Not sure the title for this BOtM was correct. Or at least not sure the entries fit the title close enough (mine included)

The Pugsley, photographed deep in snow in the woods...urban?
The majority (including Ferrits Surly that I am voting for) are photographed in manicured back gardens so sub urban at best.
And mine is blatantly a pure XC bike that I happen to ride around London on.

Any way as I mentioned I voted for Ferrits although the DMR probably does fit the bill better!

Please take on of the first DMR and put it on the DBR (the black bike with red lettering and yellow cables), got confused with the letters as it's not fully in the vote section.

That's just the sort simple bike I would troll around the area on and look nice to me as well.
