If I already had 10 posts, I would have voted for the Alpinestars. I simply adore the Cro-Megas (and especially in such a lovely setting).


Just make 8 more, you can do it!

That Potts looks fantastic! Only problem for me is the fact it looks like a eighties bike to me, but it is from 1994!?!...

Thanks... and yes it really is a ’94. Steve (and WTB) didn’t have new models of frames and parts every year -- but kept refining and evolving things he liked and knew worked well. In particular, the Type-II fork and WTB rollercam brakes were staples of his bikes throughout the 90’s.

Hmmm, narrowed it down to Gaz's Fat Yo Eddy, Veloculture's 87 Fat Chance, or the cool, if not so period correct, Commando (really love the frame/fork/handlebar/crankset).

If the Commando was more original, I think it would be in with a great shout.
Shame the owner didn't pull it from the vote and change a few things :wink:

I love the Torus, Parkpre, the Potts and the wonderful Truffax...
The Yeti is clearly a beautiful, A1 bike and build but from the moment I saw it I just fell in love with the KHS. It just looks, well, lovely...

Amazing month, must admit since I came over from the darkside I am just immersing myself in these truly beautiful machines :D

Well done everyone...

For me it came down to the Steve Potts and the Yeti ARC.

Alas, I simply could not stomach those atrocious HEDs...(though the rest of the bike is lovely).

So my vote goes to the Steelhead.

hard decision this time...

Xizang very nice and clean build but something´s missing
Cyclone with all the rare GT parts, but Aheadset on 91?
Gator Adroit with M900 can´t go wrong with that, unfortunately with re-issue Porcs
Yeti ARC wow what a beauty and a almost perfect mix of parts, my botm

Cheers
Lars

btw my 10th post ;-)
