Very strong month with some lovely bikes. Really like the Brodie, Overburys, Manitou, Fat and Fat Ti but the classic Salsa pips it for me. 8)

Hi, I'm new here. So many fantastic bikes! Even limiting the choice to bikes I've ever wanted doesn't narrow it down much!

Love the cro-mega, they always looked like the mountain bike equivalent of an American muscle car. Love the Muddy Fox because it's the first mountain bike I ever wanted when I used to read Bicycle Action and go everywhere on a Peugeot Premiere but I think it has to be the Salsa as it's nigh on perfect.

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!

Captaincosmic's 1992 Rocky Mountain Blizzard for me. Like rc200ti says, it looks fantastic in the flesh, has been a real labour of love and it's being ridden hard every week.

Otherwise I really like the Muddy Fox, it makes me want to save up my paper round money and proudly ride it home from the local bike shop after months of pouring over magazines and brochures!

I really like the Tequesta - looks like an all day, everyday down to earth ride.

And the Overbury's is sublime.

But I have to go with the Muddy Fox, besides the fact that it is an important part of UK mountain bike history the care and attention that has gone into its restoration is exemplary.
