Some of the very best and the very worst bikes we have seen on RB!

A couple of the Cannondales were after manufacturing went to the far east and the Kona is an Eastern made Canadian brand...

I was torn between the DBR, Xizang, AMP and the Ultimates but looking at the thread it has to be one of the Yetis.

Most guys on this Site could give the address of the original factory, name the riders, number plate of the box van etc. How many bike brands are there where the welder has a cult following and can start his own business (FTW)?

Difficult vote this one... My five favorites are:

Bushpig's Cunningham
Sidewinder's Ritchey P22 Team
Sithlord’s P20
Arran's Mantis XCR-EC
tam_shadow's 1939 Chicago Schwinn DX

Many other tremendous bikes...Wards, Rodriguez, the Yetis..

The Cunningham wins it for me :)

Yeti-mans Cannondale for me as well. Nothing like a well used bike. Never got the point of garage queens.

It's between StarTREK, Wadsy and Omar71 for me......I think I'm going for Omar because I still feel stupid for selling my Xizang. :(

Some beautiful bikes here and the Cunningham is a beaut and obviously very special indeed.
But I am going for tam_shadow's 1939 Chicago Schwinn DX

Tricky one. Love the Grove and surprisingly really like the DBR and Kona Hot too, but mfh126's Yeti Ultimate took the spoils for me this month. Really nice build that Ultimate Ultimate.
