It took me about 2 seconds to decide. Haro for me. So many great bikes. Love the Montare, Ritchey and C-26. However, looking at the Haro reminds me of paging through MBA as a young lad.

Hardest month I can remember!
Used my tried and tested 'all lent against a wall, which one would you take for a spin' method and cast my vote.
Two of my favorites were ruled out as I've already owned the same bike and one because I'd be scared of snapping it, which left the.....

jonnyboy666's 1995 Orange Vitamin T2 for me. I applied my two part test, does it get ridden or is it just a garage queen, I saw this one in action at Mayhem 2010. Part 2 was which would I most like to own as my main rider, simples, got to be the Orange.

My love for '80 bikes is growing every day so it was between the Ritchey Timber and the Fisher Montare.
I choose the Fisher, for the effort SJ1990 took to build it to original specs, up to the tyres and grips. Perfect build! 8)

Good line up, but that Berthoud just has it. It's just such a nice surprise: who knew GB made Mountain Bikes, and of such quality? A real rarity I'd love to know more about.

Looking at that Berthoud has become an addiction over this last week. It's just one of those bikes that makes you swoon. And rare to boot!
I just am not sure I would ever ride it :oops:

The Fisher and Ritchey are glorious too - classic 80s goodness oozing quality and fun in equal measure.

But I love the Nigel Dean.. It's a no-nonsense quality build that I would both ride and admire in equal measure. So, that's my vote....

+1. It's a beautiful bike and for me riders > ornaments.
