the odd notable exception (Hot, Hei Hei par example) were made in Taiwan. If you can prove to me otherwise I will happily enter your Explosif into the BoTM poll.

Or to turn your question around how do you know your Explosif is US made.

I don't know if my frame was build in Taiwan or USA, that's the way of I say to you if you can explain me it. But if you say that all Explosifs was made in Taiwan all is explained.

I don't know 100% either. Sure one of the Kona fanboys will advise soon enough.

Ok, I deleted the picture of my Explosif while a Kona fan appears.

Thanks, regards.

Uffff I don't know because the frame received custom paint, and cleared all decals :( That's the way because I ask to the administrator how does he know if my frame was from USA or Taiwan.

Do you know if I could know looking the serial number?
