Well I was going to enter the Blackstar, but when i saw this I decided that this was clearly the winner and there was no point entering mine against this.
This Rocks. :P

Yeah, Andreas is going to be hard to beat. It is like looking at that MBA advertisement. I never knew anyone who had one.

I was all set to go with the Rocky Mountain until I scrolled down to Wadsy's Hei Hei - gotta love it... 8)

If anything other than that C-26 wins, I'll be keenly disappointed.

I have to admit I LOVE that Haro. It's just amazing. Makes me want one in a big way.

That's nice to hear especially now that i can proudly announce that the Scott Superlite has defeated the first mountain last week and it still looks nice and seems to be intact. :D

It does seem quite popular but I can see it having a hard time. Something about it looks weird, just not sitting right, looks a bit cheap maybe :? I had another look at ameybrooks and its not a patch on his. Could simply be down to the picture though. Whatever, the Tomac factor might see it through.

I think it's because it's a copy of the real thing. A team bike should have the history of it being ridden, it should have the marks, scratches and dings from being raced. It's impressive what he has achieved with that bike but its nowhere near as good as, say, the Adrian Timmis dyna-tech or the big framed ex-team yeti elsewhere on here (will edit this later when I find the thread!!)

I'll say it again, that Haro is lush. If it was my size I would be hatching a plot to obtain it for myself!!

It’s the aesthetics of the front wheel which is subconsciously messing with your mind. Technically speaking the outside spokes should trail on a rim brake wheel so it’s on the wrong way round. ;)

Other than that it looks fantastic although a little drab in comparison to the Grove photos. 8)
