i find it hard to vote for the obvious ones in this ,every month
maybee because i'll never own a cunningham or a grove
but if i did no-one would care anyway ,and it wouldn't be my history
thats piled the provenance on it
so i look to the used/loved bikes the ones like so many that have
had a real history ,raced ridden couriered left under a tarp etc , led a full life
so yetimans old dale it is
love the mantis too tho

Very difficult decision this month :?

Love the Ti DBR & GT, the AMP is a beaut & so is the battered old 'dale but i usually cast my vote to the one i'd like to take home & this month the Slingshot gets it, just minimalist in every sense 8)

for me it's Red_riviera's 2000 Cannondale F1000SL
it made me stop and look the longest (apart from my own, i love that bike)
although MCSanandreas' Moho cxs was a very close second
it's a hard one this month

Now, The Hot is an ubercool bike, but retrobike's Kona Fetish this is getting ridiculous!


I wouldn't worry it won't go close to winning

YES !!! I made it... and just before 02:15h (after midnite, midnight or whatever you like it to call.. I go to bed)
Never had such a difficult selection procedure.. all kind of reasons passed to make it a bit less complicated to get a decent vote for this month.

V-brakes vs canti's, skin wall vs back wall tires, gears vs single speed, garage queen vs in the wild and so on... looked at the photo's about 39646 times (each) 'till I was able to cut back the vast amount of entries to a few of the flock... and the Yeti Ultimate of MFH came out as 'my winner'...

Thanks for the vote Gruff...didn't expect any, but it made me :) ...if you're ever on my side of the Atlantic, you're welcome to give it a good spin.

cheers,
