I wish there had been at least one truly vintage bike amongst the group presented. When a low profile funny bike might actually classify as the oldest bike among the group it seems that we don't really have that strong a field. I was ready to vote for the Buzz were it not for those ghastly triathlon extensions. In the end I gave the nod to the Alan but would have been just as happy to see almost any of the other bikes win too. Hopefully in September we'll see at least a few 1970's and earlier bikes.

And the ALAN is just a later type of the ALAN from the 80's...

The Tommasini looks lovely, oozing class. I like the Duell too, gotta get me one of them one day. But, I just like the look of that old Raleigh, up there at the top of a mountain looking like it would work it's ars* off for you. I am going for that :)

I too like the Raleigh but was turned off by the triple chainset and the brake levers that are in the open position.
