Not a huge fan of big size frame but I love the 1992 Kona Hot...

My vote goes for it even if I was close to choose the Brodie!!!

Would have voted Cunningham but I hate single speeds, so, second in line, FAT!

time flies; time to vote, already, and I once again, didn't enter a thing :?
after a first glance; these caught my eye:
GearlessInSeattle's 1992 Kona Hot
.jan's 1991 Fat City Cycles Monster Fat
FMJ's 1995 Brodie Sovereign
nevadasmith's Salsa A La Carte
Bushpig's WTB Phoenix (ex Jacquie Phelan)


good thing, I have more than a week to decide
what do they all have in common...steel baby 8)


narrowing it down:
GearlessInSeattle's 1992 Kona Hot
FMJ's 1995 Brodie Sovereign
nevadasmith's Salsa A La Carte


like all three of these, just about equally, and for about the same reasons,...perhaps it's time for a coin flip.

I think some of the odd camera angles made it harder to pick out a great bike, and maybe I'm swayed by the good photo but its the Salsa for me this month.

Captaincosmic's 1992 Rocky Mountain Blizzard. I know this bike. I know how carefully it was built, and I see it being ridden hard at least once a week,..... and I would enjoy it. So it will get my vote.

If it hadn't been for the above then in order it would have been:
Gil_M Pace RC-100
the duke's Overbury's
StarTrek's Fat Chance Titanium.

Best stone wall goes to Gearless in Seattle.

I have to say that I'm tempted to vote for DegsUK's Carrera Kathmandu just so that he can save money with his free subs by not buying bike mags and spend a portion of it on a longer chain. Oh that poor rear mech!
